Let's hope that some of that technology trickles down to street bikes. That's the number one appeal - from a consumer standpoint - to four stroke GP bikes.

Howcome the announcement did not mention John Kocinski?! Since he was hired (and acknowledged by Yamaha) to develop the bike, right?!

I know there are regulations about the racers not being based on street machines, but does it work the other way and how strict are the rules? Where does one draw the line on what has been copied?

Is this just press release regurgitation? Did MO write any of this? What a load.



4 stroke GP has nothing to do with technology trickling down to street bikes. We already have Superbike and if you want to imagine trickle down exists, go ahead.



The only difference between Superibike and 4 stroke GP is who owns the series. Period.

Right On Brotha!!
 
I strongly agree. And besides, what the hell does anyone need a faster bike than the current crop of GSX-R1000's & R1's for anyway? I've seen countless numbers of squids riding these bikes who have no business on them. Just what we need, 200 horsepower, 300 lbs. street legal road missiles for all the posers to do 150 mph standup wheelies on. Great.

That thing looks down-right evil! And I mean that in a good way. And I bet it sounds pretty cool with that skinny pipe.



I'm looking forward to next year when the 4 strokes can compete. Now I just have to find a way to get my stupid cable company to carry Speedvision...

Where is the movie?
 
I saw a movie of this thing in action on another web site. Will my post get deleted if I put a link of the movie here?
