The lower classes always had a single tyre and for as long as I can remember. Dunlop had/has the monopoly, not sure if a single tyre was in the rules or not. The control tyre in MotoGP came in as a result of Bridgestone getting more and more dominant to the point where even Rossi with the overnight special Michelins could not match the Ducati. That was the time when Hopper had regular top 5 finishes on the Bridgestone shod Suzuki.
The though at the time was that the Championship should be about bikes and riders and not a tyre contest.
