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
