<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (povol @ Jul 30 2008, 05:41 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>Is that not exactly what we have now in AMA.A 600 spec bike,no internal mods,DOT tires,30-40 bikes in the field.Just about anyone can go SS racing if they want to.A stock 600 with a good tune and good setup can be had for under 10k.The rider makes the difference in SS racing since all the 600's are within 1000ths of each other rolling of the showroom floor.I will tell you one thing that excites me about 600 Gp bikes,it will put young riders on level playing field with the Europeans since they will have to cut their teeth on smilar equipment.

Peak power regulations via power-to-weight ratios is sort of spec. All I care about is the wide distribution of competitive equipment. Spec helps distribute equipment because it lessens the impact of manufacturer run teams.

I'm definitely excited about the new 600cc GP class. Around 120hp with no traction control? This should be a field day for Australians and Americans. This new GP class is going to attract a ton of talent if DORNA stick to the plan and avoid tweaking the results to get key market riders into GP.

The new 600 class is a good thing here cause us Americans are going to be dealing with Gaytona Superbike which will be a 600 class bike. SO I can see how we may have some americans in the support classes in the GP's but if you look even now we have never really had Americans in those support classes so I don't really know that the paralell will make much of a difference.

yea and they will do 250mph down the straights. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

i think this means we are stuck at 800.. for safety and to still be a number ahead of the 600.

Wonder how well the bike will be balanced if it has left side drive and the exhaust on the left as well

edit

I havent dont much research into it and i don't know much about the bikes technically. I don't understand how a 600cc bike is going cost less than a 250cc bike. Can someone explain this to me?

Gracias

"If it ain't broke don't fix it. If the people in charge really think they can really fill a grid with four-strokes when we can't even get close to a full grid in Moto GP, They've got another thing coming. The FIM really need to get involved in this - they're letting someone else run the sport for them."

600cc bikes are going to be spec oriented. Currently privateers are paying somewhere around $500,000 to run customer equipment (not even as good as factory stuff). Ezy said the sport needs to provide more equal equipment to privateers for around $100,000.

Basically they are nixing/reducing development.
