weight and function.

track bikes dont need push to start as many use the relocation EWS module hardware. Push to start has an additional wiring harness and it is complicated programming inside the ECU.

Makes sense and similarly M2/M3/M4 should come standard w/manual seats :)

Thought if they really want to reduce weight, real race bikes not street, wouldn't the remove the starter and battery and like karts have an external starter?
Many club racer rules have must be self starting.

Even WSBK has the must be self starting rule. These are production based bikes. When you see the teams use a power starter device, it is to keep from running the battery down on the bike. If you notice a rider goes down and he attempts to rejoin the race, he is pushing a button first to try to start the bike, but if that fails, then they attempt to push start it.
