@TalentFan I disagree. Ducati has run desmodromic valve gear for decades. Honda and Yamaha built the expensive pneumonic valves because the higher rev limits of the 800s gave the Ducati a power advantage - which partially offset its handling disadvantage. If you only want to test rider skill, you need to a single class rule...same chassis, suspension, tyres, brakes, engine etc. To me, that's less interesting. Fans would still complain that "XXX track doesn't suit ZZZ's style"... Simple. Put them all on Ducatis, no rev limit. That would sort out the riders from the rest.
