Unless you're drag racing, getting beat is not about the motor.
Not long ago I was on a ride and ended up waiting at the end of the road on an RC51, Superhawk, Gixxer 750, and a ZX-10R.
I tend to ride "the pace", keeping my speed around 70-80mph....straights and turns (except the REALLY tight ones). The big power bikes tend to be more "point and shoot". Teeter totter through the turns then light the fuse on the big engine.
