and from another..

What will the weight limits be? And what happens to those weight limits if Ducatis are racing?
The weight limits are as the current superbike rules, 162kg for four cylinder machines and 168kg for twins, however it can be reviewed. There was an idea to have a higher limit for the EVO bikes but that actually handicaps the EVO machines against the FIM-spec machines. If there are any amendments to weights it will be on a model basis not an engine configuration basis. So if the Suzuki has weight added the same doesn't apply to all four-cylinder machines.

It's the FIM spec bit i wanted to post up so it would seem that is confirmed, they are the same spec, no excuse :-o

On team websites. Hm plant honda has 200bhp worx suzuki has 191. There 2 best teams in bsb at minute
Hanspree tenkate honda has 215bhp not checked any others. From this u can see there not the same specs and something must be different to get 15 more bhp. Check it if u don't believe me!!

Not all the wsb bikes have the same bhp output whether it is honda ten kate vs another honda team or honda vs suzuki, aprilia or whoever they may be.
They are still WSB spec though, maybe not with the same level of parts or experience within the team. I have highlighted articles where i looked it up. I'm not doubting your figures at all, far from it. I am just highlighting the spec that the bikes are made to and what parts can be changed, whether that be engine internals, swingarms, ecu's or whatever else you can think of.

BSB runs to WSB spec currently, but the tyres are different, still Pirelli, but different....that was part of the issues that the wildcards had at Siverstone ie trying to adapt the bikes to the tyres in the limited time available. However you would expect the better funded and works WSB teams to still be putting bikes on track that are more powerful than those in BSB, it is the world championship after all!

200bhp is generally enough power,to do the job,its using that power,or putting to best use,to the ground,useable power,ie,if it spins up and shreds the tyre to quickly its not much use,hence the very expensive and trick electronics to make the power usable ,or the less exotic electronics that cannot deliver the same performance
