Interesting discussion. Motor racing has always been about developing technology through competition.
That means periods where one manufacturer (eg MV, Honda or Yamaha) can dominate. In the last 10 years, apart from Stoner winning notably on the Ducati, Yamaha has pretty much ruled.
Although Rossi (or JB, his other mouthpiece) said it's 80% rider, 20% bike, it is still more interesting having the twist to the game.
Personally, I'd like to see a full grid of prototypes, with riders chosen on their riding merits...rather than marketing merits or their sponsorship money.
