Slap a motor in a piece of shit and watch it go fast in a straightline... how is this original/interesting to anyone still? Slap a turbo on the R1 and (given enough gearing) watch it demolish the Volvo. Are we all excited yet?
Bikes have also suffered at pure top end runs versus cars, this isn't anything new. Put a decent rider on the R1 and have them go out at it from a dig in the standing mile... then it might be slightly interesting.
Or better yet, throw in hard braking down to some tight curves
But I forgot that the rolling start crowd loves this sort of thing...
