Re: 2017/2018 Yamaha R6 0-60 times
You seemed to be flaming the poster for asking the (very simple) question.
If that was not your intent, it really didn't come across that way.
Your point is, they're so ridiculously quick that it's silly to ask for 0-60? Mmmm... maybe. In some limited fashion, that may be the case, but the 0-60 MPH is as much or more about the environment than the vehicle. Again, you're talking racing, and on a track, he's talking 0-60, and on a street. Two different things. It's true that it is a STREET racing bike, but it's not like you're putting an 8,000HP funny car on the street... which means it isn't precluded from responsibly riding it on the street... which means it isn't precluded from quoting a street related metric. It isn't practical to do 60ft on a street. It isn't practical or sa...SQUIRREL!!..sh**..TREE..fe to do 1/8 or 1/4 on the street. That's (another reason) why he is sticking to 60MPH.
I know you're not being serious but, 15k to get rolling!? Install any clutches lately?

^ Turbo charged Grom. Not meant for racing, but he did anyway. Why? For kicks. (and those low quality turbo Grom kits are probably all over by now) I wonder what the 0-60 MPH is on that? Still slow... yeah... but it'd be interesting to find out how much less slow it is. Among other factors, they're probably popular because they're cheap to buy, easy to ride and easy to maintain and Honda (<-- name brand). Around here, why drop major $,$$$ into a two wheeled vehicle that you're only going to be on for literally much less than 1,000 miles per year. Just get a cheap Grom and with a strong backwind on a downhill, have a little fun.
