We need more bikes and we need a better show but Dorna need to think of the whole picture and not just costs!
IMHO, having one bike is not the way to go - for everybody concerned, teams, riders fans and sponsors.
Teams will have more than enough spares to build a second bike, but if a rider crashes, maybe through no fault of his own (e.g. Moto2 Malaysia 2011), he will lose valuable set-up time thus running the risk of not being competitive = more processional race
Fans - session times have already been reduced and if a rider crashes they they will get to see even less of the riders they paid money to see.....and I do not see entrance prices being reduced
Sponsors - if a rider crashes there is less exposure for my brand and if it is in warm up and the bike cannot be prepared in time for the race I would be seriously pissed off and look to take my money somewhere else
So Dorna, rather than the usual blinkered view, think of the the fans & paying public. F1 can do it so if you can't then
