F4 1078 Vs Kawa ZX10 2011

I always avoid racing other bikes simply because roads are bad here and car drivers are idiots so its pretty much stupid and suicidal.

However last night I could not resist.. After some guy with a new ZX10 came up to me in the petrol station to ask whether my bike is a new Hyosung (!) I replied No its an Italian bike and then he concluded it must be a crap engine (he said Italian engineering usually is), it looks OK but if I wanted power I should have gotten the new ZX10... I just said why dont we find out in the highway nearby?

The MV smoked the ZX10. OK I do have a microtec ecu and full system but still I was not sure of the outcome. New kawa challenged even the mighty BMW so I honestly thought I could be embarassed. But no. First 150m he stayed behind me but end of a 1.5 km straight the MV was maybe ..20m in the front.. Guy at traffic lights said that he missed a couple of gears thats why he stayed behind. Right.

Just to share the 'experience' although not to be repeated any time soon. Not bad for a Hyosung, right??

Cool

Good story Phil! He probably missed a few gears in his head as well...

That 1078RR is one h*ll of a bike, as I recall only too clearly...

Funny my buddy rode my 1000s for about a mile and he comes back honestly asking me if it was a 600 he has a cbr1000rr. i said no its a 1000 completely stock, he says ok....i guess they dont have that much power, so i say, its enough, trust me is enough. still havent had the opportunity to open it up on the highway next to him just to compare. btw great story

Well, I never understand why so many people are so narrow-minded. They just would have to read a bike magazine..... ohh reading... maybe that is the skill I was expecting wrongly.

In any event: boys and girls, such people are riding on the street and try to compete with you. Beware, because they may lack other skills too.

If he thinks that the 1000 S .... is a 600 ..... for sure he doesnt live in planet earth..... i mean cbr 1000 rr is slower then the 1000 S specially at lower revs....

and the cbr 600.... doesnt move untill 9000 rpm.

I changed my F4 1000 S for a Yamaha r1 .... and untill 9000 rpm ... no way the R1 was faster....
