Now… it doesn’t happen to me very often that a motorcycle overtakes me on a straight while I have the throttle wide open (riding a Blackbird and all) but one of these flew past me this summer:
Now, my bird: 280kg, 150hp, plus my lardy arse: 430kg+
The ZX-10R: 180kg, 175hp, plus some scrawny gimp: 250kg ?
Watch it. It’s a trip to watch this thing destroy the autobahn. Slowing down for those pesky family cars going 100 mph – the buggers blighting the left lane
I’m not tempted by one of these bikes at all, the effective tank range is probably half an hour at flank speed and you’d need a chiropractor after riding it for that long but… f**k me, that’s a man’s man’s bike. RESPECT YO
