as much as I like the new fancy electronics that are coming out.... I still want that "old" ish Ducati Desmosidici... ( it is the closest thing to a MotoGP bike you can buy) and none of the manufacturers have done that since the 80's ( RG500, RZV500R, NS400R) what happened to race on sunday sell on monday...... or maybe its just me Too expensive for 16 year old kids to buy anymore. The manufacturers would probably be better off with more restrictive rules on what could be raced - since that would let them put bikes on the street to sell cheaper. It is sort of a trap they are in now where everyone wants the most badass thing out there, so they spend a ton of money making sure they are top of the heap, but it has driven up the cost of a bike to a pretty high level. I know Pro Italia had a Desmosedici for $44k for a while, they must have sold it, but from what I hear, the thing is track only - absolutely sucks on the street and frankly is brutal to handle on the track for most people. Not that I'd turn one down. That is why the new Vyrus might be hot. 600cc full on race bike for not too much money - yes, it is a CBR600rr engine, but people are ignoring that this is a MotoGP bike for the street. Plus hub centered steering for extra kicks.
