We have had their thoughts and both factory riders said Rip it up and start again.

"So wouldn't you say it makes sense for them to start off with the current bike, get their thoughts on what it does and how they think it can be improved?"

They've come up with that opinion after they've ridden it though haven't they. How do you expect them to come up with it before?
