Bridgepoint brings together MotoGP and World Superbikes

"We fully expect to develop and strengthen the distinct nature of both MotoGP and WorldSBK as separate properties and remain committed to working with teams and manufacturers, circuit owners, sponsors and broadcasters to give fans the best experience yet.”

With both championships run by the same organisation, greater changes to the technical rules can be expected in order to carve a clearer distinction between them.

It should also help Dorna push ahead with some of its more radical cost-cutting plans for MotoGP, without fearing that WSBK could take advantage.

For example, if MotoGP clamps down on electronics, it is logical to believe that WSBK will now do likewise - and to an even greater level, thus allowing MotoGP to retain the technological high ground.

Attempts might also be made to tidy up some of the CRT 'issues', related to the superbike-powered prototypes that can now race as a privateer MotoGP entry.

At present the CRT engine performance is lower than in WSBK, due to MotoGP's limit on engine-changes.

it's pretty obvious... it's exactly what happens in the stock market, the big declining company without ideas (motoGP), buys the smaller successful company which is growing fast (WSBK)
