    Some say a comet will fall from the sky. Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves. Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still. Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits. Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will
    I sure could use a vacation from this stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit... One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied. Learn to swim!!!

    The SBK has TC and the street version has all the electronics in place to enable TC.

    They cannot afford to race in the premiere MotoGP class. Possibly after they get rid of the 2 strokes.

    If they got rid of two strokes.... i don't see any reason aprilia would get involved with MotoGP with such a huge new concentration on SBK.
    Now.... let's say they replaced 250 with a new 4 stroke class in MGP like 500-600cc's it might give aprilia an opportunity to experiment with another high performance platform from which to experiment with.
    What do you think beau?

    Well...all the major manufacturers race in just about all the series. I think MotoGP is going in a strange direction...800cc premiere class and then the talk about eliminating the 2 strokes - replacing that class with 5-600 would make some sense in the regard that 600 is already a common motor size but they are so close in size I'm not sure what would make the most sense...400??

    I also noticed that the rear brake on the race bike is in a slightly different position (bottom center) vs. closer to the swingarm on the RSV4. Why might that be? Also noticed that the race bike seems to have full floating front rotors...why wouldn't they do that for the RSV4? Also front calipers are different.
