Post Moto3: Honda NRS250 Japan Test | Video

In 2012, the all-new Moto3 class will replace the 125cc MotoGP class, which will be limited to a single-cylinder 250cc four-stroke engine.

Not many tests are reaching public eyes, but Honda Racing Corporation has releasing some footage of their tests with the NRS250 (Next Racing Standard) at a Japanese test circuit. This YouTube video shows the NR250 bike in action.

With the move to Moto3, there will be no more two-stroke World Championship races. The 2012 season will see four-stroke machines across MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3.

As for specs, the 250cc motors in Moto3 will have a maximum bore of 81 mm. Each engine should last for three races minimum and cost not more than 12000 ($18,500 USD). Also, each chassis manufacturer if required should be ready to supply a minimum of 15 riders.

In 2012, Moto3 will join Moto2, which debuted this year. In Moto2, 600cc 4-stroke Honda spec engines replaced the 250cc two-stroke race bikes.

Well, at least you can still race the 125,s in club events. If someone would get real aggresive and provide parts needed (I mean Fab, or Foundary - Forge) to continue to race these bikes. That person or outfit would corner the market for such bikes.

On the other hand. Personally the World GP series should have just made the 450's the power plant of choice. Nevertheless the things are going to be very pricey. More then any 2 stroke.
