@ shamarone i do agree with you on the brakes. carbon disc/carbon brakes are another point that drives the costs up, have little application to road-going products, and did not produce close racing despite being around for 20 years already. look at WSBK as the finest example - even though they also use loads of electronics like motoGP and the disparity of bike performance due to engine configuration, the races are arguably closer thanks to the use of metal brakes. the development costs of metal brakes can easily be recouped from the sales of production version that benefits from the work done in racing, making it more attractive to new suppliers that seek to expand their technology. more suppliers also mean less cost through competition of brake supply.
