BMW Alpina B7 vs. Motohouston

So my boss drives a BMW Alpina (See link if you have no idea what that is):

http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Conte...rU0r7lMjwdIFY=

He is under the impression that a motorcycle, let's say a 600 of any make, is no match for his car. I'll give it to him, it's a bad , but come on. Really? How bout a 750? 848? Liter? Short of takin him on to settle the argument, what say yee?

I've driven and worked on them.

Im not impressed. Yes, a little more kick then the stock 750iL, but I know even the cheaper 135i will smoke it.

My brother drives the 135 turbo and he said that he smoked the 600 at 150mph. 600 are fast but when you do a rolling from 100+mph, 600 will have problem with these supercars.

Ask your boss if he has beaten a corvette? A Z06? How about twin turbo Benz? M5 with 10cyl is fast but still no match for liter bike. Maybe he can beat a 600 from a rolling 100mph but still no match for liter bike.

I would hardly call a 135i a supercar. I love them, but from the factory, it's only a quick little car. Tack on the 'market value' BS and the 335i is actually cheaper most of the time.

Yeah, I don't mean the 135 is supercars compared to what mention about z06, slr, m5, etc..
Just saying a little car like 135 with the turbo is mighty quick that will give the 600 a hard time.

Ah ok. I was wondering. I'd cry if my 636 lost to a mid 13 second car though. A few choice mods and a 135 is a fast sonofabitch though. I wanna see what the redesigned model looks like.

With a 4.8 sec 0-60 time he's not going to beat many bikes from a standstill.

600 will kill the alpina

I actualy happen to own an ISF which is Much Faster than the alpina B7 and the my 07 zx6r was slighly faster but not much faster.. a liter bike would eat
any aformentioned car including any 135is . a not so experianced rider could get a 600 to be faster imagine an expert... I literaly have put this to the test.. Now mY ISF on Nitrous is another story..

Not in Houston, lol.

Check out the monsters on HPD. I had 487 RWHP and I was a slow guy. I could hang with 600s, but not a liter bike.

I actually pulled on an R1, but that's an R1..not a real bike.



j/k....the guy couldnt ride for , I could have taken him in a Civic.


I think that car would have to be making around 650 at the crank to hang with a 600, and at least 850 to hang with a liter bike. (probably more..it's pretty heavy.)
