The brakes are not the same, not even remotely...one glance at rotors tells you this. The fork tubes may closely resemble the works stuff, but what matters is the internals and like Dennis said those are off the shelf products. You couldn't buy a set of moto gp forks for $184k, and they'd be so far above anything we've ridden that there would be a crash in the first turn bc you can't properly load the front. It's a novelty replica.

RC213V-S however is for public roads, so we had to make some changes and additions to create a roadworthy bike. While RC-213V-S is mostly identical to RC213V, the following modifications had to be made:
Pneumatic valves were replaced with coil springs (although the camshaft gear train remains the same). The seamless gearbox was also replaced with a regular road-going one. These parts are more durable for long term use and were adopted from the readily available RCV1000R open category racing bike.
To meet road laws, RC213V-S is equipped with head/taillights, side mirrors, speedometer, muffler with catalytic converter, license plate holder, horn, etc.
RC213V-S gets upgrades for practicality. Tires, brake discs and pads are new, while the bike’s steering ratio is now wider. Extra equipment includes Honda’s Smart Key, a starter motor and parking stand.

Each part is also processed by hand and machined to the same specifications as RC213V – the highest possible.

RC213V-S adopts these same materials and manufacturing processes.
Its body is fastened together using bolts machined from titanium alloy, further reducing weight. The bolts themselves are coated in molybdenum grease for improved axial stabilization, and are hand tightened without using an impact wrench to torque specifications different from those used for steel bolts.

You aren't very good at reading are you? I said calipers not rotors.

I'm pretty good at knowing that carbon rotors vs steel rotors require a different caliper design though.

R1M is as close to a MotoGP bike as an acura NSX is to a honda F1 car. Sure, they both have v6s of roughly equivalent displacement...but that's it.

An R is ~$34. An RS13 is ~$177k. I THINK that's the full-nuts "customer" WSBK spec machine. A "regular" Ride Smart will probably set you back half of that. It's this regular Ride Smart which is the homologation special you can actually buy.

No joke.

I tested a tuono before getting my fz.. but if the 1100 is as badass as it's being touted, it'll be hard to resist.

Something like 15-20hp over the old 1000 throughout 6-10krpm

They're just concerned that all the other folks who spend $184,000 + TT&L are getting their money's worth

Crazy. My 919 makes 101 HP.
Why bother making it street legal? If I had the cash, I would much rather have the full on GP version that I could only ride at the track. I'd ride my Y2K on the street.

As mentioned previously, the feeling is that Honda hasn't released accurate horsepower numbers.
I agree, there's no way honda would sell this bike, for this much money if it has 101hp.

Probably more like 97 or 98. I mean it IS a Honda.

As what was already mentioned, It's pretty obvious that Honda is playing with numbers (sandbagging) If you will notice the rated 101 hp is at 8,000 RPM the bike redlines at about 13,000 RPM, Are they trying to tell us that it doesn't make anymore power between 8,000 to 13,000 RPM? come on we know better!

Because no one has ever put a rev limiter on a bike ever.

Casey stoner rode the bike at catalunya and said its has even more power than his Suzuka 8hr endurance bike. So there is that.
