I suspect this is most of it. As you say, it's essentially the same bike. Marquez didn't need any time to figure out how to be fast on it . . .

It's interesting how Honda is so concerned about the Ducati's power, to the point they've apparently ruined their own engine, but it's Yamaha that's taking the race wins away from Honda.

Yes. Big 3-liter Cosworth in back. Early 60's featured similar cars but puny 1.5 liter engines. Mid-to late-60's cars were fantastic. Lethal though.
