Didn't Ducati grenade a lot of motors back in the Foggy days?
Aprilia would be granted 9 I believe for their first year as a factory entry. Rumor is based on Alex Esp usage so far this year Aprilia could hit that 9 engine limit for next year.
I have read that max used 32 engines during his championship season #1.
WSBK may in for quite the decline with no Aprilia, BMW, Yamaha and 8 engines.
