The modern MotoGP anyway is a development blind alley, and NO USE really as a development tool for Mfrs, EXCEPT in MotoGP. If they say that it is, it has to be a big fat lie IMO.
Why do I say this?
1. Pneumatic Valves (no use anywhere else)
2. Very High rpm motors (ditto)
3. Carbon Brakes (ditto)
4. Electronic systems that adjust for a specific lap at maximum speed (within the fuel limit - DITTO)
I'm sure there are more examples. All these things have in common is the fact that away from the track they have no commercial & practical application on a motorcycle.
So, why don't the Mfr's agree to ban them as they serve no purpose? The only answer can be because by retaining them HRC /Yam hold unassailable advantages with their resources that they want to keep. Without them, they KNOW a CRT could compete, and take away their headlines.
