It doesn't matter if the engine is identical in spec if the chassis can't put the power as effectively to the ground. The factory bikes grip better and wheelie less out of corners and that alone can make the difference.
Anybody thinking a factory bike isn't worth 0.2s per lap over a satellite machine is kidding themselves. There'd be no point in Yamaha running them otherwise.
