So you guys didn´t get it yet?
For the comparison to be fair, bikes must provide a at least double power/weight ratio so JAW can show the world bikes are faster... at least in this useless 1/4 mile acceleration races as there´s no other scenario where a bike will beat a car. We all know once they go to a proper track with corners and brakings bikes will be anihilated
Sorry JAW but you´re so tiring.... you´ve even achived a biker like myself defend cars against your obvious bias. Bikes are my passion since I was a child, but as a technician I can´t cope with your biased and slanted comparisons
Andres, notwithstanding your perceived notions of "obvious bias" & "slanted comparisons", note
the O.P. was regarding roadgoing, rather than Formula racing. Quite manifestly, sans downforce,
both types of road-going sports machines under consideration can corner at ~1G, to 1.2 G, with
rider skill & confidence/daring & mindfulness being/giving the crucial edge.
Actually it seems you could usefully extend past a "technicians" limitation on understanding the
dynamics here, (& indulge your long-time "passion") by going for a ride on a proper superbike,
(& just as F1 Champion Lewis Hamilton found when riding Valentino Rossi's Moto GP bike), likely
you'll find yourself recalibrating your mindset on an empirical-experiential basis, accordingly...
"We all know" that this M3 driver is risking having his 'idiot lights' 2nd-guess him, too..
