Wow, moto gp going from 800cc to 1000cc? AND bmw and aprilia is getting in on that? Now that's going to be intresting. Hopefully the new 10r can restore some pride or whatever it will take to get kawasaki back in the moto gp mix. Now that will be REALLY intresting.

I'll see you another goodbye

They went from 500 two strokes to the 1,000's, then down to the 800's and now back to the 1,000's. they fifured out that the 800's were just as fast or faster in some cases as the 1K's because they could carry more corner speed but i am curious as to the true reason they keep flip flopping? when they first dropped to 800's i thought it was for "safety"? and there will be the lonely Zook on the grid this year!!

would it be due to safety and now possibly due to development costs or to attract more companies to enter? im stoked to see how aprilia will do!

as far as I know the 800cc class is a money pit compared to the 1000cc class or 990cc they had.
