lighting 168lbft @ 495lbs

kawasaki h2r 300hp 115lbs @ 476lbs

honda rc213v over 215hp over 100ftlbs @ 352lbs
we arent talking about a cbr1000 here, im talking about a 188000$ gp bike that you can ride on the street

not all races are in a stright line,
the honda would dominate around a circuit.

i understand the current lithium battery tech Will be improving at a min 35+%, not sure whats going on with the superior brushless motor tech stuff though,

think this fullsize stuff is still using old brushed technology?.

200 HP and 168 Ft-lbs doesn't sound great at first glance. Consider this these power #'s come on instantly so these #'s are probably the average power #'s from 50 RPM to 18,000 RPM. These are huge average HP and Ft-lbs numbers compared to any production bike, with the exception that they can only be sustained at full power for just a few miles before the 30 min tank refill time.

Why would you even want big torque in a motorcycle?

I'm not much of a 2 wheel guy, but a guy I work with has a 1000cc Kawasaki and he says he can't use full throttle under ~120mph due to lifting the front tire. And the bike is geared so tall, 1st gear is good for about 90mph. So that tells me that it has maybe too much torque and either the engine could be smaller or the gearing could be taller.

I guess it's a good problem to have :D And as he points out, it's already way too much to ever be able to use this side of a road course, so there's no point in modifying it.

Pikes peak is not a good example, the change in the air density top to bottom is only going to skew a result towards the electric bike.
