Can't help but think it gets a bit like moped owners racing each other 30 31 or even 32!!

It was never about ultimate speed for me, plus so many american  YouTube's have such irritating accents..

I still think these clowns jumped to wrong conclusions,

just think about quarter mile acceleration, is that MV going to hit low 9s , i dont think so

Yes but you Would hope the Gen3 midrange grunt would have stomped that 

must be a weight and gearing thing

Racing up to sub 100mph speeds is pretty pointless on the Hayabusa..... Plus in a 'pick 'X' gear roll on race, with the gearing differences for 6th, the MV would be closer to peak torque, while the Hayabusa was still below it. Then we switch to a 3rd gear pull and the MV would be over peak torque and coming up toward peak power, while the Hayabusa managed to get through peak torque and maybe up to near 8,000rpm-ish.

Knowing what mine is like, it doesn't start getting really fun til into 8k. The Hayabusa is definitely not an all-conquering machine, without any faults or weaknesses, but these divs are just setting it up to look stupid.

Lighter bike, lighter rider, shorter gearing..... you'll more than offset the 40ish HP difference
