Yes, mpg IS an issue - but MotoGP is not the place to address that issue. They use thousands more litres in their Transport, Flights, Hire Cars etc. There are far better ways to develop fuel economy strategies than MotoGP. A powerful road bike probably spends less than 0.1% of its run time at anything like full throttle. Also spends 99% of its run time at WAY below max revs, & where it makes fraction of its peak power. So what is being developed on a high-rev race engine, being used totally differently to any real-world application can ONLY mean its of use to gain a racing advantage. I bet its as much use a chocolate welding torch for anything else. It's all a big con, and a smokescreen to distract fans from the reality. Just like politicians do - they create a furore about somethig emotive and insignificant, to stop voters concentrating on the real issues IMO.
