Its official!! 1000cc bikes are back in motogp
This is such good news it deserved its own thread lol. MotoGp bikes will be 1000 starting 2012 and possably 2011 if all the manufactures agree. This was done primarily for 2 reasons . 1st was cost. Its easier to get horsepower from a larger engine therfore you dont have to use as much exotic materials. 2nd with WSB becoming so strong as a competitor MotoGP needed the flare of the tire smoking corner exits . It looks like the dirt traker style is back . Hayden and Spies stock just went upand Rossi can now be lured into a couple more of years of riding .
PS Also on the table is possablity of allowing production based bikes onto the to boost the numbers on the grid
the production based bikes would have to able to run a time within a specified amount of the pole sitter as to not be a danger to the faster riders.
