Talent fan you seem to be 180deg in the wrong direction, Dorna introduced production based engines in the class to prove to the manufacturers that they don't need them, CRT was just the name and to stop the likes of Aprilia putting full works bikes out there but gain extra engines and fuel, simply bypassing the MSMA. Now that risk will go there is still nothing to stop any team fielding a production based engine, just now they don't have the worry of spending over 100k on an engine and losing it for 20. Not that it would happen a bit embarrasing for a manufacturer but the threat was there. It forced Nakamoto to have a swipe at Aprilia stating that it could be done better than that and prove it. The manufacturers also must be slightly embarrassed that nearly all spending a fraction what they do can get to finish on the same lap after 70 miles. Word is that Honda are struggling to sell their bikes and some worried about the Yamaha package.
