Actually, this might not be too bad of an idea. The factories would be forced to use the software Dorna provide or else they would have to spend spend spend....

Dorna are smart...

If the Moto2 combined rider and bike minimum weight limit is 'effective immediately', are certain teams going to have to bolt lead ingots onto their bikes overnight or fill their riders' pockets with change for the race tomorrow?

As for the MotoGP class, I see Dorna have decided to let Honda have its way, in the sense that, as HRC have repeatedly insisted they need their own ECU software because fuel economy R&D is the reason they go racing, then a 4l handicap with respect to the CRTs and reducing from 21l to 20l should give them plenty of research to do.

who did all the bitching to keep the rider/bike weight out of motogp... it works in moto3, its going to work in moto2 just get it over with and do it in motogp... sorry to all the tiny spanish dudes but its only fair.

the excuse o being bigger and being able to muscle a bike around more making up for the power to weight ratio went out the window a long time ago one electronics took over

Moto2 rules changed now Marc Marquez is leaving. He would of been beaten more had this rule be in place this season.

Oh and Marquez fan boys, lets not forget the million miles of testing he has done due to having loads of cash thrown at him. Compared to other teams who can barely afford to complete the season without ever testing. Moto2 testing should be limited in season for full time riders.

@ Bike Racing Fan. Beaten more by whom. Espagaro lol. He weighs virtually the same and is on the better chassis. Or Redding. He won't ever win a title no matter how good brits like to think he is. A combined weight limit won't change that. The only thing that will is all his closest competitors leaving for Motogp....
