Would be cool to see all the top speeds. That 337 km/h is very impressive, and yet still not the superbike record there... (339 something by Biaggi, right?)
That is MotoGP territory, brilliant! (Last weekend at Jerez Espargaro's Aprilia RSV4-in-a-different-frame wasn't exactly slow either, keeping up with the full-blown MotoGP Yamaha's and Ducati's...)

Looking forward to the races, it's almost always a thriller at Monza!
