Wow...! So money talks... and the hard work (all the testing preparation/lead up and co-operation with R&D at HRC) walks eh...?

If it's true, then so much for the value placed on long term relationships and allegency... with regards the actions of both Depres towards KTM and HRC towards Helder...

Yep going from the reigning (dominant) champions, to a new (as yet unproven) platform... all for the dollar signs? Well, it's NOT unprecedented is it...?
