Just a couple of observations:
The fastest guy in the middle of any corner on the track is .. Jon Rea.
Sykes has a very Casey Stoner-like corner entry technique in that he is very, almost out of control, fast as he runs the Kawasaki into the corner. Then after a nano-second of heart in your throat panic, he bangs the bike over and is on the gas earlier than almost anyone else.
Chaz Davies also has huge corner speed.
Guintoli and Melandri--former 250 riders--are also very hard on the gas from the apex of the corner--it's incredible to watch.
Stood and observed while a crew tore a Panigale down to the "frame" to do an engine swap. Ducati won't be racing this bike in the Suzuka 8 Hours. Ever.
