Skill will do that, not a faster bike. All a faster bike will do to an inexperienced rider is hurt/kill then at a higher velocity. The last track day I did (its been a few years) I saw a Ninja 250 consistently run faster times than some of the 600cc bikes and a 1000cc bike.

To go fast on a bike the equation is:

90% Rider
5% Bike
5% Luck
