Jorge Lorenzo, a Finalist on Spain’s Masked Singer

The Spanish version of “The Masked Singer” is nearing the end of its final season, with its 4th last competitor having been voted off the show. Whenever someone is voted off the Masked Singer, they meant to reveal themselves to the audience. This week’s episode saw Jorge Lorenzo from MotoGP take off the mask, revealing himself as the Raven. It shocked the judges & participating audience members. Jorge Lorenzo has acquired the MotoGP Championship on three occasions, proving himself an iconic rider that’s historically ranked with the best in MotoGP.

Lorenzo has competed for Honda, Ducati, and Yamaha before retiring from MotoGP. Last year marked Jorge’s final season in MotoGP. It was planned for Lorenzo to return alongside Yamaha as a test rider for 2020. However, those plans were made before Covid-19 became an international pandemic. Lorenzo wouldn’t be provided ample opportunity to sustain his position as Yamaha Test Driver, with four hours sustained before the partnership fell through behind closed doors.

Seeing Jorge Lorenzo reach the finale of Spain’s Masked Singer wasn’t anticipated. When questioned about his experience, the three-time champion of MotoGP expressed it was unforgettable & unique to previous competitions in his life. Similar to his career in MotoGP, Jorge Lorenzo’s time in the Masked Singer was short-lived. Lorenzo sustained eleven seasons in MotoGP before retiring, which is considered low for competitors of his calibre. His career sustained nine years with Yamaha Racing, beginning in 2008 & ending by 2017. Lorenzo obtained placement with Ducati for the 2017/18 season. After acquiring only three podiums with Ducati over two campaigns, Jorge Lorenzo switched to Honda Racing for 2019.

Injury at Honda

That decision proved unfavourable for Lorenzo, who would experience an ill-fated injury & fail to obtain a top-ten placement throughout the 2019 season. After MotoGP ended their 2019 campaign, Jorge Lorenzo announced his retirement from professional racing. Thousands worldwide have rallied for the Spanish racer to return to racing. However, Jorge Lorenzo is unlikely to return permitting that Marc Marquez is still competing.

AER Postponed Until January 2022

Promises were made that whenever AER returns, it’ll be the best event witnessed in the tournament’s history.

Harley-Davidson Confirm the 1250cc Pan America

The Pan American 1250cc Motorcycle from Harley-Davidson has been detailed, with information released providing users an official release month. This cycle will release in the United States & Canada in February 2021, marking the end of continued delays that plagued this motorcycles release.

It’s been three years since Harley-Davidson first announced the Pan American 1250cc, with minor information regarding its manufacturing & design not being provided for years. That changed following the Covid-19 Pandemic, with HD Motorcycles working to renovate their brand & acquire customers across growing markets worldwide. Harley-Davidson has confirmed that an official trailer is releasing on January 19th, with the 1250cc Pan American arriving on February 22nd.

Consumers witness firsthand how this motorcycle looked & drove during the 2019 EICMA Expo. Harley-Davidson allowed the cycle to be showcased in it’s near-production form. Customers anticipated the vehicle would release weeks later. That wouldn’t be the case, with the Covid-19 Pandemic breaking out worldwide days after EICMA 2019 ended. Since then, information regarding the Harley-Davidson 1250cc Pan American has been minimal. That was until December 14th, with the corporate division of HD Motorcycles release new images of the Pan American in Europe. It confirms that Harley-Davidson received their Euro5 Legislation to release models across the European Union. This means an exponential level of growth is coming for this brand.

European Shockwave

Fans of Harley-Davidson were first introduced to the Pan American 1250cc in Summer 2018. It prompted multiple shockwaves throughout EICMA, then the entire industry. Nobody anticipated that HD Motorcycles would announce an updated & enhanced water-cooled engine with polarising capabilities. This prominent advancement in manufacturing has made this cycle desirable to consumers worldwide, with notable interest amongst European residents. It’s expected that Harley-Davidson’s 1250cc Pan American will outsell anticipated volumes in Europe, with the motorcycling market in the EU growing tenfold during Covid-19.

Marc Marquez Sidelined until June 2021

Information regarding the condition of Marc Marquez from MotoGP was provided on November 3rd. Details indicated that after completing his third operation, Marquez would require six months for recovery. Marquez announced that healing & recovery would be sustained in Madrid, the homeplace of MotoGP’s 6-Time Champion. Delays associated with recovery follows after doctors incorrectly performed the first surgery, prompting a second to follow.

The second surgery failed, with healthcare experts struggling to ascertain what’s required to recover Marc Marquez’s right arm. Thirty days of Marquez sustaining discussions with multiple doctors resulted in the determination that a third surgery is required. It’d take eight hours for completion, with healthcare experts on-scene clarifying that zero complications were sustained. Recovery won’t be challenging but lengthy, with Marquez slated to miss the season opener on March 28th. Timeframes given for healing suggests that Marc Marquez could miss almost half of 2021 MotoGP campaign.

Determination to resume racing hasn’t ever been more vital for Marc Marquez. That became evident after breaking his arm on July 19th. Marquez missed the entire 2020 MotoGP Campaign following the Spanish GP incident, with that race marking the first of this years. Learning Marquez will require almost half of next years campaign for healing is devastating for supporters & the driver himself. Marc Marquez hasn’t spoken with reporters after learning of the prolonged timeframe for recovery. It’s expected that Stefan Bradl will sustain his replacement seat for Marquez until the champ’s formal return in Mid-2021.

Third & Final Surgery

Marc Marquez challenged multiple healthcare experts to locate solutions that wouldn’t involve a third surgery. There wasn’t an individual worldwide capable of healing Marquez without extensive reformatting of his bone structure. It was learned that hip bone was taken from Marquez & grafted onto the right-arms humerus areas.

Doctors hope that the newly introduced bone structure will cover Marquez’s metal plating from previous surgeries. June 2020 will see Marquez evaluated & determined if the surgery was successful. Failure with a third surgery will likely mean the forced retirement of Marc Marquez, which would devastate the MotoGP Paddock & Community. All that’d be left is his younger brother to continue the family’s legacy, which would be impossible to sustain.

Jawa Moto Sold Fifty Thousand Units in India During 2020

November 2020 had investors with Jawa Motorcycles thrilled at incredible growth. The “Classic Legends Lineup” had been exported from Czechoslovakia to India, Jawa Motorcycles primary market. Indian’s adopted Jawa into their mainstream vehicles since 1973, with popularity dwindling from 2000 to 2018. The Covid-19 pandemic prompted investors & executives with Jawa Motorcycles to anticipate lower sale volumes. Consideration of the financial fallout for standard Indian consumers wasn’t accounted into lowered quarterly expectations. Cars, SUVs, and Trucks have been sold at exponential rates to dealers across India.

Consumers have elected two-wheeled vehicles for cost savings measures during the pandemic. Subsequently, Jawa Motorcycles has sold 50+ thousand vehicles since November 2019. Sale volumes didn’t decline when the epidemic prompted international lockdowns, furloughed jobs, and fewer finances for the average consumers. Jawa Motorcycles also combatted numerous productions concerns during the Covid-19 pandemic & proved their brand still reputable since rebranding themselves in December 2018. 50+ thousand motorcycles sold is also their highest volume since the rebranding, which previous averages were sustaining 30+ thousand vehicles sold per year.

The Chief Executive Officer of Jawa Motorcycles – India Division, spoke on the unexpected increase in sale volumes. CEO Ashish Singh Joshi clarified that everyone employed at the Indian Division of Jawa is proud of achieving incredible sales in a short period. Most aren’t aware that the “Classic Legends Lineup” in Czechoslovakia became an entire brand for India. Jawa Motorcycles didn’t rebrand themselves with the same name, changing themselves over to “Classic Legends Motorcycles”. This rebranding proved favourable with overall sales & unparalleled growth compared to their previous namesake.

New Models, Continued Growth

CEO Ashish Singh Joshi believes that “Classic Legends Motorcycles” will continue to experience unparalleled growth from 2021 to 2022. Investors have been given new expectations for sale volumes with the upcoming fiscal year, with predictions suggestion 100+ motorcycles being sold to Indian consumers.

Marc Marquez Sidelined for Remainder of 2020 MotoGP Season

Repsol Honda & MotoGP confirmed that Marc Marquez wouldn’t make his formal return to racing on November 7th. It’d been speculated that the European Grand Prix would see Marquez return to his RC-213V, which would have meant Stefan Bradl being sidelined as the replacement driver. October 4th saw Repsol Honda confirm that Marquez won’t return, requiring additional time to heal injuries from earlier this season correctly. That period of healing isn’t known, with Repsol Honda not ruling out the possibility of Marc Marquez returning for Valencia or Portuguese Grand Prix.

Marc Marquez wasn’t given a chance to obtain the 7th championship in MotoGP during 2020. That’s because Marquez broke his right arm during the Jerez Grand Prix. The six-time champion would return during the Andalusian Grand Prix, only to suffer an additional injury after his initial operation wasn’t appropriately completed by healthcare personnel. It created further damage to Marquez’s right-arm, requiring a second operation. His healing time for the second operation was longer than expected, with Spanish media reporting in October that Marc Marquez needed a third operation. Repsol Honda would confirm that report false & now supporters have seen the six-time champion return to the MotoGP grid. His position, for now, is purely moral support for Repsol Honda.

Repsol Honda worked diligently towards refuting any claims that Marc Marquez wouldn’t return in 2020. It wouldn’t be until their replacement driver of Stefan Bradl informed Austrian media that he’d likely drive at the Valencia & Portuguese Grand Prix’s, that Repsol Honda was forced to confirm that Marquez is concentrating on healing beyond riding. Bradl would clarify that Repsol Honda notified him he’d be competing for the remainder of 2020s season. It’s expected that his premature announcement has evoked anger within the team, eliminating any opportunities of Stefan Bradl driving for Repsol Honda in future seasons.

Repsol Honda confirmed on October 4th that Stefan Bradly would compete at the European Grand Prix & first round of the Valencia Grand Prix. When questioned on Marquez’s confirmed return for the second round at Valencia & the Portuguese GP, Repsol Honda didn’t rule out the opportunity but wouldn’t make an official announcement. When accounting for the associated risk with driving for Marc Marquez in the final two races, it’s easy to understand why the six-time champion wouldn’t compete.
