number one rule of physics.. a body in motion wants to stay in motion.
bikes are faster when ridden as straight "as possible", higher corner speeds result from 'less' of a lean angle.
as posted above, drive out of the corner is improved as well. Its likely less obvious with all that electronic
circuitry going on in modern bikes. Most folks, no offense of course, sacrifice body positioning for lean angle.
result is lower cornering speed.
now, that being said i do think its a good idea to gauge the limits of said bike as you may have
that ohh shit moment and leaning the fvck out of it may very well save your arse
OP i did see said info posted online recently, not on here. I didnt write it down, but it was less than Marquez's
i dont believe the S1kRRs max is 64 degrees.. thats definitely bullshit, its still just a roadbike
IIRC they've mentioned it at some point in the past.
