Motorcycle racing news is so cool. You snooze, you loose.
AMA Pro is soliciting proposals for a single source ECU for Super bike racing. Sign of things to come in WSBK or GP?
Honda says NO to standardized ECUs or rev limits. Why spend R&D money they say.
Honda is releasing a 1000cc V4 street model so they can do the submission process on an alternative to the much hated CRT GP bike program. You can buy one for 800k EUROs and have a GP bike. No idea what a street legal one will cost.
Susuki wants back into GP in 2014 but for only one year to see how their two year development of a new 1000cc bike is panning out. Dorna says "kiss our ass",( a little license there) three years or no go. Great way to increase the starting line up.
Laverty says that 2013 will probably be the last great year for WSBK. Thinks GP will dumb down WSBK in order to increase profits from GP. Odd since GP won't stop talking about dumbing down GP it's self. Two dumb series I guess.
As usual I made most of this up by reading 7-8 motorcycle news releases. No links, surfers know how to handle their boards.
