They do have brake lights, they just don't always use them. I think they only use them in wet situations so they can be seen better, if I remember correctly...

...though that is not a MotoGP bike he is riding, it's a CBR1000, if it's the race between him, the V8 supecar and the F1 car.

If I recall correctly, it was a cbr1000 or some Fireblade.

It isn't a brake as much as a continuously blinking light to show the riders behind where the bike is.

Read post #8 for the truth of the matter. Proven every time with street car vs. bike. Add downforce-producing race cars, another story altogether.
Thats why I said with enough money of course, built cars will be faster and then there's no comparison with open wheel cars.

This video of this guys lap record in a superkart is only 2 seconds slower then Marc Marquez record lap at Laguna Seca (yes the kart is still technically slower but still a comparison of a $20k karts vs a soon to be MotoGP world Champion on a MotoGP bike)

4 Wheels > 2 wheels
