I think you will find Dorna 'Jumped the Gun' with the announcement about Danny and Schrotter joining the team. It wasnt supposed to be announced until mid Jan, but to clear up a few points :- Mahindra will not just be another sponsor of the old Loncin/Lambretta project, Mahindra have bought Engines Engineering completly, they are now part of the Mahindra group. The 2011 project is a completly new project so dont expect to see a rebadged Lambretta. As pointed out earlier, they had nothing to do with the Maxtra/Haojue project. I have it on good authority, although unreliable the 2010 engine was quick and was regularly in the top 3 bikes through the speed traps, unfortunalty its low down grunt was missing and was slow out of the corners. 2011 is a transition year before we get Moto3, which surely is the goal for this project, Mahindra sold nearly 16,000 scooters in India, in November !! Nothing on Dannys website about the project either, lets wait for the launch
