Ohlins Road&Track forks VS Superbike forks?

I'm suprised I couldn't find anything on this but other than at least $7000 what is the difference? Also how are the superbike forks on the street?

superbike forks i think are gas pressurised like a a rear shock to keep oil more stable so better damping. think the gas resi is the other tube on bottoms behind & parallel with slider. also bottoms will be magnesium rather than alloy, and on a whole more refined/made to closer tolerances. some models i've seen have fluted main fork tubes etc.

as circled here
