@ Studs No-one says it would be boring, but here's how it'll play out. Dorna decides on (for argument sakes) "Showroom Spec" rules. Before any racing EVER takes place, riders & teams push for the right to change fairings, brakes, rear shocks & tyres - citing safety. Dorna agrees. Teams look at the merits of the manufacturers & we have a grid of 20 ZX10's & Panigales with a sprinkling of other bikes. The ZX10 wins & Ducati homologate a Panigale RR with fully adjustable front shocks, etc. It cleans up the field. Kawasaki leaves. Honda arrive with a $45k RC'whatever' full factory effort. Ducati want 200cc extra. Yamaha, Suzuki, MV, KTM, etc all express an interest, but in stock form can't compete. Dorna allows limited tuning. More tuning is required to equalize, so it's allowed. 15yrs later we have something like the current rules, but now the teams & promoters have forgotten how we got there & can only see how much it's costing. Someone suggests 'stock' would be a good idea ...
