Very right. Lacking either more mechanical grip (much larger contact patches) or aerodynamic grip from wings,ducts, v gen, etc. motorcycles run into a physics wall.
So basically either a bigger tire or more pressure pushing down on the present tires. Neither of which seems to evident in any tech info I have seen to date. Seems like a great opportunity.
But at the same time it is this very limitation and the feeling that it gives you when riding that makes motorcycles so very much fun. Just enjoy that electronics are at least making it safer for us less talented mortals to enjoy that 'on the edge' feeling.
