It seems your expectation is sound, perhaps due to the rider, or is it due to the Forward engine being essentially the current Tech 3 mill hobbled by Dorna ECU, versus the RCV satellite mill (less pneumatic valvetrain) also hobbled by Dorna ECU?.... meaning the Yamaha "open" bike may be a better base engine ? I noticed you didn't mention Colin specifically.
I am happy to be here in this country and to know that the sport here is also important because the crowd here know about bikes and the riders, no? So they so much love. So it's important that this sport can grow up in this country... ~ Whorehay Lorenzo
