Cf Gp9

I think Cagiva also experimented with CF GP chassis back in the 2 stroke era, but abandoned as 2 stiff and chatter inducing - tires are much better now

CF-chassis is novel in the MotoGP, although there were some trials in the 250cc.
I suppose it was Armstrong who tried a CF-Chassis in the mid-80's.

I guess motorcycles are becoming more and more just an engine, two wheels and a seat!
