The lap times were an average of four motos with four pro/int riders on the bikes, all four laps of all four motos counted towards the total time that was then divided by 16. It averaged out to 1/2 second faster than the other bikes. That information is a little too much for the attention span of most readers, I feel. The chart gets the job done.Sorry for the crayon drawings, my art director likes them. Crayons that is. But sometimes on deadline he does act like a monkey.We test the bikes stock like you can buy them from the dealer. We sometimes test a lot of the modified stuff but do not have the time or resources to repeat the tests with modified bikes as it is pretty involved to rent tracks, get quality test riders and run motos. I suspect the lap times would get higher on the Yamaha if it were modified as the bike would likely become harder to ride (Yes, it would be faster and hit harder with most aftermarket pipes) and slower when ridden by a group rather than an individual who might want this type of performance. And loud pipes and the riders who ride them suck monkey balls. Stock bikes are amazing at suiting a variety of riders (like our test riders) and that is why we mostly heap praise on bikes, they are all really good.Considering you got a comparison that cost over $20,000 in expenses (my guestimate) for a lousy $6, you ripped me off!Below is a chart for you.I’m pretty sure this will give you the info you might be looking for.
