@Talentfan Agreed. Those who insist we need to preserve 'pure prototypes' forget racing history began with non-factory teams modifying road bikes to for racing. The present factory bikes aren't even 'pure prototypes' either as they are limited to a formula with a maximum number of cylinders, 6 gears, no dustbin fairings etc. Most of these rules were imposed to prevent spiralling costs in the 60s when Honda's 250 had 6 cylinders and 125s had up to 14 gears. Honda quit but the sport continued. It's a shame now that Dorna can restrict the excesses of WSBK that it didn't simply call Honda's bluff. Still, it looks like we might get KR style 'prototype' powered CRTs by 2014 if the rumours are correct. Still need to increase fuel and restrict the ECUs and rider aids though.
