So, Ben Spies would have qualified 16th or so on his gsxr-1000 for the MotoGP field.

How close are the Superbikes to the MotoGP bikes in performance?

Quite a bit, you'd see a much bigger gap at a faster track. MotoGp bikes have more horsepower, are lighter, have better brakes, traction control, tires and riders.

"Spies would have qualfied 16th"
yeah, but he would have been lapped in the race. I felt the same way but after thinking about it 2 sec lap difference is huge at a smaller track like Laguna.
