@ nealio The thing is - factory prototypes demand the sort of money that isn't there. Anyway - the Japanese full factory bikes use pneumatic valve engines while the CRT's and new Honda motors will not. Espagaro alone proves that a much cheaper engine and motorcycle can be fast and provide the potential for excellent racing. Ezpeleta has been trying to point out that a grid-full of bikes like Espagaro rides could be great - fill grids, attract teams and sponsors, and competitive racing. We should all be happy for the field to lap a couple of seconds slower in order to achieve this. A sensible rev limit, banned pneumatics and restricted software and sensors would make the series more affordable and more competitive IMO.
