Tyres provide the biggest influence in overall performance. With a single tyre supplier, that influence is gone. Therefore, it's easier to judge which is the best bike.
With a spec bike, the biggest variable in performance is the rider (in theory anyway), which is not the point of motor racing. That being the case, under a spec series, it would become a true riders series, right? Wrong. The riders c'ship would be diminished. The riders are always riding under similiar conditions, which would only prove who is the best rider under those conditions. If you want to create a true riders title, you and I could brainstorm a harder competition than MotoGP to see who's the best rider. Do you get what I'm saying?
