MotoGp 250 two stroke to 600 four stroke

Does anyone know if these bikes are going to be prototypes like the bigger motogp bikes? There is already WSBK and SuperSport and those deal with production bikes, is it really going to be interesting or any different from those races? If they are going to be prototypes I wonder what all of the manufactures are going to dish out, especially KTM and Aprilia.

Just Curious.

Re: MotoGp 250 two stroke to 600 four stroke

nothing is official or final yet, but IIRC the last press release said that the motor internals were to be from production bikes, while chassis and suspension can all be prototype/aftermarket to keep team costs down. They want more sponsor money to go to the 800cc rather than being spent on expensive 250gp teams.

FGSport (the owners of WSBK and it's sub-classes, incl. WSS) have a contract with the FIM that explicitly states that they have exclusive World Championship status for classes utilizing production based equipment. This creation is in clear violation of that contract. So I don't know what the hell's gonna happen with this new 600 class.

I guess the deal isn't so exclusive, the FIM gave dorna the go ahead, check it out:

Re: MotoGp 250 two stroke to 600 four stroke

lap times will probably still go down. Remember that the chassis and suspension will still be top-spec, unlike supersports, so these things will be missiles.

They will probably sound like F1 cars as well...

Re: MotoGp 250 two stroke to 600 four stroke

I don't have much to add except that lap times are irrelevant as far as close and competitive racing goes. And the 250s are a dang good show.

Yep... This really bums me out. Why get rid of 250's to have yet another 600cc race class? We already have enough of them in all the other race organizations.
