French motorcycle magazine Moto-Revue Open link in a new window published an interesting article on the evolution of technology in motorcycle racing in a 30 years time span. Here's a summary:

MotoGP 1978 2007
Horsepower 125 220
Weight 127 148
Top Speed 280 kph 339 Kph
1 liter fuel range 4.5 kms 7 kms
Curve Lean Angle 55° 62°
Trial 1974 2007
Obstacle height 80 cm 310 cm
Turn circle 300 cm 140 cm
Motocross 1980 2007
Jump distance 10 meters 30 meters

If performance increases the same over the next 30 years, we'll be seeing motorcycle running at 500 kph, leaning 90° and jumping 100 meters.
