tiff and vicki try to reach Kawasaki ZX-14's speed limit!
Hmm not bad :P It was hard to tell if they were using full throttle though?
I'd love to be given the opportunity to play with a ZX-14 like that. I doubt they were using full throttle, at least for the first couple of runs and the first few gears.
If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
yeh, no kiddin eh.. specially at the straight track... doubt i'd enjoy that beast much in the twisties...
mind you, i tell you, i'd def ride'er harder than them wimps.. not to stretch my pecs but i've had my little r6 to 160mph (256) and she had 175 (280) in her easy... had i started earlier at the hope 'fall'... so, ahh, yeh i'll stick with lighter bikes... i really wanna see what i can do w/ the new r1 though... lol!!!!

Remember, also, that your R6 - like every other road bike - has its speedo calibrated to display a faster speed than it actually attains, so if your 600 manages to reach an actual 175 mph, the AMA or World Supersport tuner you have preparing it deserves a big bonus.
"When in doubt, FLAT OUT!"
it set totally new records for the fugliest bike ever as well.
It's like letting kids play with dynamite. 8-10% speedo error too people , i guess they can't afford a G P S .
whats with the speedo innaccuracy? They use the highest tech bits available, and you still say they are out by 8-10%... I call bullshit! I've topped my CBR929RR out at 278km/hr and according to you a 152hp (126.5rwhp) 375lb (dry) supersport bike can barely hit 250km/hr at 10% error... hmmm I don't think so. Maybe Honda should quit making bikes, since they can only acheive such low numbers.
Either on this site or sportbike network somebody checked using a GPS and confirmed their speedo was out. I don't see the point in doing it but if you were so inclined you could do a search and let us know the fruits of your labour.
Or you could just keep talking out your ass...
last run i did to squamish there was a radar trailer on the side of the road. clocked at 69, speedo said 75.
i had a gps on my 750 the year cosworth and i rode to sportbike west (when it was still at the ranch) and gps speed was well under speedo.
funny in the video they claim that the bike is the fastest in production at 186 mph. for years now the manufacturers have limited their bikes to this speed. all litre bikes will do this speed. in fact, i bet the unrestricted hayabusa would walk all over the ugly spider looking POS.
no matter what kawi does, it will always = JUNK!
I have used the GPS on several bikes (not my gixxer thou though) and the speedo is ALWAYS out and ALWAYS high.... so yup I can attest to a 5-10% error.
I'll try it out on the Gixxer thou and see what the error is like..... and report back.....Maybe not right at the momemt cause it's raining..and the rain would cause drag......hahaha
God invented Litre Class so everybody would have a chance to chase some tail!
