MotoGP » POLL: What should Dorna's red line be?

Should Dorna stick to its guns over a control ECU issue, or back down if the MotoGP manufacturers plan to quit?

Dorna should start listening before they no teams and start scratching their heads wondering where everyone is.
Makes perfect sense , if the electronics are to be passed down to road bikes eventually, unless Dorna against road safety(?).
As for costs, it looks like all the teams are doing just fine, no one is threatening to leave because their ECU is too expensive.

do not mess with a dying product, let the things as they are for now

and merger motogp with wsbk by 2014 or 2015, using wsbk 2 races formula

and abandoning useless overexpensive prototypes who look like a normal motorbike anyway

the red line should be about 17,000rpm that way you don't need the pneumatic valve's or the desmo system,this way the engines will be affordable and more reliable.

Only one thing matters to the fans - close racing.
Motogp racing is the most boring it has EVER been, SBK is the best it's ever been.
Do whatever makes the racing closest, whoever decides to chuck their toys out the pram and leave because they dont like the rules.

Seriously - do you really want a championship where Lorenzo and Pedrosa keep winning everything or do you want to see half a dozen riders in with a chance ever week??

Teams have no where to go WSBK is a Dorna brand now so whether they eat in burger king or kfc the money will go to the same cashier i.e. Dorna. How many of you out there own a bike which has ECU technology from MotoGP?! MotoGP right now is who spends more win not sure this is the right direction for the show and for the fans.

it's actually more than half a dozen who can win in wsbk...

biaggy, sykes, melandri, laverty, checa, rea, guintoli, davies, checa, baz, haslam, giugliano...

it's a dozen

(only haslam and giugliano have failed winning a race beetween those, haslam on the last corner and giugliano because he always crashes...)

Dorna should work with some one like BRP-Rotax & provide Standard 2-Stroke FI Long Life Motor's with Complete Electrical's displacing 333-Single, 666-Twin, 999-Triple for Moto-GP. Then who ever could come up with Rolling Chassis & Aero Kit with in the guidelines could come take part similar to F-1 & prove themselves. This way it will be truly Proto-Type enabling close racing and at the same time Cost Effective. Factories should only be allowed to take part in WSBK directly and indirectly in Moto-GP by providing the necessary things similar to a CRT-ART.

Current 1000cc has too much power, it's hardly ridable without electronics. As a result we have riders-operators. I really liked the proposal of unified cylinder. Four-750cc, two-375cc, one-188cc. This would cut the cost. And standard ECU. This would make people like Stoner smile who are more riders than operators.

Close racing main essential is the number of the talents that could make the front group busy in the racing.

Machinery based attempt to produce a close racing will never happened in a million years. Unless, they replace the riders with a robots.

17,000rpm is the perfect rev limit and no specs ECU allows to keep the sport alive and the MotoGP racing innovation advancing.
