That depends on whether you mean the actual Search index backend, or
the KV backend used for storing complete analyzed documents.  There is
currently only one backend (merge_index) that works under Riak Search,
but one could certainly swap out the KV part's backend if bitcask
wasn't a good fit for that part.

The relative performance characteristics of bitcask and innostore
under Riak KV are well known in general, but no top-to-bottom testing
of Riak Search that I know of has been performed using innostore as
the KV backend.
