with cheating you can ride up front as we seen for years.
Not different now.

is it so strange that a 1000cc championchip has 1000cc engines.
i always ask myself hat the F*ck does a 1200cc here?
If you want to cheat then make your own competition, but dont compeed in a 1000cc championchip.

Take that fake bike out of the championchip!!!!!!
only in italy 1000cc=1200cc and its rubbish!!!!
Kawa aint doing any better, cant they change the rule and make the bike 20kg less?? all is possible here right. even cheating!!!! still cheating, always cheating.

(sigh) In the interests of making the championship available to a wide range of engine types (twins, triples and fours) the rules are set out to enable a twin cylinder engine compete with a 4-pot.
A 2-cylinder engine CANNOT produce the SAME power as a similar sized 4-cylinder engine. Hence, the dispensation for differing engine configurations.
It's not cheating if it's written into the rules.
3-cylinder engines are allowed 1100cc but there aren't any (now). I suppose you'd say Triumph would be cheating if they were to enter an 1100cc triple?
I don't see anything wrong with these limits if it results in close racing (which it does).

I don't suppose this will make the slightest difference as this thread pops up all the time.

@ Still Cheating

Tisk Tisk. So much to learn...

And the Kawa isn't any better? IT'S FIRST PRACTICE!!! And Sykes was running top five for a while, and I guess you missed the 2 opening rounds?

Ducati, Aprilia, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW, BMW, Yamaha, Honda, Aprilia.

Confused? That's the top 10 bikes in QP1 today.

A little over 1 sec covered all those bikes with 0.229s
gap from 1st to 2nd. That hardly sounds like a cheating advantage to Ducati to me, 1 bike out of 10 and no less than 7 manufacturers represented.
