HeH, there's a man who knowes who to use his bike
Just to let you guys know, it takes the gixxer 6 115 HP to get to 160, but the Gixxer 1K 175 HP to get to 180. Thats a difernece in HP of about 60 horse. but you only gain 20 MPH.
I've saw a turbo gixxer 1K with 295 HP, still only able to hit 205. 295 HP and a 25 mph gain! what causes this problem? Aerodynamics.
Modern cages can be much more aerodynamic than sport bikes. Take for example, the Saleen S7. It can do 230 MPH, with only 500 HP. How? becuase of its light weight (nearly 1 ton), good drive system, and most of all aerodynamics.
So if you want to beat your friend in a race, wear tight clothing, take off your mirrors, and get rid of the mud flap.
