    ... will continue to be Hondas until at least 2017.

    But now they're being maintained by a Spanish :shocked!: company.

    I think the CEV has various engines & had been wondering how they we going from the parity point of view.

    Have they worked it out well there, or is there enough difference to not want to do this at world level yet?
    Or have Honda offered Dorna a `financial incentive'?

    Or could it be that the reason stated - consistency for chassis suppliers - is actually the main reason?

    Honda MotoGP engines are generally built and maintained in Europe anyway. To HRC specs and blueprints with no fraction of a deviation allowed. But even the Japanese engine builders for MotoGP engines are based in Europe.

    I believe for at least the first half of the year it will still be the Swiss-Japanese company Goto looking after them... the Spaniards weren't able to get their shit together in time.
    Apparently on those motors, the heads were ported in Japan, although the rest of the preparation was done in Switzerland.
