    Piaggio. Will also be interesting to see how Vinales handles this as well, he left Yamaha 'cos his team mate kept beating him. I don't he has any bridges left to burn

    They seem to sell about the same number of bikes as Triumph i.e. 70k compared to BMW's 190k. Their sales in Europe are declining and their biggest revenue is from India, apparently. Mostly pocket rocket 125cc as there are loads of young people with disposable incomes in the growing middle class. I guess the MotoGP budget is a small price for Piaggio to pay as part of the marketing to their target demographic of aspirational Asians. Paddock passes for Indian journalists, influencers and motor trade executives to grease the channels and the odd brown envelope, no doubt.
