"In other words, the emphasis will be more on chassis, electronics, power delivery and braking..."

Unfortunately, the MotoGP bikes have better chassis, electronics, power delivery and brakes.....

So no chance for the CRT's.

At the faster Assen, De Puniet was only 0.5s off Barbera's Ducati in qualifying. They are still a second off in the race at Assen though. But in qualifying maybe, then if it rains......

CRT's have done nothing for MotoGP other than to make the grid bigger and give you something to look at when watching at the circuit while you're waiting for the prototypes to come back around.
The whole series has lost the plot and become a complete snoozefest.

"moto gp was boring and again wsbk was great y doesnt ducati just go bvack to wsbk with a factory team and take rossi with them"
Have to agree and imagine how many Euros they'd save in doing so?
Watching Sundays excellent WSB action, I just had to ask myself when was the last time there was a 4 way fight for the lead at the end of a MotoGP?

CRT have more than a chance.
We've now seen that the lead Moto2 bikes are faster than some of the CRT's, even with no electronics and just 125bhp.
If you gave Marquez 200bhp and even crude TC and anti wheelie on his Moto2 bike I bet he'd find 2 seconds a lap.

It's not fair to compare Lorenzo and Stoner on the best bikes to riders like Hernandez on project CRT bikes.
It's a shame that MotoGP is dropping the rookie rule as I'd love to see a top draw Moto2 rider get a CRT ride.
Way things are at the moment you'll never get a Marquez-esqe figure on a CRT bike.
