Why aren't radio communication allowed in MotoGP?

In MotoGP, radio communication isn't allowed primarily for safety reasons. The intense focus required by riders on the track makes it risky to include another variable, like incoming messages. It's also about preserving the purity of the sport, ensuring races are won through skill, strategy, and in-the-moment decision-making, not external coaching. There's a belief that allowing radio communication could make races more about team orders than individual skills. Lastly, MotoGP is a spectator sport, and the absence of radio communication makes it more unpredictable and exciting for fans.
