What gives him the speed?

Recommended Posts

This is a 240 kg / 530 lb touring bike with 56hp keeping a rapid pace among faster machines around a race track. I see that he brakes later and harder  and also manage to get on the throttle earlier, but it is hard for me to tell how he manage to do this so much better than the others.

The first thing I noticed is, he is really relaxed on the bike and like wise with the controls. He gets his braking done while upright except for a few corners. He also does not let the dragging of hard parts spook him off of his line, so he is also confident. Almost too confident as he was very close to a high side at one point. 

His upper body seems tight at lean which effects his body having a bit of that dirt bike body twist.
