Here's some more info posted:

Best lap times at Misano:

1 - Aprilia RSV-4 1.45.367
2 - Suzuki GSX-R 1000 1.46.500
3 - Honda CBR 1000 RR ABS 1.46.866
4 - KTM RC8 R 1190 1.46.966
5 - Kawasaki ZX-10R 1.47.067
6 - MV Augusta F4 1078 1.47.234
7 - Ducati 1198 S DTC 1.47.234
8 - Yamaha YZF R1 1.47.733

- The CBR had ABS and the Ducati traction control.
- The BMW is said to probably not be up to par (circuit handling is not expected to be as good, though engine is expected to be fine). BMW probaby didn't want to be compared against the field or else they would have provided their "almost finished" bike.
- Each bike was suited with manufacturer recomended tyres (Michelin Yamaha, Bridgestone Honda/Suzuki, Pirelli for the rest)
- The previous classification I gave was based on the average points each bike got on the circuit (engine 25%+transmission 10%+handling 40%+ergonomics 5%+brakes 15%+mechanical accesibility 5%). Based on the former calculations, the average points in circuit for each bike were (1=WORST;10=BEST):

1 - Aprilia 9.3
2 - Suzuki 9.2
3 - Honda 9.1
4 - Ducati 9.1
5 - Kawasaki 8.9
6 - KTM 8.9
7 - Yamaha 8.9
8 - MV 8.8

Last but not least, Spanish price between parenthesis:

1 - Aprilia (20.577€)
2 - Suzuki (-€)
3 - Honda (17.949€)
4 - Ducati (23.875€)
5 - Kawasaki (14.650€)
6 - KTM (20.999€)
7 - Yamaha (15.699€)
8 - MV (22.246€)

The italian Motosprint magazine also includes these results this week.
