FIM: "MotoGP = Prototype"

DORNA: "MotoGP = Specs based (Prototype not allowed)"

Spectators: "We want more Prototypes, more manufacturers and more sponsors."

I believe this is a good thing. A distinct identity between the two, bringing costs down for both series, hopefully allowing more competitors on the grid.

The same company owns both entities, they want to profit on both sides so they'll want both series to be successful.

Added bonus is that there may be fewer overlaps of gp and wsb, potentially leading to more weekends of racing to watch at the track or on the telly

i can hear the sound in the WSBK paddock now, .... KAOOOOOOOOOSH. These guys are gonna slow down the WSBK bikes, because they want the spectators to believe MotoGP is the fastest thing going, because it will get ratings for their stupid TV commercials. So glad I havent owned a TV for almost 10 years, would have to pay me to sit in front of one of those things.

Honda, Yamaha and Ducati should start their own series ASAP. They should also invite other manufacturers like BMW, Kawasaki et al to join.

Dorna and Spaz-leta will destroy motorcycle racing at the altar of profits in no time.

MotoGP will get slower, to make CRT look good, WSBK will get much slower, to make MotoGP look good. The good thing is that WSBK will get much cheaper, allowing even more teams to be competitive, as the bikes move closer and closer to Superstock with slicks.
