With the gearing in the FSAE cars and some good slicks, they'll outperform a bike with the same engine in acceleration and braking due to the low CG, and once the tires are hot, they'll hold up to 1.5G in the corners.
Take your Ducati to an autocross event and you'll be lugging around in first in the tight stuff.
Now that's only up to maybe 100mph, when you start running out of gear, so it's best to stick to the twisties.
I'll have mine geared up a bit more for a better highway RPM...
Running out of gear at 100? I'd have 3 more shifts to make after 100.
These bikes' quarter mile times average around 10 seconds flat at about 135.
Autocross isn't a motorcycle event unless you're a motor officer with an 850 pound cruiser. And, yes, that's done in first gear. Granted, you'd win in the tight twisties, but on a course with decent straights, it might be a tossup.
