Leon Haslam to ride Suter/BMW 1000cc MotoGP bike

Leon Haslam could give his impressions and feedback on the new Suter/BMW 1000cc MotoGP bike in Mugello today. The British rider is at the Mugello circuit preparing for a BMW World Superbike test before he flies off to the Czech Republic for this weekend’s Brno round. And he confirmed to MCN that he might complete a few laps on the 1000cc...

confused

Shouldnt BMW win a WSBK race first before dumping money into MOTOGP? I do agree with kennyqorrie, motogp needs to be more exciting. Im afraid with the lack of "FACTORY' participation its always going to be this way.  But I guess another factory bike wont hurt. But if these factories dont start releasing real parts meaning Honda and Yamaha there will only be Repsol and Factory Yamaha at the front. I never have really understood why teams who know they cannot win get out there and ride around, but I guess any partictpation is better than participation at all. Sure does make for boring races though. Hopefully Super Sic can make good on some of his qualifying positions and get up front to add some "color" up there besides what we see week in and week out.

Why even bother trying to save MotoGP? I reckon it's just run out of steam. Just merge the championships - less travel, lower costs for the teams and factories, and all round lower costs for the organisers. There could be one championship, and race day could run like Moto3, Moto2, WSS, and WSB.

Hate to say it, but I wouldn't miss MotoGP or it's dullard riders one little bit.

In my opinion (not that my opinion matters)...the exciting grand prix racing ended when they stopped the two stroke 500cc grand prix racing...the four stroke era has lacked the battles & cut the amount of riders on the grid because of the phenominal expense of developing & running these engines & the electronics to make them safe to ride...its an absolute joke to have 2 world championship four stroke series & thats the very thing that made 500 grand prix the premier race series...their excuse for getting rid of two stroke racing was because no one sells two strokes anymore because of the emissions, but part of the ruling of motogp is that you can't have a production version of a motogp bike anyway...
