re: "i wonder if we will ever see a mfg make a smaller capacity bike in the hopes of making up the difference in the corners."

nope, we've already been down the road of deliberately "bringing knives to the gunfight". such thinking is now the exclusive domain of ezpelata and the CutRaTe's.

re: "just like moto2 was trash talked on... that didnt last long either"

wait one. there's still plenty of trash talked about BSB's lost 600rr cup masquerading as a world championship up in grandprix.

Crash net Really?
Heavier Bikes
New Tyres that heat up fast but wear out quicker
Less fuel so the bikes are set low
800cc 5 year development 1000cc 4 tests
800cc already more HP than needed
What do we expect! so Crash Seriously?

i think, maybe cal the best for 1000cc engine.. clearly, he fast adaptation his bike.

if him gets best result this season (better than ben spies and andrea dovisiozo), he take the 2nd seed at yamaha factory racing with jorge lorenzo 1st seed.

he become more dangerous this season, can't wait to see who the best..(ben, cal or dovi...?)

@Troy - No private teams will be using an 800 because they haven't got any - all the bikes are returned to the manufacturer at the end of the years lease. Most will have been crushed.

@Nick681 - what rev limits? There is a rev limit in Moto3, but not MotoGP.

As others have said we can't conclude anything from these times other than Cal was slow this time last year.
