The speeds are spot-on for those times in my experience (except Ricky's 1/8
mile speed which is a tad high). That "stock" 600 is making as much power as
a genuinely stock 9R though!
Sometimes it makes me wonder if it's worth all the aggro, and expense, of
building a special when you can just buy a 12 or a Busa, slap some
wheelie-bars and a slick on it and run 8s, or just leave it alone and still
go 200mph and ride it around every day!
