Major changes in WSBK rules

Article in MCN stated that Dorna wants to make WSBK for all intent a Bone stock motorcycle.
The Super stock 1000cc class will be eliminated being that this is what the WSBK class will be .
MV agusta ,Honda, Yamaha will love the new rules as now they would be competitive in contention for race wins and WSBK title from day 1. This will kill R&D , yes MV would now be winning races but being the under dog working the F4 from its original 140hp to the F4RCs 212hp and the best bike MV has ever produced. I see Hondas hand in this, in F1 auto racing Honda cant compete and in Motogp Honda has been suffering . Now the CBR1000RR could be competitive with no R&D cost. If Honda didn't have marquez they wouldn't have won a race all year,
Even though I root for MV Agusta I do not want to see them or any manufacturer get a title buy dumming down the performance .

When do these rules apply? Beginning of 2018/2019/2020?
Last time I heard about these kind of changes they were talking about 2019. Rather have it seen by 2018 though cause its a boring championship.

These new changes have both positive and negative points.

Dorna is embarrassed that WSBK lap times are very close to MotoGP.....A lot of this has to to do with keeping "Production Based" racing in its place.

I used to be I just dream about it.

Historically the cheapest and closest racing is Bone stock or Full tilt modified. When rules become half assed that's when big factories spend a ton of money trying to engineer there bike around the rules. Unlimited modified end up being cheaper as there is no minimum homoligation rules forcing factory to build 500 ..special... bikes. Just 4 to 6 bikes for 2 man team and they are done.
Bone stock is also a cheap class for obvious reasons lol but then No R&D to better the production bikes for you and I to purchase
