150 kph that is....
250's only run 14 or 15 second 1/4 miles...but like someone else said, the EX-500 will do a 12.8 at 101 mph, in a PERFECT pass, bone stock. To an average rider, this will equate to a low 13 second pass and probably a 5.0-5.5 second 0-60.
My Mustang runs 104 mph traps in the 1/4 but only a best of a 5.3 second 0-60 cause it refuses to launch properly.
Race your average sports cars...but don't go after anything crazy. Or if you do, make sure you're entering the fat spot of the powerband, in the appropriate gear (as numerically low as possible)...so when they romp on it you'll immediately pull before they have a chance to even the acceleration out since cars have much taller gearing than bikes.
