Bike was ridden by Chris Northover of Superbike Magazine. It maxed out as it hit the Rev limiter at 192mph, a second ahead of the cars on the track.

Saw this video a couple of days ago. Super cool that you let them use your bike like that. Cheers!

Wilf said one of the bikes he sold was doing this! Awesome. Yeah ur right, I reckon with less of the front coming up good chance the SL would have hit the line first despite the running out!

Bet your liking it much!

gone are the days where in 600cc sports bike can leave any production car to dust. In this video I can not beleive that the car's won on the strait line, there is just no way right?

Its like having a bad dream. over a year ago I pleasantly cruising on the free way when a freaking nissan gtr tailgated me. and he went on my side and gave a friendly wave. I downshifted and opened the throttle as I know he wants to race. as expected I left him behind, but after 5-10 seconds he blew past me=(

cars are getting faster !!

You can see the full report on the test on this video starting at 12:21mins. It's quite different to the brief Autocar vid.

Depends on the race but 600s will outrun most cars 0-200. Then aero and horsepower come into play and the cars go by.

Also I dont think the car won. The 1199 spanked both cars until it reached its speed limiter.

Also a 600 costs what? 5-6k for a decent one? A car that can run with it? Repeatedly and reliably? 10x more probably.
