Who really killed the once wildly popular 750cc machines? Reagan or Suzuki? Tariffs or a bike that's hard to compete with?

NASCAR is WWF on 4 wheels...redneck racing...



I mean who ever heard of allowing someone to bump the guy in front of them and causing a 185 mph crash just to pass? "Hey, they were blocking me!"

You get extra points for being nice, Seraphiin...



NASCAR is sold out because there are a LOT of guys named Bubba in the USA who want to go see fat old men race "stock cars", in a circle...with pushrods no less.



Motorcycle racing makes NASCAR look like a kiddie car ride at the county fair...no fat old men...athletes in action.

Default Re: Prediction: the twins are history...

I will bet that Formula Extreme, as we know it, is over...just like the twins. There is no way that twins will be competitive with the 1000's IL4...no way. Which I think is kinda sad.

The well massaged Superbike twins are a second or two faster than the Formula Extreme bikes, but that is comparing apples and oranges.

If those V-Twins are so superior why Nobody is racing them in Moto GP? Not even Ducati.

Given same displacement and some time for development Fours will dominate Twins.

Now what we have in British Superbikes and to some degree in 03 AMA is Superbike spec Twins racing against 1000 Supersport Fours.

Given same displacement and same tech rules ,modifications etc Twins would cease to exists in big bore motorcycle roadracing.
