What on earth is going on...This is no CRT bike if slower to WSBK bike by 3 secs...WSBK bike is using steel brake, heavier by 8 kg, use pirreli tire and minimal modification...Just get a WSBK Bike, change to Carbon brake,shed 8 kg, new engine parts, port polish, new electronics,etc..2 secs faster than CBR100OR WSBK

@V6Stroker seems to me you haven't understood the crt rules yet only the engine can be used from production bike not the chassis and any other parts of bike..except engine everything should be prototype so you cannot use a tuned up wsbk spec will take some time to adjust a new semi prototype bike...maye next season a crt bike will be faster tham wsbk and slower than moto gp prototype..

A MotoGP bike leans up to 10 degrees further than a Superbike, the tires are that much grippier. put those tires on a Superbike, as suggested, and watch it tie itself in all sorts of knots + drag parts on the tarmac, not to mention the chatter. If only the race engineers, who have been makig a living building bikes for decades, in some cases, knew as much as some armchair specialists on this forum...

I thought the rules simply allow any chasis.

They don't say you *can't* use a production chasis. Its just that folk assume people will come with an experimental chasis which is better they're not *expecting* production chasis to be used?

Beside which, it would be no difficult feat to make small but insignificant modifications to make a production chasis 'bespoke'.
