“Obviously it's a thing coming from F1 and it seems like it is working there,” said the Honda rider. “It seems like they don't complain about it, but obviously that is a car and not a bike, so there are a lot of unknowns.”
Seven time MotoGP champion Rossi has long favoured a reduction in electronic influence, but even he would want a certain level of assistance to remain.
“It is good to have everyone on the same electronics, but they need to find the right level to remain safe,” said the Italian.
“A bit less help [from the electronics] would make the races more fun. More fight. In F1 they thought it would be impossible, but it was not and now the F1 races are more fun to follow.”
Yamaha Tech 3 rider Crutchlow also likes the idea, but doesn't think it would make much difference to the order at the front of the field.
“I think it's a good idea, but I think you'll still see the same guys at the front,” he said. “The guys that are fast are fast for a reason, not just electronics.
“It's not going to make a guy at the back suddenly win, but it's good for the championship and financial situation - although maybe the leather manufacturers will need to make some parachutes in the humps!”
Gresini Honda's Bautista had a similar opinion.
“If you have the same electronics the races will be more interesting, but you have to see how safe it is,” said the Spaniard. “The most important things for the rider will be safety and confidence to ride the bike.”
