Default S1000rr vs MotoGP Bike?

By most accounts the S1000rr is at least 40 hp short of matching the current motogp bikes, but it is the baddest stock bike on the street...how much of a difference are we talking about between our BMWs and the bikes ridden by Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo?

Obviously there is a substantial difference considering the amount of money riding on the performance of MotoGP bikes under racing conditions, but BMW did a phenomenal job of engineering our machines as well, and I like to think that they are the closest thing (stock) to a race bike.

So what is the big difference?

MotoGP bike weighs about 350 lbs and puts out about 250 horses with super sticky track specific Bridgestones. So really there is no comparison.

40HP?? More like 80.

There is no comparison. Well they both have engines, 2 wheels, and a frame. Similarities end there.

V4 18,0000 RPM motors - (except the Yamaha M1, inline 4)
To give you an example of the transmissions. The transmission in a factory Honda RCV cost $750,000.
Pnuematic valves!
Electronics electronics electronics
Carbon brakes

These bikes are prototypes for a reason. Like nothing you can imagine.

Same difference between a Nascar ride and your average street going Camaro. I.e. everything

The difference is about $1 million dollars and a qualified racing team with finances to keep the bike running. hehe

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing-could you elaborate a bit on the $750,000 transmission?
