Meanwhile, in other news, Sears Roebuck and Co has announced that it will join forces with fabled Italian brand Aermachi.(sic?)

A leading edge 1000 machine is rumoured to be ready for testing.

Why does CRT even bother? They will be as fast as a Moto2 bike. What's the point? Really a 1000cc bike no faster than a 600cc bike. 5 sec slower than the Motogp bikes means they will be lapped each event and be mobile chicanes for the faster GP bikes.

Maybe we should let the Electric bikes on the track too, they're prototypes too.

Don't expect the CRTs to be quick yet,on paper they should blow a super bike off the track but SBs have years of testing and honing.The full package needs to come together,engines should be good but the first generation frames will require a lot more work along with suspension, electronics and brakes,how many of these bikes have had proper wind tunnel time.

Its gonna be a race within a race for a few years,the question is will the rewards be good enough to make teams stick around,my thinking is that they won't.

That is why Dorna are trying to sort out rules to close the gap.
How anybody can expect a bike to be as fast as a bike that has evolved over 10 years is beyond me. Every version of factory/Satelite bike has done 100's of km before we see it, how many times has the GP12 been tested by the test team in the last 2 months?.
Every version of SBK, WSS bike spends weeks going round the track in its road form before we see it.
Yet a CRT is supposed to be as quick as the fastest bikes in the world after a few days testing.
