    I'm surprised that they have opted for 765cc seeing as there is a perfectly good 675cc motor and that that current Moto2 is 599cc.

    Marketing? Getting closer to MotoGP in performance, making the step easier? I don't know, but there is likely some thought behind it.

    Maybe now the jump from 250 to 765 is a little big. 250 to 600 was already a big step, and bigger than the old jump from 125s - 250 2-strokes. Not that the guys dont have the talent. Think of it as Ninja 250 to GSXR750. Maybe Moto 3 should be 400 inline 4. Racing would still be epic! Or they could use the new Ninja 400 motor.

    Yes, 400 or 500 twins would be good for the smaller class, I think.

    Either would be good work and if tuned to make 60bhp would be about right and not too much power to make the the racing less exciting :) I think current Moto3 bikes are 45-50bhp
