Kawi first race just took place at Motegi where Akira Yanagawa crashed out on lap 7. The bike is a 990 cc four stroke bike. If you look through the last few pages of the 12 forum you'll see some threads regarding the new GP bike.
I saw the race and unfortunatly the crash of Akira. Good to see Kawa at GP level.
Can we say that this is a ZX-10R???
So they are running 1000cc four strokes in this class. Just four strokes, or also two strokes? Is there also a cilinderlimit? I tought I heard Honda is running 5 cilinders.
yes Honda is running a v5 and Proton is developing one for next season. The 500 2 strokes are still eligible, and it's probably about 1/2 and 1/2 now. There are weight restrictions based on # of cylinders. Aprilia is running a triple 4 stroke for example.
