It's not all about chassis design. Admittedly it keeps the wheels pointing in the same direction. But more importantly electronics plays the biggest part in the factory dominance. Just read up on the perceived advantage the Honda gearbox has with increased gear change speed as much as 40 mS EVERY gear change, how many gear changes per lap? It also helps with mid corner bike stability, the reason the Hondas ALWAYS destroy the Yamahas on high speed corner exits. Read and understand JLO statements regarding what he cannot do in comparison to the Hondas. The importance of TC and anti wheelie, I HATE anti wheelie, it KILLS the spectacle. All these give the also rans no chance. The Roberts V5 was in the era of when these rider aids were in their infancy. Not that long ago admittedly. Something has to be done, But I don't know what. More restrictions? Development caps? Fuel stops? Two tyre rule? DO FOLLOW OR LEAD?
