Best literbike engine bragging rights

No one is absolutly sure at the moment . ( well we know its not Harley lol) Yes WSB is 1000cc but the engines are limited to stock metal rules ect . Now come 2012 with MotoGP allowing production based engines to go all out with the only restaints being a maximum bore of 81mm . The engineers will be looking on not what the bike can do at a stock level and go from there. Its a case of what engine can you get the MOST horsepower out of AND hold up for the full race distance . The teams being private can use ANY brand . So let the best brand win . No BS, no brand loyalty . Just who is the best period !

you'll never get a "best" engine. All engines are designed to something well and scarfice something else. The zx10r for example are great top end and decent mid range but ball sucking low end. The cbr has unreal mid range and ok top end. Yamaha supposely just control. Suzuki is more balanced than the zx10r engine. I think the most important factor though which I can't answer is reliability.
