I Ride: 2015 Panigale R and 2018 1299rFE
I am sure a lot of this comes down to the rider.
That GSXR was kicking but for a while

Probably - although the V4S seemed to have the power even when it didn't have the greatest start.

Maybe the worst drag video by a professional mob i've ever seen lol. No numbers, times, or mph to show
which is capable of being the fastest.

I appreciate that you linked it though OP. Fastbikes magazine used to be ace.


Btw im cursing how we dont get that gsxr color scheme in oz.

yes, it is not really a fair comparison, but it looked like fun for these guys

I liked the fact they started with the fireblade against a zx-6r
as if "let's give this guy a chance to look better than he is"

Does anybody really care? These "tests" are so subjective and the variables too great to really be relied on as a measure of which machine is quicker. A lot comes down to the rider, his weight, his reaction time, clutch engagement, tyre condition and traction on the day, temperature, elevation, blah, blah, blah. The one comment that is right was that this used to be a good magazine when Colin Schiller was it's original editor and one Shakey Byrne was one of their journalists. Now it's nothing more than a tabloid with glossy pages.

I think this is just a clip from their ultimate sportbike 2019 tests. Maybe the final product will actually be more informative. I think they just wanted to put a "fun" video out there
