Interesting topic and good on Crash and McLaren for getting the stats together.. It's difficult to draw meaningful comparrison between Moto2/WSS as Moto2 bikes back wheel power is reputed to be around 125bhp next to WSS @145. M2 weight is 135kg, WSS 161kg. WSS has more advanced electronics but run stock frames, the biggest factor is tyres with Moto2 allowed slicks and WSS runnning sticky street hoops. My point is..WSS are heavier and run street tyres but are still faster..How can Moto2 be regarded as the legitimate feeder to GP, especially when we go 1000cc next year? Ezpeleta will make sure the champ gets a ride, but will team managers look to recruit from there when SBK is more relevant?
