I've tested this for several hours and i think the new ones are much more ponderous.
I have to slow down much more before tight corners than before and the bikes are very unstable during hard braking.

The bikes have changed significantly from the previous version. The physics have been made completely from scratch.

Not sure if only me, but I feel like I was riding on ice - these tyres are sliding.
I can't remember if I had the same problem with previous version.

But maybe I just should try riding more to understand them...

I would think with modern fly-by wire technology controlling the TC on MotoGP bikes these days, that how much the rear slides under power depends on how much TC you have applied? Did you have TC applied correctly Gzehoo? Or is the rear sliding very easily no matter what TC setting?

My two cents. Have just tried the M1 and RSV so far around Jerez. I think the front of the Yamaha is too light. Very easy to get tank-slappers when you apply the throttle and the front is floating a lot under braking. The Honda (as it was also the case before the update) feels much more planted. I also think that both bikes are struggling too much with wide corner exits, You have to take very late apexes to be able to apply the gas mid corner to exit without running wide.

Cheers,
