Right. Moto2. The series that mandates the engines from the company that couldn't win the supersport series. Sounds exciting.

He's talkin' about HONDA. They're supplyin' the spec motors for this series - but they haven't won an f'n thing in the 600cc class for a few years...........

Last year Erion Honda and Jake Zemke won the FX championship. Didn't TenKate Honda's Supersport team win the Owner's Cup? It's superbike that they haven't had luck in.
The Moto2 scheme will allow specialty frame and suspension builders the ability to thrive. KR will return to the GP paddock, too. A lot of WSS riders will end up getting rides out of this deal.

Cool

Nothing will ever compair to the 2strokes, sad to see them go. Hopefully this will be a good move, not real sure. At least people will get hired and riders will get jobs.
