That's what they said when the R6 came out. lol. Hayes still beat out E. Boz's Yamaha with the 06RR (yeah, close...7 points...but still).
I didn't know either but in the sept. RoadRacing World they have an article about the Boulder 749 and it is bored out to take 100mm pistons. No stroking just big ass pistons. And for 08 Ducati is doing an 848 in the 1098 chasis.848's - I didn't know the displacement rule would allow that much for a twin.
