Progress_2.jpgThese graphs from French bike mag MotoRevue show thirty years of superbike development from 1978 to 2009. In case you don't speak French, the vertical column on this graph is horsepower while on the one below it's weight. The blip in the data round 2007 is due to the introduction of Euro3 emissions standards, the necessary exhaust catalysts boosted weight and reduced horsepower. As you can see, that's no longer an issue.>
