Any word on Triumph trying to get back up to a Factory Level team? Last year I used to love watching Davies riding the wheels off the 675. I hope they can get something back together for later this year or a new start for next year. I also think the rulemakers should give 3 cylinder machines an extra 50cc. I mean if a twin can be up to 850cc, why can't a triple be 725cc?

That brings up a question I've been wondering about since the Duc 848 came out. Why do the non 4 cylinder bikes always have to move up in capacity and the 4 bangers have always stayed the same 600cc? Triumph moved from 650 to 675. Ducati moved from 748 to 848! Really?! That's a whole 100cc jump for them just to keep up with the 600's. It's not like the 600s advanced big time in developement like 1000s in superbike(less engine mods in ssp) They're still using '09 R6's to compete. Try that in superbike and get lapped lol. The FIM should keep it the way it's set up now and leave it be. I think the only difference from my '05 cbr 600rr and the current '11 cbr 600rr is 10bhp....if that. Not to long ago, Ducati's superbikes where 851's. I believe AMA Pro is the only place the middleweight Ducatis compete. Probably to add more manufacturers than just Yamaha and Suzuki. The FIM still won't allow twins over the 750cc limit for ssp competition. IMHO the middleweights(supersports) are all about the handling and not so much the motor and the heavyweights(superbikes) are about the power and bike developement. Look at moto2 high development in the chassis and no developement in the superstock moter whatsoever, but the racing is good. So if the twins and triples get to keep moving up in capacity, so should the 4 bangers.
