The electronics are a huge factor!! The difference over they years is the ratio between the rider and the bike. Way back when JB had it right 80% rider and 20% bike. Now it is something like 65% rider and 35% bike.But first and foremost, Honda can put millions into the electronics and as the result they can make the most power with the allotted fuel. Remember Rossi barely finished the race. Which means Yamaha is at the very edge, while Honda has room to spare. The throttle control has been taken away, leaving the electronics to master accelerating out of a corner, and right now the people with the most engineering dollars has the advantage.
