Not just talent. Plenty of talent out there. Not everyone can afford to move to Spain or Italy at a young age though.The superbike thing is just to do with talent. That's it. Moto2 have different tyres and riding style as well but it's currently the preferred path the most talented riders are taking. If they came through superbikes instead then they'd adapt just the same.
Put any of Mir, Rins, Vinales, the Esparagaros, Marquez Jr in WSBK and they're highly likely to be at least front runners if not champion.
I wouldn't see any of those riders winning a SBK championship. Maybe Maybe Marq jnr after a couple of years. He looks good in the rain IMO.
Only riders I could see successful in SBK quickly would be Miller and Zarco. Obviously Marquez.
