Despite all the Honda money, Showa isn't as good as Ohlins suspension and teams prefer Brembo brakes to Nissin. The ubiquitous twin spar aluminium frame was designed and introduced by Kobas, then copied by all the Japanese factories, so that many MotoGP neophytes actually think it was a Japanese innovation. There would be no shortage of high spec technological competition without Japanese factory involvement. As has been pointed out, much of their R&D work is simply aimed at fuel economy. Will the next change HRC demands be for it to become an all electric series, seeing as they think the sole purpose of racing is to benefit their R&D? Shuhei Nakamoto recently stated that HRC has no interest at all in whether MotoGP provides any entertainment and the path they've pushed the sport down demonstrates he wasn't kidding.
