I guess if you can demonstrate you are used to the performance of a vehicle, you are less of an insurance risk.
Think of it this way:
Bloke A: aged 28, ridden bikes for the last 10 years, a mixture of 600s, 750s and is now getting his second 1000cc.
Bloke B: aged 50, driven his Volvo for the last 30 years, done his direct access course (5 days on the road, 4 on a 500cc) who goes out and buys a 1000cc sportsbike same as gentleman A.
Who is the greater statistical risk?
From that perspective I agree, but I can also see the problem of 'proving' you've insured some quicker cars, or had regular access to them...
