Two stroke V4's after the Golden Era

The 500cc V4 two stroke made by Christian Polverelli.
We all know that the days of the 500cc V4 two stroke are long gone in the GP's but still there are efforts to keep these beasties alive. I know of four projects, from backstreet builds to a MotoGP manufacturer who are making new versions of the most exiting motorcycle that was ever on this planet.
First we have the two wellknown projects of
Suter and Ronax
Than there are two other much smaller efforts of  
Christian Polverelli and Laurent Astier
All these projects are works of art and it shows that people all over the world still really like 500cc V4 two strokes, I hope there are more projects to come so we keep the two strokes alive!
