4 strokes in GP

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread


New rules that could allow MV back in GP in 2002. The bike has to be non-production, in other words an F4 variant won't be allowed. But as I read MV wants to race in the Grand Prix, where they made their name.

Very interesting. Of course the F4 has little or nothing to do with any 4-stroke GP Bike MV might campaign. Unfortunately the rules as proposed allow oval piston bikes with a slight weight handicap. In other words If you ain't Honda, forget it. To bad really. It would have been just as easy to say cylinders have to round or call an oval piston 3cyl the equivalent of a 6cyl which was the whole idea of the oval piston to begin with. To get Honda around the 4cyl limit on GP machinery and build a 4cyl that acted like a 8cyl. Regards, Scott Rothermel
