Bikes vs cars in braking

  1. A Ducati 999 may be able to stop from 60 mph in 98.6 feet, but there is no way it could stop from 120 in that distance.
    Stopping from 120 would roughly give it an average velocity of 60mph, which is 88ft/second. If the bike can stop in a distance of 98.6 feet, it must be able to come to a stop in 1.12 seconds in order to satisfy that average velocity.
    That is just simply possible.
  2. you are a #$%#ing moron
  3. What it takes to stop to zero isn't that interresting if we are at a track where the typical braking situations are like 300 km/h to 100 km/h or perhaps 50 km/h.

    A fast sports motorcycle are about as fast as the car "Radical", which beats Porsches, Lamborghinis and so on. The only thing they have some trouble with is high speeds.
