In the past, Hondas always handled rough (to say the least). Yamahas handled better than anything.
Great riders (Hailwood, Spencer, Gardner, Lawson) could win on Hondas despite the bike's violent attempts to throw them off. Honda's one saving grace was horsepower.
There is less power difference today, and less handling difference than in the past - despite any efforts by Dorna to manipulate the result (which I have no real view on).
So, the competition is as good as it's ever been. Although the control tyre always works better on one brand than the rest, it's better than having just one rider with special race-day tyres, and everyone else on rubbish.
