Here is my take: knee dragging is about lean angle, not horsepower.
Sure, a 600cc bike is easier to ride around a tight course - you can get on the gas sooner than you can on a 100cc when leaned over... But you can still drag your knee on a 1000cc bike. Just enter the turn faster!!
I am a liter bike person, And live in an area that is full of mountain road twisties! 600's can get through the corner faster that us liters but we can very easily get a knee down. I just did last weekend only having a Z for 2 weeks. My knee pucks were getting lonely! lol
