OK I'll put on my flame suit to thow the BS flag, ya-ya I know but I have hit 140 in my IROC and NO F"in way is he on nose up @ 130. That can't be 200+ You can see the inner speedo is k/ph and the outer is m/ph but he had to mess with it to read that high.
Look @ the lines, you can make each of them out even topped out, and the cars going the other way should just be a blur.

I'll raise the flag on that one. I've been to 140ish in a truck and 185ish in a Vette. That just looks wrong.

If you blow it up you can see his helmet in the reflection. Looks a little too bouncy.

Hayabusa'* are crazy fast and the turbo ones are just nuts. But I think I have seen this video b4. And if you watch the video around 38 seconds in as he passes that turn around in the road it does not appear to be 220mph like the speedo says. Something is up for sure in the video but is he going fast either way Just my 2cents

UMM 20 seconds from 0-220 mph..........

now I realize thats a 10 second bike, but 8 seconds to 120 would require ALOT harder launch than that!!!!
nice try

The fastest he ever got was 158. WHy? Look at the digital readout. It never changes, and the highest it gets is 158 mph....if that is mph. At 200? Those cars shoulda been blurs......and those lines in the road should have blurred straight together....

I have been in a turbo eclispe 5 speed and done 120+ MPH. that is not 200 MPH. The lines in the road start to look solid up around 120 if i remember right.
