..and sportbikes have a negative stereotype in the US so my feeling is that most big time companies wouldn't want to be associated with sponsoring such deviant behavior in spite of the fact that most people involved in motorcycling have some spare income to through around. And the douche bags are the source of the stereotype. Maybe because I am older now than I was 10 years ago (really?) but I don't remember the douching being so intrusive back then and whether the decrease in US road racing is a directly inversely proportional to increased douching I am not sure but, it can't help.
