0-60

So I keep telling people that my 959 is faster than "most" sports car on a drag for 0-60, my argument comes from the results I've seen online for 899.

Has anyone tried/tested 0-60 on the 959?

Also how would one test this? I am not a believer in visual timkeeping.

Thanks Guys!

0-60 is highly dependent on execution, so its highly based on rider skill.

I watched one of my helmet cam vids from a dig once and got a ~3.5 second 0-60 without really trying (I'm not too comfortable on launches yet). Here's a list of cars in the 3 second 0-60 range.

I don't practice my launch control, but I do know the bike is super quick from the start with stock gearing. In the right hands and set up for a straight line, my guess is 2.4 - 2.8 seconds 0-60

I know wikipedia should never be a reliable source but the page List of fastest production motorcycles by acceleration puts the 899 at 2.7 seconds. The 959 should be the same or slightly better? That's some elite company nevertheless.

I find it mind blowing that the 1299s is at the bottom of the list, the 899 is at the top, and the 959 is nowhere to be found.

Im surprised at the 1299s because I would just think that would be faster, and im surprised there isnt a 959 because its not like the bike is all that new anymore.

Take this list with a grain of salt. The 250hp or whatever H2 and H2R are not even on the list. However, I do find it cool that our bikes are in the reckoning. Unless you go upto the H2R, the 1299 or the S1000RR there's not a lot of bikes we can upgrade to.

That's a much longer list than I expected

There's a lot of supercars on there though and also that database is based on data from a long history so there's overlap (probably) between models.

Ah true that makes sense. The Tesla P100d needs to be up there soon then, 2.5 seconds apparently
