700 RWHP 2010 SS VS 08 yamaha r1

Title says it. A buddy of mine and myself were talking as he has a 08 R1 with a slip-on and a basic tune from a power commander. My cars built and blown and makes 700rwhp.
From a roll on the highway at like 60 mph who would win?

I'm thinking it would be pretty close, I have destroyed r6's in the past but who knows. My cars a LS3 with 3.45's in the rear.

it could be a close one....but I think the R1 may get you by a hair. I also have an R1 and they are pretty darn fast.....an R6 is slow in comparison to the R1. Just my thoughts. FWIW.
on another note......sounds like you have a very Stout Camaro though!

R1, they can trap in the 140 range with a good 170 lb rider. My stock 2011 gsxr 750 traps 135, only mods are strapped front end and 1 down front sprocket. Has about 30 less whp then a stock 08 r1 as well. Good luck

He'd beat you no prob!! 700hp on a car is not enough to hang with those guys!

You'd need to be around a 1000+ WHP to play with bikes like the R1.

The R1 should be faster, but rider ability comes into play big time on bikes that fast.

Also People need to not put a blanket statement on it will take 1000 whp to beat a bike. There are 700 whp hondas that trap 150+ do to there weight. But yes as for the camaro it will take prolly 800 to hang and 1000 to beat them. Also with the less hp on a bike weight really effects its acceleration big time. The difference in a 20 lb rider with the same skill can be quite a big difference. My buddie has a 170+ whp zx10 and only can run a 10.1 to my 10.4 on my 125whp bike. He weighs 240 to my 165.

I weighed 220 when I had a 152whp 02 GSXR1000.

My first ever run down the track was a 10.28 @ 128 mph with a 2.6 60ft time.

Your friend can't ride a bike at all.

Yea your talking through your teeth there buddie. His 60 foots are 1.70-1.75 consistant with traps of 138-141. Even my runs my fastest 60 was 1.78, ran 10.46 at 133. I think you should remember harder what you ran.

I will never forget that first run. I had been down the track many many times in my car. I remember laughing so hard at the timeslip because I had a 2.6 second 60ft time and still ran low 10s.

my second run went into the 9s @ 148 mph.

If he was on a liter bike esp. zx10 since it is the fastest of the liter bikes besides te 1000rr BMW and he shld have easily gotten at least low 9s out of that

I should clarify my back wasn't stock. And being lowered that helped a lot in the 60ft. Once I got enough seat time on the bike I was able to run consistent 1.5 60ft times.

10.1 is SLOW on a liter bike though.


edit: bike not back. good lord.

I know it's slow, but around here the da is seldom below 2000 foot in the summer. And on top of his weight and stock wheel base it actually a good time. He is usually top three swb at the track.
