It may not be apples to apples as F1 is an order of magnitude larger buisiness than MotoGP (and thus can be more "take it or leave it" with rules), but one could extrapolate that TC will be banned in MotoGP right around the time 90% of the bikes at your local stealership have TC.
Is this all supposition based on cooincidence? Possibly...but it makes a good discussion topic either way.
