Although it is not confirmed one hundred percent that they can put it to the test, according to the statements of the head of Yamaha, Lin Jarvis, Yamaha could finally put on track and at the disposal of Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi the new seamless change that allows reduction without clutch.
In the war of continuous changes without fissures, that is to say, the so-called seamless of which we showed you how it works when we learned of its existence and use by Honda, Yamaha has always been in tow of the wing mark. If it took time to get the change out to increase gear, it has also been slower than Honda's engineers to launch one that allows them to reduce without jumping as well.
And it is that although increasing gear this change is translated into a few tenths per laps, in reductions it becomes more important since it is not necessary to use the clutch lever and the bike remains long more stable in the braking and cornering phase, one of Honda's strongest points in the last two seasons and highlighted even by Yamaha's own riders.
Despite wanting to be one hundred percent sure of its operation, they would need to put it to the test already to have margin of correct any detail before the start of the World Cup in Qatar next March and thus try to reduce the apparent disadvantage with Honda. We will be attentive to if its use is confirmed these days.
