Slightly scratched up, of course.

Default WWWHHHHAAAATTTTTT!!!!??????

what the H-E-Double-Toothpicks do you mean, "Image neither"....???



If I'm not mistaken, the entire Chrome and Do-Rag industry are at least to some degree dependent on "Image"......

Default Here's the ticket....

Build a little 250 scooter, put a fat rear rim on it with a sticky slick, build the motor to run Nitro, and really make him look like $hi+....



The possibilities are endless....

Zero to 60, on any superbike, happens in first gear. It also happens so fast you hardly know what's going on. On a literbike, just in the time it takes to glance down and let your eyes refocus on your instruments, you've hit 90mph, still in first gear.



At this, the very earliest part of a vehichle's accelleration curve, it will all depend upon reaction time and finesse. A calm rider with good starts, good clutch control will be able to smoke the Bugatti driver who will likely have a hard time finessing that car.



Once you've raced a little you'll understand this so well. You always see hotblooded, nervous guys with more powerful bikes looping out, wheelying, backing off, while smoother, steely-eyed veterans on less powerful bikes beat them to the first turn.



At any rate, if starts were perfectly executed by conummate professionals, the 0-60 times of a Bugatti would be very close against any good sport bike: 999, GSXR750, CBR1000RR, whatever. It's hard to say which would "win". The significant fact is that they would be so close as to be effectively even in this regard. To differentiate, you'd have to look at other characteristics, and then you'd find vast differences between the machines.

Be happy you live in a neighborhood where a guy can buy a 1.2M car. Ride what you want and BBQ at the guys house.
