Re: ran a cbr 600
Motorcycles usually have inexperienced riders, yes-even in a straight line, and poor aerodynamics and no torque. 600cc are good to about 145ish or once they have to shift a gear. Catch a good rider on a road with curves and you can say good-bye.
Just rearead the post and I see you were at 158 mph. I think the 600RR tops out at 165 or so, but once you get above 120 the RR does start to slow down so it is possible the rider just didn't take it up all the way.
In raw acceleration a CTS-V is not even close to a 600cc sport bike. Top Speed isn't exactly a motorcycle forte.
Pound for pound, that 600 has more torque than the V. Still not a very accurate statement.
(Edit: Just to back that up -- 107.2hp @ 13,500 45.4tq @ 11,500 445lb wet. That would put it about right on with the V's torque specs, not above.)
Of course, pound for pound, the busa is even more disgusting. No more so than the newer 1-liters coming out with gobs of hp & torque. It's getting harder to keep the front wheels on these things down nowadays.
