interesting perspective...at this level, I honestly feel that it's 90% rider and 10% personal preference - all superbikes are quick.
I lost by three lengths to a bone stock 2011 R1, due to my inability to launch (see thread I put up about launching). Despite what is said about the R1 being the least powerful, heaviest, etc of the literbikes, once I was rolling and at full throttle, I couldn't close the gap.
The industry knows that superbike riders shop by numbers, but in the end you're only as fast as your skill level, and it's better to shop by personal preference.
So info like this, about the "feel" and "character" of a bike, is a lot more useful than dyno numbers.
FWIW, I wouldn't mind if I had to ride a crossplane R1. With Toce pipes, I swear it sounds exactly like the MotoGP Yamahas, and I've heard both in person.
