Seeing as Honda's political power sways Dorna in the rule-writing, it can be no surprise that their bikes (with 2 very, very good pilots of course) are in the ascendancy and likely to stay there. With a 5-engine limit, a fuel limit and NO rev limit, this creates extremely tight constraints that take a LOT of resources and MONEY to maximise. In other words, only Honda can AFFORD to spend enough. So they have a BIG advantage. I agree with Prof-x - it may be entertainment, but MotoGP isn't genuine competitive racing. The only competition is between team-mates on the same kit, as there's too many tiers of relative performance thru the field for it to be proper racing.
