I see where most MOs don't much care and they are right if you are riding on the street. But this is about honesty in advertising. The whole marketing game is the race bike experience and performance. There is also the whole technology one-upsmanship thing going on too. Personally I hate the way they fabricate the weights of the bikes.



Again, be suspicious if the average piston speed goes much over 4,000 ft/min. Yamaha is claiming 4,850 ft/min for their R6 with a 42mm stroke and 17,500rpm redline. Sure! I believe that motor can do it, but so could the Triumph 500 GP bikes in the '60s - for one race.
