ar86: The 300cc sport bike is very popular nowadays, why not 300cc for moto3..?
Since its inception moto3 has been very successful. Packed fields, brilliant races and some talented riders. Why change it? It is a prototype series, not a series for bikes produced just for stupid governments and their driver licensing changes.
