When looking at hull and turn rate (which are fairly closely correlated) for Federation cruisers and KDF battle cruisers it is true that the KDF is objectively "better":

Turn rates (hull)
* 6 = Galaxy/Galaxy-X (40000), Odyssey (42000), Fleet Galaxy (44000)
* 7 = Assault/Star Cruiser (39000), Fleet Star Cruiser (42900)
* 8 = Cheyenne Retrofit (36000), Excelsior Retrofit (39000), Fleet Cheyenne Retrofit (39600)

* 8 = D'Kora (36000)
* 10 = Galor (34500)

* 5.5 = Bortas/Bortasqu' (43500)
* 9 = Negh'Var (39000), Fleet Negh'Var (42900)
* 10 = Vor'cha Retrofit (36000), Fleet Vor'cha Retrofit (39600)
* 11 = K'tinga Retrofit (31500), Fleet K't'inga Retrofit (34450)

Does that mean KDF ships are better? No. There are a whole host of other factors -- number of crew, bridge officer, console, and device slots (all Fed T5 cruisers have 4 devices, all KDF T5 battle cruisers have 3 devices except for the Bortas/Bortasqu') all make a difference.
