Nah Kenny Roberts team was severely penalized a couple years back for using some engine parts which was too similar to the same thing on a honda road bike. They were suspended for like 3 races or something.

MotoGP bikes are incredibly hard to ride, they're so much lighter, faster and better handling and braking than superbikes, most can't get the hang of it. Just because you dominate every other motorcycle racing class on earth doesn't mean you'll be very good at MotoGP. This has been proven many times.

I love how it manages to look gorgeous even when only partially built. Nobody designs like the Italians.
