A 200cc advantage would be one thing . . .
. . . would be one thing if they were using a water-cooled DOHC motor, but since they're using an air-cooled pushrod motor that's inherently less efficient they get to have a larger advantage.

Less efficient engine layouts get displacement advantages in all sorts of motorsports racing, why does everyone act like it's cheating when Harley/Buell does the same thing? Why doesn't anyone cry foul when four-strokes are allowed you use twice the displacement as two-strokes when it is obvious the four-stroke is an overdog at twice the displacement?
