Actually Honda did give Gresini a full factory bike for Simoncelli.
If you saw on here when Crash reported HRC statement for 2012 they signalled a change in who would get factory spec machinery for this year. HRC have said that for the first couple of races ALL the Honda bikes would be identical spec and from then on with the exception of Repsol other teams would be given updates based upon their performance & results when the parts became available.
Essentially if Bradl for example on the LCR flies the LCR gets updates in line with Repsol, If he flounders updates are unlikely.
The only exception to this was for Simoncelli who being employed direct by HRC and not by Gresini was guaranteed equal machinery to Repsol
