For those of you who don’t know what the first thing is, it’s an incredibly powerful motorbike. So this is the classic ‘which is faster, a motorbike or a car’ question. In the car’s favour you have better cornering ability and improved agility/a more settled nature. For the bike, you have a huge power to weight advantage. Which will win? Watch the video.
If you’ve done that, welcome back. For my money, it would probably be fairer matching a bike like that to an F1 car, that’s the level of performance it achieves. Similarly, it was on slick tyres and had modifications – neither of which was true for the car. Oh yeah, and don’t forget, it’s a video by Motorcycle News (the weekly paper), so it was unlikely that the car would come out on top!
