    You have got to be kidding me. This was a repost back when you were letting your wrist heal.

    IIRC, that thing is slower than a 1.3 gixxer

    on the track, hell, a 250 would probably beat that

    550k might be a little too much to spend on my first bike

    It was at the 2003 NAIAS. It's been around for ever.

    Take an engine out of a $100k car and slap it on wheels and all of a sudden it's worth over a half a million? :wtf:

    You should stop posting now. You really do not know what you're talking about.

    I don't see how they can get off calling that thing a "motorcycle"

    It has FOUR wheels!!!

    And there is no way in HELL that thing does 400 MPH... maybe in a completely "theoretical" world based purely off of HP to weight ratios.... but in the REAL world Aerodynamics is JUST as important as sheer HP vs. Weight when it comes to speeds above 170 MPH.

    That is why most motorcycles kick the shit out of just about any supercar up to that speed... but if both had a rolling start at 170MPH+ the car will almost always out-accelerate the motorcycle due to better aerodynamics... and breaking the 200MPH barrier is TOUGH!!! Especially in a completely unaerodynamic brick like that thing. Maybe if they attach an afterburner to it, it would do 400MPH but that is about it.

    that's why nobody knows how fast it is. you can't ride it, it will fly off the road. it could go 400 mph in a vacuum. and it would have to be remotely controlled. and be on a magnetic track that holds it down.
