That race will be decided by the aerodynamic properties and weight of the rider.

The ride sounds like a good chance to get out and check out my modification to the Tuono (serviced forks and new Ohlins shock) other than the fact the roads will likely be salt encrusted from tomorrow morning's snow.

Apparently it will be in the 60s and rain a bit in the morning. So hopefully the salt will be washed away

Correct. Horsepower is irrelevant.

Unless someone has done some serious tuning or engine work to the Grom or Z125, the difference in HP will not matter. 8.7hp vs. 8.3hp wont matter if you have a 360lb 6'6" guy on the one with 8.7 HP. With that said, eating up all of the available suspension travel with 360lb may lower the vehicle and improve the aerodynamics.
