Poll: How to REALLY spice up MotoGP

Dorna has announced some concessions to the factories by scrapping CRT bikes in 2014 and ditching the idea of control rider aid software. But what do you think would REALLY spice up the spectacle, and turn MotoGP once again into a guaranteed great view? For today only, you're on the Dorna board and you've got five votes to cast in favour of...

I for one hate it

When they change the rules all the time, but if they listen then maybe they'll hand the sports focus back to the people who watch it. As some have said, open to any tyre manufacturers, no electronics etc is the way to go. But maybe to stop these pointless 'add CRT then remove it because its pointless' motions, I don't know why they don't make money on previous incarnations. Why don't Honda sell to the satelitte teams for a cheaper cost a RC211V which is lower spec admittedly but it won't be hard to get that upto race pace to match the newer ones. and leave the factories on a RC213V to help develop what they do to develop? Its also not really that much different from running lower spec sataliette bikes atm anyway? Why sell a RC213V at €800,000 when you could sell a RC211v for say €400,000 and make the racing more fun not profitable? Or another idea, if they took a leaf out of WSBK book they used to sell the factory bikes to the privateer teams the year later so it would always be competitive?

Crap options!

What about removing carbon brakes? - This would make a big difference and as they dont have a commercial application make sence to remove.  Also a big cost reduction...

if dorna want to make moto gp more superior to wsb now that they own both this wont happen but would creat a new market. superbikes back to 750cc fours 1000cc twins. new yamaha r7's new zx7r  vfr 750 or a honda sp3 might increase bike sales. And so that your bmw s1000rr and ducati 1198 dont go to waste you could just use them for super stock like it used to be in late 90s early 00's

Better coverage

Better TV coverage - Globally. If you aren't in the UK or Australia the TV coverage goes from unbelievably bad to zero. In the US we are stuck having to shell out large chunks of cash to the MOTOGP website for a streaming service that is totally useless. Theres a huge number of people that would watch if they could.. Bring back tobacco and alcohol sponsors along the big bags of money that come with it. If you want racing on the cheap then go watch BSB

a couple of simple things,  add points for every finisher; I feel sorry for the ones at the back. make the numbers on the bike clearer- and the colours/designs on the rider/bike; this would make it easier for spectators to follow (they do move quite fast you know).

They should be able to try any experimental set up they like (that is the point of Motogp isn't it?)  This wouldn't help Motogp, but anyone want to see Rossi on a WSBK?

moto gp

Lets have a compulsory rear tyre change like tt bikes. Unlimited fuel. What about factory bikes having a small bottle of nitros equivalent to one press per lap but can use it whenever they want and crt bikes having a bottle twice the size of factory issued bottles? Might spice things up.
