More force needed than MotoGP but for less time
Even if there are 15 corners, the World Superbike ridersuse their brakes 10 times on each lap, the same as for MotoGP, and the total amount of time they are used is also similar: 31.4 seconds per lap for the production-derived bikes, 32 seconds for the prototypes. However, on turns 7, 11 and 15 the length of time the Superbike brakes are used is longer than MotoGP.
The Superbikes, on the other hand, have a higher total load exerted on the brake lever per lap, 39.6 kg (87.3 lb) compared with 32.2 kg (70.9 lb) for MotoGP bikes. Due to a higher number of laps in MotoGP though, the total load from the starting line to the checkered flag exceeds that of the Superbikes by 13 kg (28.6 lb). There is very little difference in the G force exerted by the riders in the two classes.
