Moto2 next season

Anyone else as excited as I am about the new Moto2 class?

I know there are some die hard 250 guys out there, but for some reason people just don't follow 125, and 250 like they do Motogp...

After actually seeing the new 600's in action at Indy I'm super excited, they sound AMAZING, and I'm looking forward to watching them next year, and seeing them at Indy.

Thanks AM I am very excited about moto2. I bet you see alot of photo finishes next year . with the moto 2 being 600s they would be smart to go back to the 998 status in moto gp and do across the board traction control limits . Up the excitement and keep down the cost

Ithink its gonna be good, needs more than just one engine though, would be sweet with at least Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha engines allowed.

i like the 2 strokes, but i think moto 2 will produce some great racing. i dont know how i feel about the spec engine, although each team can produce their own chassis

In a way it makes sense, With the new leasing system FIM is proposing for teams and manufactures it will keep costs down, while keeping the bikes even and competitive. I would like to see more engines as well, which is sure to be the case. I doubt honda will be the only one.

Even tho they are restricted, they are stupid fast still.

frame or frames

Is there only one frame like with the engines or can the teams develope the frame for stiffness etc? I loved watching the 250's but this will be fun to watch as well.
