Finally....

Now disagree or not, you watch this lad closely because he's gonna be a sensation as far as i'm concerned. I'm a little confused at this new "middle tier" in MotoGP (please educate me if your a bit of a "Spalder's"), between the prototypes and the CRT's, not sure what the pace is going to be like in comparison - but regardless, Redding WILL impress.

Word of warning to Brad Smith.......GO FASTER, your gonna get shown up next year son.

@Whapper "I was worried he was going to get a Ducati or CRT."

I'm no Spalders but Caramel Expel-etive announced a few weeks ago that the CRT class has been abolished for 2014 onwards

Will be good to wach, i expect a lot from the production racer machine.. its a good start for Scoot and then we will see how good it is compared to Bautista bike that is one bike with Factory engine and chassi..

Probably the best he could of hoped for in Moto GP. Nice to see a rider getting into the top tier (all be it on a production racer) due to talent, rather than sponsors or nationality. The extra power will get rid of some of his weight disadvantage too :) Good luck Scott.

@Tetley

So no CRT's next year?

To be fair, no great loss, its only Espagaro that managed any sort of result on them, but i do like the idea of a more "even" playing field. It would be nice for the private teams with one of these customer bikes to take some serious scalps from the factory prototype boys....its why i like the FA cup......theres nothing better than a league 1 team beating Man U or whatever. Cheers for that though boss.

Also, theres only 1 Spalders..!!

I'm guessing the production RCV will be Showa+Nissin as well as being an RCV with steel valve springs, 24L fuel, Spec ECU-Software and conventional gearbox.

Anyone want to guess how competitive it will be in the right hands? I suspect the biggest differences between Bautista and Redding will be rider experience as the extra 4l of race fuel should counter all the other differences.
