WSBK » Tom Sykes - Q&A

Very nice read. Tom raises a very valid point about evo. The BEST riders want to go FASTER and faster. (Kinda what I said the other day about wanting to see records, wanting to see them go faster...) To do that they used to go to motogp. But now it is no longer the best riders who graduate but the most well-sponsored... so wsbk got faster and the motogp fraternity,teams, riders and fans threw a fit. The world of PAY RIDERS created a need for wsbk bikes to get faster in a sense.

WSBK » Provisional WSBK entry list revealed

Rsmick You often go on about the level of the kwak, prilla and bmw. But do you really think honda (who, at one stage were running a motogp swing arm and electronics pack from HRC) and Ducati are that far behind in terms of the level of kit they're running? Even crescent are running the ohlins kit found on motogp bikes, where kawasaki are running showa (and no, I don't think that they are standard). I do think though that aprilia will struggle in 2015. BSB they were nowhere, there must be a reason they're not run in SSTK.

@ BikeWatch No, I don't think they are anywhere NEAR the stoc items. BUT, TECHNICALLy, if you have the dosh, you can build one.. CLose-ish... Ok, maybe not, but I like lying to myself. @ RSmick One should not assume.. I hate electronics. Strangely I think electronics, if anything, could be removed from the series. I actually, in a small way am FOR the series' reset. As long as they have a "clean sheet" in som easpects. I still think, even in evo spec, that the top guys now will be top then...
