IMHO, the video ends any and ALL debate on which is faster. The numbers don't lie.

There are plenty of cars out the on the street that can beat 1000's but they are def not stockers. A 700 hp s2000 should run with a bike on the highway. Ive raced 3 bikes in my life. A old 750 that the guy claims wasnt running right a harley sportster and a newer 750. The newer 750 smoked me the other two I beat. The harley guy was a dick about it the other guy was very cool. The new 750 gave me a thumbups even though he killed me.

So did the S2000 take it's styling from Ferrari, or has our car influenced the styling of Ferrari? The front end of the Ferrari Italia looks very S2000ish. Is it that the S2000 looks like late '90s Ferrari's?

Also what about the Start Button, did Ferrari have that first, or did the S2000?

This production car will beat quite a few bikes on the street and has a higher top speed than I believe all of them. So ha bikes suck I win.

Seriously, this is bordering on "I saw a modded YUGO beat an S2K on the Internets, so a YUGO is a better sportscar than an S2K" logic.

Nothing's keeping any of you from experiencing the current crop of manic superbikes other than fear (which is a good thing), skill, and opportunity. Get a real bike, get experience (actual data-points), and when your hands' stop shaking long enough so you can type, we'll discuss.

Miss the ole' V-twin. Best sounding thing I've ever owned.
Click the image to open in full size.

But in all fairness, the inline-4 literbikes from Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, and BMW are the fastest street bikes on the planet. The 1198S in the video is a great bike, but it's probably at the lower end of the performance spectrum compared to the other (much cheaper) bikes.

And let's get real, there's very, very few "production" cars that come close to matching a bike's potential. No reason to think otherwise.

Haha Jim I dont think there are many people out there that actually think that a liter bike is going to be slower than a car. I posted the shelby to be a smart *** and I know bikes like the zx-14 are faster but other bikes like a gsx-r1000's are slower than that shelby. But this is stock for stock. My point is more along the lines of when you hear these bike guys say a street car cant beat a bike. Thats all fine and dandy but I am a performance guy and when you modify a car they can beat bikes. I never much cared about what things do stock because I never really cared to leave my stuff stock.

Youre right I already know its a car. But I am just joshing you I know a bike is more fun and feels faster no matter what even if its a 600 and your average bike is faster than your average car. Just making a point that you cant call bs on all the bike races.

Only a retard would dispute the conclusion clearly reached in the video. A very fast production motorcycle annihilated what may be the fastest car in production. Any reasonable person cannot conclude otherwise. The evidence is clear and unambiguous!

Lol not even close to the fastest production car. But I dont think anyone ever disagreed that that bike killed that car in the race.

They may be faster than me but I personally know a few people that would make them look silly. Ive never been one to care if someone is faster because theres always soemone faster. Kinda like how the fastest street cars are faster than the fastest bikes.

As far as what am I gonna do I dunno drive them towards some wet road or into a hail storm I dunno I will think fo something.

the bike is only as good as the rider end of story; a 600cc is more than a handful for the average rider on the track. i have a 250 for my friends to play with, two 600 zx6r, and a honda 1000r. my bikes are my weekend toys and the s2k is my daily driver.

that ducati only got 10seconds in the 1/4 mi. (ducati are torq and mid end monsters...they do make 170 which is more than i could handle, but the japanese 1000cc inline4's are making some insane top end that no vtwin is going to compare to) i think a 08+ cbr1000rr is in the 9's with a pro rider and quick shifter (also due to stock optimized gearing for 1/4 mi).

i think my ninja250 with 36hp could beat a stock s2k 0-60 or at least be very close...im pretty sure it gets to about 60 in 1st gear lol. that thing is pretty fast in the 1st 2 gears...it only goes up to 100mph though.
