I'm guessing if you are proficient in wheelie-ing one bike, you can wheelie any.

Gizmo and red_86 like this.

Sadly, some people have no business riding a motorcycle.

That is hard on the clutch and the fork seals.
Good to know the R3 can beat a scooter.

I call BS on the times and top speed.

Best I ever got was 150kmph top speed and 8 second 0-100 times.
How much does this guy weigh?

For the record I'm 265lb or 120kg and have a 45l top box mounted on the back.

I weigh 117 Kgs. I have reached upto 162 Kmph on level road. At that stage I still had more than 1000 rpms to go before the upper limit.

The 0-100 times are around >9 secs for me. Though that is more due to my gear shifting inadequacies rather than something to do with the bike.

regards,
Jawed

I hit 180 kmh (112 mph) with a light tail wind the other day. My speedo is accurate to within 1% or so. Full tuck, 180 lbs in gear, with saddlebags mounted. Haven't timed a 0-60, but it's pretty quick.

Maybe my 45l top box is killing my top speed?
