Video: McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 vs Ducati 1199 Superleggera

If you’re looking for guaranteed YouTube traffic then pitching a Hypercar up against a super ‘exclusive’ bike is pretty much nailed-on to bring it.

The thing is… It’s always too easy to predict.

  1. The bike will always accelerate fastest – nothing can beat the power/weight ratio of a motorcycle at its finest.
  2. Eventually – because of the gentleman’s agreement between the manufacturers – the bike will stop at an indicated 186mph, so cars allowed to run alongside it will always hit a higher top speed.

What you need for a true test is to have bikes race against cars on a lapped course over a set duration.

Maybe one day on MotoFire we’ll do that…?

    Cool video. Can’t wait to see these vids when the street version of the Kawa H2 is released, provided they don’t neuter it too much…

    Sadly we can’t take the praise for this video but we sure do agree, it is cool. The Kawasaki H2 versus a car would be awesome but as you say, as long as its not restricted by electronics, lets hope not!
