Interesting take on the [s]moto1[/s] Homo1 bike, a satellite bike will be more competitve. I memtion this in another thread, there's no way a CRT bike is going to be competitive against a factory bike. We saw that with the WCM bike back in the early 990 days.



CRT bikes is Dorna the explora's way of getting more bikes on the grid, this is Motogp pinnacle of two-wheel racing not some backyard domestic Series.

He mentioned six seconds. I wonder what the gap really is.

Not sure if it was at Estoril post race test they mentioned that they were lapping about 3 seconds slower than a moto2 bike.

Wow - 6 secs off MotoGP and not even compared with Simo or Stoner and 3 secs off a Moto2 Honda - that's almost like putting a rolling chicane into MotoGP

not sure about the 6 seconds part.



but what i do know is that alex hofmann is extremely impressed with the gp12, he stated that everytime it was near it humiliated his rsv4. top-spec wsbk will be pretty close (especially with the rsv4 chassis) to crt right?

I heard from a very reliable source that the gap was 6 seconds at Mugello - Ducati to Marc VDS Suter bike.

It's hard to know how reliable the 6 second rumor is. I'm sure the source is good, but they don't test under 21L restrictions. The 81mm 1000s are probably beasts without fuel restrictions b/c they make as much power as the 990s, but they have better tires, better brakes, better electronics, and they might even weigh less.



We know that a decent Superbike can run lap times around 1 second from the MotoGP front runners. I doubt the 1000s are much faster than the 800s despite the horsepower advantage so I'm inclined to believe that the Suter Moto1 is a piece of junk. We also have no idea what the engine tuning is like on the Suter. If they are still running the slightly modified Superstocker, it was never going to have a chance. If they were running a more heavily modified engine, Supersport lets say, then Suter might as well throw in the towel.

Yikes. Like Lex said, there are many questions yet to be answered with CRT bikes, but that sort of a gap is daunting.
