As the engines are equal, the rider's size and the aero package are important in determining top speed. Remember that Elias questioned how Iannone's bike was so much faster than his in a straight line in the first year of Moto2. Elias was fined for running a testing session to improve his bike's aerodynamics to a similar level. It's not just the aerodynamics but also the way the fairing design and ducting aid airbox pressure which helps top end.
