FASTER!

IN the United States of America we have Speed LIMITS, not Recommended speeds...The next time you look at the white SIgn posting Read it real closely, besides loking at the number, then look in the dictionary for the defination of the word LIMIT. I don't care if you have a World Products 572 big block under the hood of a Chevrolet Vega, or a Chevrolet Nova, or even a 2.8L under the hood of a Chevrolet Corvette, the Maximum Speed LIMIT is the white rectangular sign that is the law. Disobey the law and you are giving the rest of us a bad name. Please respect the LIMIT signs and enjoy the scenery and the sweet smells of the country side as you carefully ride your motorcycle...

In the United States of America, we have the sands of daytona! In the United States of America, we have rural parts of highways at 12:00. In germany, they have the autobahn.

The Hayabusa will win out in top end and in 1/4 mile. It has better aerodynamics and is lower. ZX12R will take a hayabusa on a track in a second though. (better ground clearance, shorter length too)

The rider has more to do with the abilities than the differences between these two particular bikes though.

i dunno. the hayabusa is pretty good on the twisties. i never heard of someone using a 12r on the twisties, but i saw on real tv a guy using a busa on them.

SALT FLATS IN UTAH

SOAD, we also have the salt flats, unlimited speeds, and the drag strips, and special places where the states and counties look the opposite direction up to a point. Sure there are places that we can open up even race tracks where it is even safer, with medical attention available, turn martials...not a bad place to learn about your abilities which you will find are short of the bikes...
WHO CARES which is the fastest, if you can't ride that fast anyway? There are some roads in Arizona and California that are nthing but switchbacks for miles, and you would be more than crazy if youtried to take them at 50mph...your tires wouldn't last from the rear end sliding and smoking as you were accelerating, and dragging your pegs as you literally attacked these corners. ASK Curt, he has some miles on his bike. A lighter bike less mass has the advantage. You put the new 572 Chevrolet (World Motors) in a Camaro, Impala, Monte Carlo, something that won't twits apart on a mountain road with tha tmuch torque and Horse power, and you will find a Kawasaki Ninja250R faster time up and down hill. Take a crash course in Technical Physics...it is facinating! I think that due to power to weight a ZX-6 either one would be cool to use as an example but you would not be able to use all of the power either up or down hill in the switchbacks that I am refering to...

Not always true my friend :p :wink: :wink:

We have been on a few mountian roads & normally aspirated cars could not keep up with the turbo diesel 8) This one time on I-70 going toward Aspen we had a Corvette pass us on the flats. We were going up a pass & blew past him like he was standing still as at altitude his car was sooooo slow it was funny. He passed us on the down slope a couple times (going 100+) but every time we caught him & passed him on the up hill side. Last we saw him he was pounding the crap out of his steering wheel as we left him in a cloud of diesel smoke :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

NOW RampRat

Natural Asperated not Turbo Diesel Injection or even turbocharged, or super charged...A Ninja 250R will beat most cars up winding switchbacks and then back down again...Actually I'm selecting 12Vdc muffin fans for a cheap form of supercharging...see what seems to work the best, and then decide if I need to intsall a rheostat for various inclines and altitudes, because of the changes...it's not cheating it's just a cheap form of ambient pressure created by a couple of muffins installed...I have several different models from 3.5"-5" and all rated at different rpm's/cfm...I figure it shouldn't hurt anything and it's alot less work than a supercharger, and a lot less money too. What do you think? MY 1997 Ford F250 7.3Liter International Harvester Engine was kick butt when the turbo was cranking.
