Teuchert didn't have a chance on a street bike with those CRAAAAAP tires! I had those on my MV once and they were better than the old Pirelli Dragons, but still far off of race tires. I'm guessing with race slicks he could have gone 3 to 5 seconds faster right off the bat.
It's cool to see the bike and car together, but at least make it a fair fight. Either compare the street car to the street bike (in which case the bike would leave the car for dead), or compare a race bike to the race car.

A while back Kevin Schwantz (who is one hell of a 4-wheel driver) did a head-to-head comparison between a Suzuki GSXR100 and a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 @ Willow Springs. He had the bike @ 1:26, and the Vette @ 1:34.
I should point out that some in the Vette community took issue with the test as a good driver on better tires can hustle a Z06 around Willow in the 1:28 range.

Apparently i'm not a very good researcher because i can't seem to find anything via the search in here that addresses the paint colors/codes i'm looking for. Its the black/gray paint scheme of the 312. Can someone point me in the right direction for finding out spot on matches, or very close...
Back again and I apologize for the continued post. I am finding nothing but a hassle or very expensive repair. ($2000.00 USD)
I purchased my 2012 Brutale 1090RR pre-owned from a Harley Davidson dealer on 12-31-2019. It only came with one key, no security code card.
