Is there any real difference between ships aside from the following?

-Drone capability
-Weapon bonuses

Besides those 3, is there really much difference between the ships of the same class from one race to another?

Yes there is...numbers of slots...type of tanking it does. Velocities...

No two ships in EVE are the same. Often even a small difference in stats or bonuses can have a large effect on how the ship is fit and what role it plays.

You will find many people cross-train races to get access to more ships. If they were all the same, there would be no reason to.

Yes. No two shiptypes are the same.

They differ by pretty much every stat there is to differ by.

Here a list copy pasted from an item database entry

Structure Hitpoints
Max Velocity
Inertia Modifier
Cargo Capacity
powergrid Output
Low Slots
Med Slots
High Slots
CPU Output
Launcher hardpoints
Turret hardpoints
Upgrade Hardpoints
Capacitor Recharge time
Capacitor Capacity
Maximum Targeting Range
Max Locked Targets
Sensor type
Signature Radius
Scan Resolution
Shield Capacity
Shield Resistance
Shield recharge time
Armor Hitpoints
Armor Resistance
Drone Capacity
Drone Bandwidth
Rig Size

Even ships of the same a size category and role differ according to race by things other then bonuses.

I can see that the similarities between ships of one class are far bigger than their differences, the variety more lies in details.
