Until now, they may have been able to fulfill their dream of equipping their motorcycle with what they actually need and want.

That’s why lots of manufacturers like Yamaha, Honda, Ducati or Kawasaki are usually ready to invest in their group of racers’ fortunes, from hundreds to millions USD.

Since normal valves are not able to meet the requirements for high speed, the top motorcycle racing groups in motoGP championship mostly apply the aerial valve system of both opening and closing. The camshaft is still the equipment that is in charge of opening and locking the valve for the engine.

However, it will use a flow of airy force with a useful tube instead of the spring for moving the atmosphere improvement, that’s also where the total area of this component is wider or smaller.

At the same time, the racing motorcycle formula 1 passes down system of gear-case without any breaks in the middle for the motoGP racing’s motorcycles. Thanks to this technic, the motorcycles will be able to change to a new gear. This process happens even when the front gear is not finished.

As calculated, the racing motorcycles of Honda production take as rapidly as the light speed to change the number while Yamaha manufacturer’s racing motorcycles need 0.038 to finish moving from one number to another. But the given structure is not yet used for commercial vehicles.

The motorGP motorcycles use the carbon braking disk type, with two braking disk at the front position, called the fourth Brembo pistols produced by using monolithic aluminum with great capability to go against the hot level, to 900 degree Moreover, the brake behind is the only disk and created by using core metals, with the lining of this component made of the same metals, containing from 2 to 4  pistottls.
