& if Biaggi did somehow have 43 engine changes at $2mil, it just reinforces my point about the WSBK rules being spot on. There were certainly plenty of WSBK race winners that didnt have the luxury of 43 engines, yet they were able to beat Max regularly.
If it's true, it also supports the case for keeping the rules as they are & not go closer to STK rules. In stock form the Aprilia has no chance vs the BMW & ZX10. Same with the R1, RC8R, MV, CBR, etc. The freedom to race modify the engines allows them to all be competitive at the same level. If KTM decided to spend the same as Aprilia, they would also run up front ... but would still save vs running MotoGP.
