14.5 seconds - i found these specs -  

 

 

2009 Focus 1,6L

 

5 speed 1290kgs 116PS/114Hp 160Nm/ 118ft-lbs at 4250rpm

 

0-60mph- 11.6secs 0-100mph-36.6secs. - top speed 116mph

 

50-70mph in top (5th) 14.5secs

 

Alll offroad/ on the autobahn, of course!

 

Not the quickest car on the road but close to the Dodge Viper 50-70mph in top! - i will add it to the list  

 

 

 

A life-time wait as I expected, but I wonder how quick it could do it if you dropped down a cog.

9.6secs in 4th or 6.5secs "flat out"/ through-the-gears (50-70mph) 

 

Edit - On mine the 50-70 mph is 4.64secs in 4th and 4.29 in 3rd/ its interesting how the diesel  does not get much quicker in the lower gears, the 50-70mph in top of the modified, turbocharged 2.0L diesel Mondeo is quicker than the 50-70mph of the NA 1.6L Focus, even if the Focus is "redlining" it through the gears

Does wherever your getting these stats do bike figures?
I'd like to see how my one fares against some of these motors!

What bike is it? 

 

9 times out of 10 a bike is a lot quicker than a car, even a realatively low- powered BMW bike has some astonishing figures, there is a drag strip in Crail, Scotland, they race cars and bikes at the same meeting, the bikes beat 800Hp GTRs and 600Hp EVOs, by a big margin some of the bikes are doing sub 9 second times and reaching 130mph in the 1/4 mile  

 

On the other hand i was following a bike the other day, it was wet and we were going onto a motorway via a tight left-hander, i could get the power down a lot earlier than the bike, so i was coming out of the corner 20mph faster than the bike, i had to lift off to stop running into the back of it, much to my surprise (and probably his!) ok so it might have been a crap rider, but i dont think the bike could have cornered as fast as the car in the wet the car has a lot more rubber on the road, helps on the brakes, and off the line ("launch") of course, once the bike gets going it will be quicker than a car - bikes and cars are very different, and i don't think you can really compare them (i used to ride bikes and tuned road and race bikes) its been a long time since i was last on a bike, though

Its a 2012 Street triple R.

 

Your Bang on there. If its dry and warm, 9 times out of ten a bike is quicker. As soon as it rains or the temp drops to the point where the tyres cant heat up properly, the bike is slower. My dad had a set of Pilot Road 3's on his last bike. Seriously impressive in the wet! and the newer Pilot road 4 is supposed to be even better. You'll never get your knee down, but tyre technology has moved on massively in the last 10 years or so. You'd be impressed if you've been off of bikes for a while.

 

Just to prove your point, I managed to get in front (and stay in front!) of an Audi R8 on a 2007 R6 in the dry. I couldn't get past a guy in a diesel mondeo on a Daytona 955i in the rain....

 

I was just curious how the figures looked. Your right, there is no comparison between cars and bikes!
