That seems like a fair call, looking at this past season and recent tests.
If it were allowed to happen, I think that the front of the WSBK field could show their rear tires to much of the CRT field.
I have wondered why the CRT bikes weren't given a displacement advantage (maybe 1200cc) at least for the first few years. Probably lots of factory vs. sanctioning body politics there, huh?
