OK for the manufacturers that don't have or need sponsorship, but for the private teams taking up valuable sponsorship space.
How about making some proper regulations that actually bring the bikes closer to the real ones and where the regs were in 1988.

And Kawasaki, you didn't quit Motogp because you thought this would be better marketing, you quit Motogp because you were embarrassing and not doing a fantastic job with your GP bike in WSB.

The company that owns Motogp didn't buy WSBK, they bought Infront Sports and Media, Infront Motor Sports are about 1% of Infronts portfolio.
I doubt that during Bridgepoints procurement of Infront WSBK ever entered their minds, the monoplies commision were not interested, yet they were when CVC owned Motogp and F1, which is why Bridgepoint now own Dorna.

Bridgepoints interest in Infront was simply down to the contracts they have in football, seeing as the CEO is Phillipe Blatta son of Sepp, which is why they have so many lucrative football deals. The question is how long will Infront partner WSB, becuase thats all it is between IMS and FGS.
