The Gresini bike is Honda's test mule to see if they can get Showa suspension and Nissin brakes up to the level of the Ohlins and Brembo competition. As a result, the team lacks the technical data available to all the others, but even if Bautista started threatening Pedrosa or Stoner, the Honda factory technician attached to the team would simply turn the wick down on the ECU to make sure the San Carlo bike didn't trouble the factory riders. The terms and conditions of Repsol's contract ensure that none of the other Hondas do better than their sponsored bikes in return for the money they put into the HRC squad.
