I was watching SPEED and was on the GP Moto 250 CC bike racing in Assen, Holland. These bikes look as fast as there supersport counterparts. They look as if they are going F1 car speed!

Am I wrong?

yes, you're completely wrong :)

The supersports are 600's, loosely based on road bikes like r6's, gixxer 600's etc etc.

The 250gp bikes are prototype bikes, no way can you buy anything like them for the road, and a 250gp bike would utterly slaughter any supersports bike on the track.

It's a shame you're not getting the 250gp at Laguna this weekend, the 250 gp's are awesome and provide some of the most entertaining bike racing you can watch.

Wait, so if they're not going F1 car speed, how fast are they going?

Nothing can go around a track as fast as an F1 car. Generally the 250gp bikes are a couple of seconds off the Motogp bikes, depending on track and rider obviously, but even the Motogp bikes wouldn't have a chance with an F1 car.
