Default Importance of a slipper clutch?

How does the 2007 Honda CBR 1000 RR win the liter bike shoot out without a slipper clutch? Or am I misinformed about it's construction?

Why would it need a slipper clutch to win a shootout? A slipper clutch only comes into play if you can't count correctly.

What shootout? Did someone do a shootout? Can anyone this side of a pro even tell the difference any more? Are literbikes even rideable on the sort of public roads many of us are faced with?

Enquiring minds want to know.

You shouldn't wear slippers when riding a Motorcycle: it'll surely hurt if you fall off.

I always wear sturdy hiking/work boots, or sometimes a pair of real-live "Motorcycle Boots".............
