My M2 can blow any pocketbike out of the water
I can beat it on a 50cc as long as I chose the course :twisted:
I can beat both on foot if I get to choose the course... :lol: :lol:

A 720S with a tune will run a 8 second quarter mile. Meanwhile, it will thrash a superbike in the corners. 765LT is about to open a can of whoopa$$ on bikers. Not to mention the Valkyrie or AMG One

Care to post a vid showing that 8 sec 1/4 mile performance from a 720$$?

A few pages back, I posted this vid of a Honda roadbike zapping an 8 sec 1/4 Nissan,
did you perhaps miss it?



& of course, unlike the McLaren, the Honda is N/aspirated, see below for a turbo roadbike:

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 #-o

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..

Here below is a classic Motor Trend 'car vs bike' test from a decade back, which includes topic relevant
comparisons (& by some of which the car guys are openly hoping will result in a car victory), but sadly
for them, the bike defeated the car for speed/time around a track with tight corners,
(& indeed - in the print copy of the mag - even around a 360`skidpan test, yes pulling higher G).

So enjoy:
