With my 05 RR I did several roll ons with my buddy who has an 08 R1. I pulled him pretty good all the way from 5K up to about 10K and then he passes. The 08 R1 makes more power on the top but has a soft midrange like all years. I'm a big guy and he is small so I was quite happy. This was using third gear I believe.

You should have no trouble with a 2000 R1 all other things being equal. If you try from a standing start then whoever can launch better will win.

There's an art to getting any bike off the line properly so as stated it will come down to the rider.
Would be the same story around a track except for maybe top 10% of riders.
Then you would need to start looking at suspension etc instead of power to get the most out of any bike.
Only place power will make a difference is rolling starts and then you will get different results at different speeds and gears.
