re: “Maybe add another 200cc... And if that doesn't work, another 200cc.” re: “Get rid of the restrictor plates, the bike is so down on power it's ridiculous” power is nothing without control. so that isn’t the answer... it's just the layperson’s answer. re: “It looked to me that the WSBK is struggling with power delivery, making shapes and pumping the rear.” what jon touches on is the problem. rest assured there's plenty of power. but it proves out exactly what I said about the forthcoming moto1 bikes a while back, ie. adding MORE power to the moto2 equation will not help things. hate to phrase it this way, but 1199's at this point in their superbike gestation are basically “wobbling CRTs”. the only way to correct this is through testing and homologation, and then MORE testing and homologation. aprilia's frame and V4 engine didn’t exactly set the track ablaze on it's debut in '09 either. spies readily dispatched both bikes.
