I'm going to scream if one more person says "uh, durrr, I think they should bring back 990's..." WHY???? Is a 220bhp 800cc race bike not fast enough? These bikes haver smililar power to WSBK but are lighter with far advanced chassis'. 125 and 250 racing is the closest there is, with 60 and 110bhp respectively. Keep the 800's- factories can't afford to go backwards, and like everyone else says, drop GPS, 'adaptive traction control', carbon brakes and limit the number of engines used in a season. Herve Poncharal knows his beans- let's hope he can help sabve our sport.

Gps is helping traction control to know at what corner they are and to exit smoothly How can they talk about entertaiment if they switched to bbc? sorry for this topic reopened,, just move back to 1000cc, put some revlimits not to fly above 340kmh and ofcourse take out some traction control :p
