Litrebikes are perfect for the street, expecially if your a bigger person.

IMO 600 is plenty for me, but im 150lbs wet

You might want to include the type of race too. 600s start losing it in the higher speeds. When my Z was stock a 600 would beat me up until the 90 to 100 or so and then I would start to reel them in. I would imagine that the C6, SRT8 Challenger, or Cobra Mustangs keep the race closer on the low end. And I wouldn't put the new Z06 in the price category of a Mclaren.

yeah i could, but I want to know what cars in general would...and don't say z06, because it can't. And I'm not talking about running up to 205 mph (claimed topspeed of zo6) I just want to know what cars accelerate faster than bikes. what car could you drive stock that would pull on a litre/750 bike?

I mean a bike would runoff on everything till about 100mph, and sure some cars would begin to catch the bike then, but how many people on bikes or in cars race on the highway up to well over 100mph?

true, but if you ask me anything over 35K goes into one catagory....the "i can't afford that sh*t" catagory......

Depends on what we're talking about. 1320 or top speed. A derestricted E60 M5 is good for 204mph....some have even reported 207mph. A McLaren F1 is good for 23Xmph top speed and that's an old car

I can see anything 750 and under, or older model bigger bikes like my CBR cause its just about equal with the newer model 600s.

ENLIGHTEN ME!

I would say for the poser points for the majority


But some like Godsuki and me would say for the torque and ease of riding on long distance highway runs...
