In the MSF course will they teach em stuff like that?

You could have a bike that has only 2 cylinders like the tss rs500gp which is a 2 stroke in a rs250 aprilia frame. And because its so light and the engine produces around 120hp and the bike only weighs 108kg fully race prepped. Its power to weight ratio will far out do any stock 1000cc inline 4 cylinder supersport. And therefore even though it has less cylinders and less power, it will still outrun the more powerful bike easily. Due to its weight.
Its all in the power to weight ratio.
