Haha Tarzaan people make me laugh when they say that, an opened engine is a new engine. Once a motogp engine is opened the seals are broken, then when it is offered to the FIM again it is sealed and that is a new engine. They can only change the oil and filters. This is also the case in WSS and SSTK, so why not SBK? Simple as the CRT ART are as you say much cheaper production engines, difference is the ART engine has to backed off by 30bhp otherwise it will not last 1.5 rounds. Flamini refused to dumb down his series to what it is supposed to be so all the engines have be tuned to the b********. Take the Teb Kate CRT Gresini engines, they have suffered reliability problems because they cannot change those little things they talk of.
Consider this, Aprilia reportedly spent over 2m on engine changes (reworks ha) for Biaggi alone last year, Gresini spent 2.5m for the lease of 2 bikes, 6 engines and parts from Honda, so which is more expensive?
