(Not a car VS bike thread, just an interesting observation) A while back Cycle world conducted a test to see which of the latest crop of Superbikes would be fastest from 0-180mph. ( 0-180mph = 17.21 secs ZX10R) The ZX10R came out top, even beating a modified Hennesy Ford GT. Also note 100-150mph times and the 150mph to 180mph time. As an interesting comparisson, a Bugatti Veyron's 'claimed' figures are a little faster from 0-180mph, but in actual tests conducted by Road & Track, times perhaps are a tad slower from 0-180mph compared to a ZX10R. Of course the test conditions for both are different so to reallly compare tests would have to done at the same time. Bugatti 0-171 in 16.4 second (not eactly 0-180) Bugatti accleration download from ROAD AND TRACK) http://www.roadandtrack.com/assets/download/0-200_Data.pdf.pdf ) Cycle world figures http://img236.imageshack.us/img236/9826/graphom8.jpg I don't know which is more impressive, a £9000 bike being as quick as a Veyron, or a 1900kg car being as quick as a bike, and ultimatley faster with a long enough road. The road going version of the Ducati Desmocedici was tested by MCN at 0-180mph in 16 seconds!! WOW PS Veyron 0-200pmh in 24 seconds!!! My bike is awsomely fast, 0-150mph in about 16 seconds, but would be left high and dry by the above!!
