The FIM announced at the Jerez MotoGP this weekend that Honda has been chosen over Yamaha as the sole enigine supplier for the>
HondaCup Moto2 class, beginning in 2010. The engines will supposedly be specced to have a little over 150 horsepower at the crank but we could honestly care less.
The FIM has stated the 250cc 2-strokes will be allowed to continue, but none have committed to carry on and we expect them to all drop out just like KTM did after the 600cc rule was announced. Don't get us wrong, we really like Honda. Still, the idea of watching a bunch of inline-4 600cc bikes all powered by the same company makes us wish the apocalypse would hurry up.
