Dani Pedrosa's RC213 Honda with the 'whale shark' fairing. HRC does not seem to be struggling with the new fuel allocation rules. Honda as a company has already been through this several times in car racing--racing on less fuel every year.

Rossi--still very fast. He looks like he has lost some weight and clearly tucks in well behind the tiny screen of the M1.

As is normal, there are several different configurations of Ducati at the test.

Marlboro Ducati: to get the new contract they need to get results.

This is Colin Edwards II's M1 based Yamaha. Most of it looks to be 2013-level tackle--a great sign. Thus far his teammate, Aleix Espargaro, is dropping jaws with his speed. He posted the fifth-fastest time today. And, yes, that bracket under the countershaft sprocket is holding the bike and engine together. Fine, it isn't.

There is no 'best helmet award' at Sepang, but if there were, here is the easy winner.

Marc Marquez's work cubicle. Like a new Gold Wing, it must be hard to be technologically bored when at the controls.

FTR-Kawasaki will be in use by the Avintia Racing MotoGP team in 2014. Can what we once knew as a 'CRT' bike keep pace with the Open and Factory machines?
