How thick are you?
There is no criticism in my post. Simply stating that as usual there will be some new riders to contend with. Unfortunately, some of those riders will be on bikes that are potentially a lot slower than the proto bikes from the factories. For the 'old hands', knowing their situation, this won't be a problem.
The RSV4 is obviously a fantastic bike, if any of the jap manufacturers made a bike with a $5-10K premium over their current line up, I don't doubt it could be a match for the Aprilia. No slagging involved, just stating the different philosophies of the two types of 'business'.
The lease cost of the RS250 of over 1million was what brought about moto2, If the Japs don't want any part of CRT for whatever reason, then it's feasible to see a stranglehold on motoGP by Aprilia as well.
Currently, there is clearly only one CRT bike (brand) that is within reach of some of the factory machines and I can't see that changing in only one season.
Before you criticise, make sure you understand what you've read. Talk about Italians blowing their bolts early!
btw, if your boyfriend was actually capable of riding the ex-winning ducati towards the front, then you know your opinion about CRT would be somewhat different. Bloody hypocrites you Italian loving english, let's hope it's not another 35 years before you can actually celebrate something significant.
