A 'supersports' bike and a car are two totally different things,ah22aselude said:looks like a load of horse sheat if you ask me ..... if he was actually goint that fast then those trucks would be nothing but a blur-- I have been super fast on a supersport bike before and can tell you things at that spped come on a lot faster than that ..
It was real and if you take into account that this could have been a European country where trucks are allowed to go over 70 MPH then that could be true. 170 is a possible speed for a S2k to acheive. Looked real to me and pretty fucking stupid. I would never do that on a public road.ah22aselude said:looks like a load of horse sheat if you ask me ..... if he was actually goint that fast then those trucks would be nothing but a blur-- I have been super fast on a supersport bike before and can tell you things at that spped come on a lot faster than that ..
[email protected] said:i understand the vid was taken in the u.k. - trucks do drive at insane speeds up there. i've seen 240kph (148mph) in a semi-race corolla before and it didn't feel as fast as the speedo indicated.so, yeah i believe what the speedo says.
we all know the numbers but i did the conversion to save you guys the time: 1 mile=1.62 kilometers
upshift to 2nd gear @ 98kphph (98/1.62)= 60.49mph
3rd gear @145kph (89.50mph)
4th gear @191kph (117.90mph)
5th gear @230kph (141.97mph)
and finally he bounces off the rev limiter at max. overdrive at 281kph ( :wow 173.45mph).i've driven the AP1 but at only at sane speeds.
Now Road&Track tested an S2000 in Aug. of 2003 and realized a top speed of 163mph. 173 miles per hour is not impossible with some mods and/or just a slightly smaller wheel/tire overall diameter was used in place ot the o.e.m. equipment (that would translate to higher speedo readings when the actual speed is really lower).but in this case, 173.45mph is attainable on a very capable machine.
to all the s2000 drivers who've driven their AP1s hard - are my numbers correct?
