I'd sure like to have a team of manufacturer engineers working/tuning my bike!

Increased grip makes it harder to go faster? Then we see that the speedo is fast because of wheel spin?

It's not the fall that hurts, it's when you hit the ground.

Yep,  there's the question of gearing the bike to get the HP to the ground at the limit.  Too low = too much torque = wheel spin, too high gearing and you can't overcome the drag (grip) from the surface and combined with the air resistance from your speed.  The stickier / grippier surface probably forced them to adjust the gearing down.
