A performance car can easily out brake a bike of a similar class. Now, if we are talking an MV vs a minivan, you should be able to outbrake them.
But if we are taking an MV vs a Lotus, M3 or the like then Id leave following distance. While being heavy the car has a few advantages, the key one being the very low COG, preventing the "stoppie."
Now, regarding the person piloting it. Studies have shown that, by a great margin, the reaction times of the average biker are superior. Most attribute it to the brain's constant stimulation and the demands of riding vs being in a car.
