This will only work if Aprilia is the only CRT manufacturer. The other less 'fortunate' outfits are gonnna get fuk'd by a single tire rule, just like Ducati and Honda.

Monopoly is not competition. Put WSBK and MotoGP on (mass produced/regulated) production slicks, they wont be bound to whom ever Bridgestone decide to build their tires around. Because you cannot make a one size fits all tire, and the money is just not there to force everyone to build the same style of bike. Does everyone want to see M1 clones?

Stupid Dorna.

Dorna ready to change the rules again, after most of the bikes are built. Plucking at straws, to make a more interesting show, now that most believe it is just be a race between Honda & Yamaha for the podium.

thats funny, cause you could say that about the current implementation with respect to Honda and Ducati.

But the new tires are safer, i mean, ... they are safer, and ... well ... umm ... yeah. Well ... see ... who cares if Ducati has traction problems and Honda's wheels go bump on the brakes. Its safer!!!!

Meanwhile the prototypes will be allocated square tyres the reduce the disparity.

The only way to slow the factory Yams and Hondas down is to force them to carry pillion passengers during the race!
Now that would be one scary ride!
Any volunters?
