will MOTOGP consider switch to turbocharged engines in the future (at least 2023)?

many motorsport competitions (auto racing even motorcycle racing) are abandoning naturally-aspirated engines for switching to turbocharged engines for horsepower and performance improvement as well as speed increase. MOTOGP are now thinking of switch to turbocharged engines in the future at least 2023 season as well as engine displacement cut to 700cc to make room for turbocharger. IMO turbocharger can improve also racing spectacle and expecting more overtake maneuvres.

IMO naturally-aspirated engines in car and motorcycle including racing are now going to decline due to increasing interest of turbocharged engines.

the last thing MotoGP currently needs is increasing speed.

The only way they are fitting bikes with turbochargers is if the engine cc is lowered, like they did with F1. Anyone seen that supercharged animal which Kawasaki released a few years back? Utter monster it is, 350 horsepower or something daft like that, 20 bikes like that on track would be carnage.

Can you imagine a motorbike engine with turbo going pop, someone would more than likely wind up dead.
