I think it is track dependant.it really doesn't matter if their going 125mph on the straights or 160mph there still going to reel you in the corners. Being fast on a racetrack has very little to do with the machine unless you are at a professional level
I see. Its good to know, I am worried that I'll get in everyones way in a novice session because I don't have the HP..! Can't wait till I try a track on a motorcyclethat may be true in auto racing, but in motorcycle racing it's not so accurate. i have done many track days and races on a ZX6R and a R6 and i have embarassed people on gixxer 1000's and been embarassed by many on older 250 ninjas and sv650's. it's 90% rider
if they are going 125, i want to know what they did to the engine. the land speed at the salt flats was about 110, and that bike was designed to go fast in a straight line.it's decieving because they can only be going a top speed of what 125mph down those back straights?
Hmmmmm. I will wait until the track day to make a judgement. Auto track days are just like that, but as soon as people figure out how to late apex and do at least 80% of potential cornering force it seemed that cars with twice HP were impossible to catch, unless it was a track like Streets.The above posts are true. I've done a track day on a 250. Had a blast. I past a many 600 and 1000's. I had guys coming up to me and asking what size my bike was and were in disbelief about it being a 250. I will note, though, by the end of the day some of the bikes i was passing had gotten better and were now passing me. I did feel as though my lack of horsepower had limited me. I am waiting to do a track day with the 636. cheers:cheers
