I think you are misremembering things Grendlehop. The tires did not work for all bikes equally or act over a wider range, they really only worked for yamaha the first couple of years until right before Dani was ejected from his bike. Then in 2012 again, they only worked for the Yamaha, except their were serious issues with them on the Honda (massive chatter) and on the Ducat (same old story + chatter) Bridgestone cannot make a wider ranged tire because it's performance envelope would most likely limit it's potential, where as a specialized tires such as the ones that only worked with the Yam (and still seem to be) will give a deeper level of potential. Bridgestone do not develop their tires for Honda or Ducati, and its clear safety is not the reason for the change of tires last year, as it made no difference for Ducati and made it worse for Honda.
