Audi, you listening? Right there you could save millions. Buy a few WSBK spec Kawasakis, paint them red and you will probably finish closer to the podium in 2013.
Pretty flippin sad, eh?
As of right now, the 2 Honda and 2 Yamaha factory bikes are going to leave the rest of the field like they are standing still. IMHO
Soooo... the world superbikes and the CRT's aren't much different in performance. Still don't get the point of the CRT's, aside from adding bikes and riders to the grid, they are just expensive fancy machines that are no better than a WSBK. If MotoGP is headed the way of CRT's then it may as well just dissapear.
