    shinkaze whadyathink 'bout this story?

    Doubt my V would have kept up with my F3, much less an F4...maybe the rider wasn't all that excited after the two (3,4?) of you passed into triple digit speeds?

    The CBR should have wasted you IMHO.

    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.

    Give me a break, no torque? Say that to my hayabusa.

    I love the V, but any car is a slug compared to my bike. Of course, until an Enzo makes it's way into my driveway (c'mon lottery).

    Re: ran a cbr 600

    my VTR 1000 Superhawk (modded, 100RWHP) HAS torque, and makes me dizzy much akin to G-LOC when I hit her hard.....my V is nowhere anywhere near as fast as she is.

    The CBR guy must have been scared or stupid or something.
    Still a run to 158 had to have been fun

    His comment about no torque is accurate as he referenced a 600cc bike, your busa has 1300 (and yes it has torque).

    My stock CBR-600RR runs High 10's in the Qtr mile. I've beat a couple of Cobras and LS1's off the line leaving second gear. (Didn't even realize I was racing someone).

    While I agree that many people riding bikes are inexperienced, even a noob can point the bike in a straight line and twist the throttle.

    Re: ran a cbr 600

    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.

    Ha ha, I agree... but then again, isn't that what most car drivers also do?

    Re: ran a cbr 600

    Did some research, cause you sparked my curiosity, it looks like you were at or near the 600RR's top speed afterall.

    Cycle World, May 2003
    QTR Mile: 10.68@130mph
    Observed Top Speed: 156 mph

    Motor Cyclist, June 2003
    QTR Mile: 10.94@127.13 mph
    Observed Top Speed: 162.2 mph

    So, good strategy, Let him beat you to the mile marker than blow by him when he tops out

    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.
