DucatiMatty - It does seem pretty crazy giving the V twin an extra 200cc and then adding weight to it. There is a certain logic to giving them more capacity because of the area/volume advantage of smaller cylinders, but once you go down that route you could argue that a V4 has advantages over an inline 4 and the bike ought to have extra width applied to the fairing to make the inline bikes competitive on top end. Once you introduce any form of handicap system to the 1000cc capacity and maximum number of cylinders rule you open a whole can of worms. They might as well use a horse racing handicap and keep adding weights to the winner to try to equalise the field. If a V4 works best, (within the current rules), then that's what the manufacturers ought to produce if they want to be competitive, but of course the point of Superbikes for the manufacturers is to advertise what they already produce.
