MotoGP: FTR Kawasaki CRT bike

Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, unless I've missed it.

I think the new CRT category for MotoGP will be interesting. Its a clever idea and it'll hopefully bring more teams in to the competition for an otherwise dwindling racing series.

Looked atthe article and have no idea what's going on, other than porn for gear heads is still out there. Anybody shed some light or point me in the right direction?

Well it stands for claiming rule team, which is supposed to be a way for Moto2teams and new teams to enter the motogp. Basically it is like moto2, using production-based engines in prototype chassis. Dorna claim it is a cost effective way to increase grid size, but they seem to be saying now they think it is the future of motogp racing. There's alot of discussion out there about this as it seems several of the existing motogp satellite race teams are considering building crt bikes as opposed to leasing factory bikes.

As usual, stoner is being very outspoken on the subject, going so far to say if crt is the future of motogp racing, he's not interested in racing them and threatening to quit. I kinda see his point, i think if they really wanted to cut some cost of motogp racing, quit changing the rules every year, and severely restrict electronic rider aides.

BTW, to the OP, great pics.
