While Moto2 and Moto3 are set to prosper, MotoGP languishes. The grids are small, with just 17 bikes forming the official field. Of those, there are nine “factory” bikes and eight “satellite” entries. There are only four makes represented, with Honda, Yamaha and Ducati fully committed, and Suzuki running one bike out of a significantly smaller operation. Kawasaki is no longer involved, having switched its focus to World Superbike, along with Aprilia and BMW.
