The fools at Dorna only realize power deficit of CRT after half the season gone. They should have known earlier and anybody who took high school physics know the power deficit of CRT even before Dec Testing last year

How about forget CRTs and place a 1 million Euro price tag on any 2 year old kit from MotoGP. With stipulation it would have to be raced, etc. This would enable someone (privateers) to be somewhat competitive for a while at least. Also, the rules would need to be written such that these purchased bikes would be able to be used at least 2 years following purchase, so maybe a 6 year rules freeze?

Serioulsy, just run what ya' brung and let the boys race for a change.

I say there should be no restrictions on factory bikes for bore, stroke, rpm, cylinders.
This will attract other manufacturers and more importantly allow manufacturers to develop best possible specs rather than FIM/Dorna controlled specs.
Prototype racing has ended up becoming a 2 horse race, Yamaha and Honda.
Free the regulations so that the designers/engineers can develop something new.
