Until we get past what we've been indoctrinated with things cannot change. We are conditioned to believe that the bikes must be the most exotic and the fastest, and the most technically advanced. Really? Why is that then?
Until we realise that what we are really tuning in for is the RACING (i.e. the contest of man against man, doing battle to come out on top in a fair fight. Sure the bikes are cool and we like them too - but really they are just the tool the rider uses to race with. Yes it needs to be fast enough and handle well enough to be exciting, but that's been available for decades.
Right now MotoGP is trading all the real key selling points of racing for the ones that don't matter and which hurt the sport to keep the Mfrs happy (technology that actually reduces the human element to a side-show). I think a change in fans perceptions may be in order?
