I know they're expensive, but I like the carbon wheels. I can buy them myself to put on my road bike (not so sure about racing in general), so I think MotoGP should allow them. Besides, they can't be the priciest thing on the bike.

I'm a bit confused about this 'random allocation' of moto3 engines.
There's more than one engine supplier in moto3 so are the engines being distributed 'randomly'? If so, a team might get a Honda engine in one race and a KTM for the next? That would be quite a challenge for the engineers and riders!

Or is this about moto2, where it would make absolute sense (although I thought the engines were randomly allocated already).

So Moto3 becomes a one controlled engine class from 2014?
So what was the arguement for replacing the 125s with a techically vibrant 250 single four stroke class to encourage the smaller manufacturers to participate? Who wiil supply the 'organisers' with the engines to distribute radomly - Honda by any chance?
More Dorna crap!

People on here do make me laugh, why don't you read what it says?
The manufacturers will supply the engines to Dorna who will pass on the engines to those who buy them, so if 15 riders are using Honda engines, Honda will give Dorna 120 engines and Dorna will give them to the teams that are buying them, likewise with KTM. This stops the manufacturers supplying better engines to certain teams as they will randomly be selected by Dorna.
Nowhere does it say they will be a spec engine.

I did laugh a bit louder at Mr Fill's comments.
