    I don't think that's a genuine 220mph as it gets there very quick even for a fast road bike it seems too quick.

    I thought wind resistance became a huge factor at them speeds, i find it surprising that a bike can do 220mph, am i wrong?

    Todays litre sportsbikes will do 100mph in first gear, and the best part of 190 as standard...

    yea but hes right in that once you hit 200+ its probably like riding into a wall. you would need to more than double the bikes BHP and add a shedload of aerodynamic mods to get from 200mph to 250mph.

    some good videos on youtube of people hitting those speeds on the strip. and also of the air winning and people being blown off the bikes :eek: staying on the bike and hitting those speeds is supposed to be an art form. need to bend yourself into the most aerodynamic shapes possible whilst still having control.

    It gets to 220 quickly then stops going any quicker. I don't think it's legit.

    Also the 100 mph at the end looked slower.

    Look at the rev counter, the speedo is up against the stop!

    :rolleyes:

    Busa derestricted will easily make that speed, but not that quickly, I suspect the gearing has been changed.

    I know it's on the stop, but I think it got there too quickly.

    This was discussed on a forum a few years back. General concensus was, fake. Things are moving too slow to be 220

    I used to own one of these. Very fast. I think I had 160 out of it once or twice but run out of road. The one thing I do rememeber is hitting the bottom of sliproads entering onto the carriagway doing 150mph. That was very easy. Got tired of putting tyres on it every 1000 miles tho.

    Do they really eat tyres that much ? i have the zzr1200 and have done about 1200 miles with not to bad a wear on the rear or front but was looking at a zzr1400.

    True I suppose, but I'm still not convinced by the first couple of video's posted.

    220MPH on a bike? Requires Bigger balls than I'll ever have! :D

    A derestricted busa wont even do 200mph letalone 220mph [ no stock bike will ]
    you need other mods to crack the 200mph barier

    The OE tyres lasted about a 1000 miles for me. I then started putting 020's on there and it did about 2500-3000.
