Yeah, it would be possible to homologate a "super go-fast" 999R, but they'd only be doing it for the AMA since they don't have to do it for World Superbike. So again they'd be releasing and selling a homologated bike specifically for AMA, which is just too expensive to do. I've heard estimates of around $4-7,000 per bike of a LOSS that the factory takes on every 749R sold. The light crank costs $2,000, and the Titanium rods are $1800 each, not to mention the Titanium valves, the totally different shock linkage, the Verlicci frame and two-way adjustable steering head, etc. It's a very expensive proposition for the factory to produce a bike like that. And yeah, I think that if the rest of the factories come up with an electronics package as good as Ducati's in World SBK, and they are allowed to run the same displacement I-4 motors as the Ducati twins, it will be very difficult for Ducati to stay competitive. It's good for the series for Ducati to be there and be competitive, so the displacement increase is probably the easiest fix that could be made.
