      Lol, no. Power to weight ratio is insane for bikes. The biggest limiting factor is handling. Tires have come a long fricking way in the past few decades. Bikes benefit from this as well, but physics are physics and you can only turn as far as you can lean.

    I watched some guy in a honda goldwing or similar MAXIMUM LEAN to take a regular left hander at 20mph. My FWD shitbox on it's destitute-tier shitbox tires would barely be at 60% of it's grip limit to do the same. It's a turn I know I can take at 30 entry, 27 apex, 32mph out in this car, on these tires.

    The comparison between a superbike and a same-tier sports car is similar.
    Wheels in line with the CoG, and only having two wheels, means bikes cannot turn as fast as cars.

      This thread will never be full of meaningful discussion anyway since someone relit the bikes vs cars benchrace war a couple years ago, but lean angle is actually a lot more related to body position than you think. I can scrape peg or not in the same corner at the same speed depending on if I sit on top of the bike, remain neutral, or hang off to the inside.

            First you gotta establish what bike and how its slow before you can say "bikes are slow", and so far it seems the only thing anyone's done is cherry pick from an extremely small pool of records where a car beat a bike.

        And again, dude, I can dump my bike so far over the footpeg is scraping at parking lot speeds, yet still take mountain road corners at 50,60,70 mph with plenty of headroom to go faster. It's all in body position + speed, not just the corner speed. Absolutely, a well set up car can achieve a faster possible MAXIMUM corner speed in ideal conditions, but we live in the real world here where most of us don't have thousands of hours of track time (also, guess what, bike guys get more of that due to lower cost of entry) and perfect grippy tires and a closed course in decent condition to let all that performance out, so for the average joe, cornering is about the same assuming you're on a faired or naked sportbike which is built for handling. They're also really good for not getting stuck behind slow traffic due to insane acceleration.
        I don't get why we can't all just be chill, I guess benchracers finally got bored of the GT86 so they moved onto bikes vs cars? Why you gotta be so mad/a gay about this instead of enjoying both of these incredible videos?

    That is an 11 year old record. It could probably be beaten, but management at Nürburgring Nordschleife are kind of buttholes to motorcycles. They won't rent out the track for solo attempts at records for motorcycles for some reason. This guy lost probably 15-30 seconds to traffic.

    Bikes don't have "bad" handling, they just corner different to cars. It's a pretty stupid comparison to make.
    I find that casual pace on a bike is faster than casual pace on a car though. It's only when you start pushing limits that cars come out quicker but again, it doesn't matter because 99% of the time bikes and cars are not on the track together.

      It's grip. All of the fastest burgerring laps are high downforce cars. It is literally impossible for a bike to ever outpace them because you can't really downforce a bike much. I mean you can, in certain ways, but not like a car. Only a moron would not understand this.
