To add to bsess' excellent point.
Gigi made the Aprilia race teams world beaters with only Piaggio's money to support it. After the market crash, preceeded by the scooter market crash in Italy, Piaggio wasn't exactly swimming in cash all those successful years Gigi had with them. He knows how to get the right money, to pay for the right parts, and guide development to optimize available resources.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity
