the funny thing here is if dorna caves to honda, then honda obviously is running moto gp. if dorna holds firm and honda goes to WSB then moto gp becomes AMA europe. (Honda: goodbye MotoGP, hello WSB? - Motorbikes - Motor Sport Magazine)
I dunno, could be the ultimate f**k you to Dorna if Honda pull the pin.Honda isn't going anywhere. There is no way Honda is going to forfeit the premier class title to Yamaha. Way too much pride at stake.
people forget (or never knew) that it was Honda that pushed for the four stroke switch. And then the switch to 800's. Why would they want this? Because they are the only ones with the dosh to absorb yet another round of from-scratch development.the funny thing here is if dorna caves to honda, then honda obviously is running moto gp.
If Honda withdraw it opens the door to a lot of factories who dont have the financial resources to battle the giants. Honda pull out, Aprilia, BMW, KTM, Suzuki and Kawasaki could likely rejoin if the rules package made it less exorbitant to compete.I dunno, could be the ultimate f**k you to Dorna if Honda pull the pin.
It would leave Yamaha, Ducati & CRTS.
You could hardly call it the Premier class anymore.
This wouldn't be the first time a team took it's bat & ball and went elsewhere to play.
