    Role of record holder is over for the time being

    SHAFTS – With 25 wins, Honda is still the most successful motorcycle manufacturer on the Assen circuit, but the Japanese brand has lost its shine. A low point in existence was last week’s Grand Prix at the Sachsenring when all four Honda riders fell outside the World Cup points, something that had not happened for a very long time. Dark clouds are also gathering over Honda during the 91st Dutch TT, despite a sunny race day being forecast.
