I'd like to see how Yam and Suzuki respond also. Wouldnt it be nice to see a contingency war.
Contingency war probably won't happen.
Years ago, the manufacturers of 600cc motorcycles decided not to one up each other too much. That keeps the flow of riders moving between bikes every year. The performance at regional races, a better measure of normal, legal performance levels, has not dramatically increased even though the flow of information would make you think that it does.
So, what Honda's contingency will be, if it will be cash or certificates...we'll have to wait and see.
And even then, Yamaha has traditionally offered a lot of money, but you still see a whole lot of Suzuki's...
