Re: More on Yamaha

There are several important distinctions between SuperBike and GP 4-strokes.

1) Weight limits

2) Manufacturing content

The weight limits for GP 4-strokes is considerably less than for SuperBikes.

The engines/transmissions must not be derived from engines/trannies currently in manufacture.

What this is is a series for the 3/4/5 cylinder 4-strokes to hide from the 2 cylinder SuperBikes.

I don't really think we need more HP or less weight than the R1/GSRX1000 for road use. But if someone is there to buy it--Hey, its a free country!
