"for a lot of us its about human skill and engineering excellence"
There's plenty of scope for engineering excellence in motorcycle racing without direct factory involvement which is steering that engineering in directions that wreck the purpose of MotoGP (yup, that'll be the racing again).
F1 demonstrates that there are incredible engineering firms doing the development work for factories all the time for a start. There's a long history of the likes of Ford using Cosworth, Lotus etc as one example.
Like F1 and many other racing series - there's no shortage of engineering excellence that could come into MotoGP & might be happy to do so if it was a) affordable and b) not rigged so they haven't a prayer.
