“It's clear that we must use less expensive bikes and if this is the only way I wouldn't have problems riding a CRT”

Surely it would be "cheaper" to bin the maximum fuel limit, and have standard ECU's?? They're spending a fortune on electronics, to get around the 21 litre limit??? Or is that a too simplistic view??

That way we could have proper prototypes, and private teams could buy last years bikes to run outright??

take away the fuel limit and half the electronics are removed..there you now hav a cheaper bike....

regarding rossi switching, if rossi gets the ducati sorted next year, i dont think he will switch to any other team....going back to yamaha is out of question and switching to honda wont be possible till casey is there....the remaining teams have 2 less experience for making the most out of CRT

but if the CRT's make motogp races similar to moto2 races, it will surely be good....

I'm a Rossi fan, but there's no way that they're going to get the Ducati on the pace for next season. They are just too far back and the other teams aren't going to stand still. I am looking forward to Rossi on a CRT in 2013 and then hopefully we'll get some racing again.

And this differs from SuperBikes because?

With the odd exception, most of us watch MotoGP for 4 or 5 riders only.

One wonders what the costs of the bikes and teams are compared to the license fees paid to the organisers...I suspect this more about them maintaining their income than it is about the sport.

I agree with a few of the previous post, simplify the bikes and we get closer racing. Electronics are costing way too much. I race in Germany and I remember when you could get about 10-15 more hp with 'normal tuning'! Nowadays, you've gotta buy $5000-$10000 worth of electronics! :(
