6. I hear you, Kenny! Way back in the 1990s, Kenny Roberts inveighed against corner speed, saying that relying on edge grip all the way around a corner exposes the rider to unnecessary risk and uses up edge grip, which veteran Öhlins tech Jon Cornwell calls "a wasting asset." Honda's V-shaped line is really the modern version of Kenny's dirt-track-derived point-and-shoot style. The rider enters at substantial but not extreme lean, concentrates his turning at the apex and on the tire edges (this is when Marc Marquez gets his elbow on the pavement), then lifts the bike dramatically to begin hard acceleration for a high exit speed. This reduces risk and conserves edge grip, while giving a fast, accelerating corner exit. This year's Bridgestones favor this style and not Lorenzo's.
