Nice find... my point is they paid 12k for the R1 and the BMW M3 Turbo... well we won't even go there...

Lambo ($300,000) vs. Ducati 1098S ($20k bike)

12k for an R1?!? A bit steep?

I have dialup so I can't watch your vid; Is it the TopGear with the Gallardo vs the 1098? Thats a good one. Anyone seen the TopGear when the Brits come to Alabama, buy thousand dollar beater cars, and paint things on them they hope to piss off the Alabama boys with. Things such as 'Nascar sucks', 'Man Love rules', 'I'm Bi', and my favorite, 'Country and western is rubbish'. They end up getting basically chased out of town by a truck full of hillbillys and their dogs. Its funny seeing people who couldn't be more British in the thick of the Midwest.

just out of curiosity, wouldnt you want a supercharger on a bike instead of a turbo? Reason for that is turbo will give you quite more boost once it spools and the hit of it spooling up is quite harsh so it wont pull much but once the boost hits it may even throw you off the seat vs a supercharger that has steady hp increase therefore making a bike easier to control.

Toby, thats very nice, i bet homeless will be following you to work every day waiting to get some fries

OK Triple...I kindof see where your coming from. But the motors they use are overhead-cam 4 cylinders. I've seen more guys with V-Twins using superchargers than I've seen on the 4 cylinder sport bikes. Turbo seems to be a big thing with them, and I'm sure theres good reason. These bikes are highly refined, every little change has a lot of reason, so I'm sure theres reasons for why they use turbos. One probably being it puts no drag on the crank, no belts to break, basically a simple system compared to a supercharger, in my eyes. These guys just hold on tight, I guess. Aren't superchargers more of a low-rpm thing, anyways? These bikes are definately not low rpm, ever. From launch on the 2 step, to crossin the finish line, they're tach'n.

You could always use a sport bike where a dirt bike is used. Or vise versa

Good luck with the sport bike on dirt. The dirt bike on street works. Anyone seen Supermotards? Dirt bikes with sport bike wheels/tires/brakes, pretty cool. KTM has some cool ones.

Yeah... lambo would have a hell of a time in the straights... however, I think he would catch back up in the twisties... Busa = straight-line bullet...

i wouldnt turbo charge mine unless it had a diesel powering it

i think a turbo on a jeep would be cool in a "look what i can do" sort of way, but totally impractical IMO. to each his own though

I would think the Turbo idea would be cool, it would just be the building boost problem on the rocks and trails to get the HP to kick in with the turbo, and dealing with turbo lag. Instead of good old displacement that is there when you stomp on the gas.
