    What thought it was faster then you today

    So was curious to see if any one had some douch that thought you were racing them and ended up getting smoked by your fz6.

    At 2 am on my way to work had some Asian kid who thought his 2019 Ford Mustang 5L GT was going to beat me even tho all I was doing was speeding up to get over for my turn. He found out quickly that his fancy mustang did not even stand a chance. Dusted him and made my turn lol.

    Without getting at all scientific, I think the average passenger car would need roughly 600hp to match acceleration with our bikes. That is rare company.

    ^^, that's about right.

    A guy had a "Linginfelter", supercharged Corvette ($150K car) and my FZ were about dead even in a drag (maybe 2 years ago) going over a long bridge (about 2 miles) with no traffic.. He couldn't pull away from me and vs versa..

    Years ago my friend lost to a BMW M5 on his '02 R6. I think that M5 had some work done though.

    Re: What thought it was faster then you today

    A few weeks ago a supercharged Ford f150 svt lightning decided he wanted some smoke from a dead stop. I enjoy the whine of a nice supercharger as much as the next gear head but he just couldn't keep up. To this day the fz6 surprises me when you rip the throttle in 1st & 2nd and I havent done much work other than- K&N filter, Airbox mod, delkevic exhaust.

    Ya it takes some really expensive hardware to match our $3,500 bikes @11 seconds...

    Ran up against a Lingienfelter Caddy CTS-V that was pushing mid 650hp, I wasn't sure he was going to play so I held back at launch, then he pinned it. It was tie to low triple digits where I bailed.

    It made an interesting soundtrack...

    Re: What thought it was faster then you today

    lol sounds like some interesting drags :P I never really expected the fz6 to be as fast as it is myself it being a touring bike and all. Mine is stock with 37,000km on it with barely any proper maintenance and it still rips really well. The only thing i had that would have stood a chance was a m5 bmw some asian kid sunk something like 30,000 worth of tuning and moding into. tho it was not a terribly fair drag he was behind me and was reving his engine obnoxiously. so i punched it soon as the light changed green. before he realized what happened i was already half a kilometer down the road lmao. he flew by me later after i turned down a side street haha
