Assembling the Troy Bayliss Xerox Ducati World Superbike 999...in under 2 minutes

I love how it manages to look gorgeous even when only partially built. Nobody designs like the Italians.

Cool Awesome video...

I would love to have a crew that could slap my machine back together in no time. Then I wouldn't hesitate to hang her out on the ragged edge more often. Here's a question I often ponder...What are the major differences between the Superbikes and MotoGP bikes? (besides the obvious differences in HP and engine displacemnet)

Superbikes are based on production motorcycles. Only allowed to change certain things.
MotoGP bikes are bespoke prototypes, all carbon, titanium and unobtanium. Nothing is allowed to be from a road bike, all is handmade to be the lightest/strongest possible.

MotoGP bikes are incredibly hard to ride, they're so much lighter, faster and better handling and braking than superbikes, most can't get the hang of it. Just because you dominate every other motorcycle racing class on earth doesn't mean you'll be very good at MotoGP. This has been proven many times.

I don't think road parts are not allowed per say, they just suck compared to what is allowed. Otherwise, spot on.

Nah Kenny Roberts team was severely penalized a couple years back for using some engine parts which was too similar to the same thing on a honda road bike. They were suspended for like 3 races or something.
