So true...as it now stands, 600's are way more practicable on places like Jennings, Kershaw, VIR north and south, Talladega and other tracks...no where to "unwind" a liter bike like Road Atlanta. I don't have the stats but don't 600's now make more power than liter bikes in the not so distant past?
What is funny is that I can remember my '75 Honda 550 Supersport that had what I thought was a ton of power....prolly had like 55 bhp. My bone stock '06 R6 prolly had 110....double.
There are limits and I think that for the 600's that top of the mountain is fairly close for streetbikes. You are never going to see 175 bhp in a 300 lb. bike that sells for $9k.
