i still thinking they should offer more
different kind of compounds,

not necesary build one for each team,
just let them choose wich one better for them,

dont obey to suit the same, that only make
the bikes are a very similar character between
different brands

So on the one hand CRT is supposed to cut costs, yet Bridgestone are creating bespoke tyres for the CRT bikes? Surely more tyres = more cost.

He says they already have the soft rubber compound and they are using the same construction method as the harder rears so I doubt there would be any massive increase in costs.

CRT are like 3rd tier bikes anyway. At least let them have a rear tire they can get some heat into.

Well, if you are going to change the product of motogp bikes then obviously you need to create a new one and this is exactly what is happening with the CRT bikes. Eventually they will reach a certain level and the multi-pound machines will be discontinued and hopefully the new CRT(MotoGP)bikes will bring about close racing again.
