That's because in WSBK, BSB, IOM, and other high level racing series the bikes are highly modified negating any differences seen in the showroom. The S1000RR is very popular with street riders and club racers where it starts with a massive hp advantage and no real disadvantage.

A couple weeks ago I rode Nate Kern's '12 S1000RR at Roebling, it was fitted with the latest data logging hardware which allowed TC to be mapped to specific parts of the track down to 3m resolution. It was impressive to say the least. It was a beast with 190+ RWHP yet incredibly easy to ride, here's a write up I posted on the S1000RR forum: http://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/bm...s-s1000rr.html
