Any street car will get beat by an R6
This is a story from my local bike mag.
Dutch mag Moto73 put Belgarda Yamaha's World Supersport ace, Jurgen van den Goorbergh, on a STOCK R6 and pit him against a Merc-benz AMG E55 ..... a 5.4 litre, supercharged V8 monster costing $130000 us and driven by touring car racer Christijan Albers around the fast flowing curves of the assen race track, Van den Goorbergh comprehensively thrashed the car, taking the win by 10 secs. Here is a link to it.

Download uitzending Stem van NL is the link to watch

It's not english though

I think if you have to spend $122,000 more to a car to beat a bike then you definately have too much money... spend it to me :mrgreen: and i'll make good use of it.

I can tell you that the COMPLETELY race prepped 911 (probably well over $250,000), the open wheel Mazda race car ($???), and the Caterhan Super 7 were faster than the fastest bike on the track yesterday.

Those thing carry ungodly speed through the corners!! :bow
