Sorry, I know it's a boring video but I had to ask myself how fast was the Audi going to pass that bike I assume is topped out? That's all.

Lol@ the bike doing the ricer flyby. I thought that was limited to 90hp cars with fart cans. :D

Where was this? As I can't make out the tachometer, I can't tell you for sure how fast, but all Japanese bikes have been restricted to something like 176mph or 186mph since the early 00's. Also, the funny thing is that bikes have a much worse CoD than cars....

In reply to yamaha: 300kph is around 180mph

BTW, imagine the rider's face when he saw a wagon blow on by...

Faster sure, out accelerating.....doubtful. Granted, I think the OP video was the new heavy zx10, where as the one I've posted below here is a first gen(light with about the same power) like mine......

Doesn't the newish ZX-10 run 9s in the quarter stock? That's fast.

In reply to Cotton:

The new ones have a bunch of electronic nannies(TCS, wheelie control, quick shifters, ABS, etc) Basically the new one is easy to be quick. The old ones will still put up a hell of a fight though.

In reply to Giant Purple Snorklewacker:

I couldn't make out the speedo when the audi passed either, but judging by the rate of things flying by, between 160-170.

Also, Kaw's don't run on anything but pure bullE36 M3.....

In reply to Giant Purple Snorklewacker:

Maybe, but there was a whole lot of footage of just the bike flying along. It looked as though the wagons' appearance was an anomaly not the subject of the video. But who knows...

Quite an aware biker. He pulled out of the fast lane to let the wagon past- most guys rolling that kind of speed have a tendency toward tunnel vision.

He slowed down to 275 when the camera came in-focus.

I think that might have been a fire breathing RS6 Avant. Lambo derived v10 twin turbo. With a tune, I imagine 200+ mph should be well within its capabilities. Bike are fast but drag limited

That V10 is just two Jetta engines joined at the crank

It looked like an RS4 to me, but it's really hard to tell in the video. I thought the twin turbo V8 was in later RS4s but apparently that was only in the RS6s.

OK, I'll say it first..............OMG that was stupid! Any number of things could have happened, like one of the other vehicles pulling out into the fast lane or a tire blow out and that rider would be just a grease stain on the road. I must be getting old or something but I just don't get it.
