The King of all drag races

What happens when you take the world’s fastest production bike, the Kawasaki H2R and put it up against a series of the fastest production cars in the world? Then why not throw in a car vs. fighter jet race as well?

It’s the battle of the big ones! Car vs. bike drag races are pretty much always walk-overs for the bikes but it’s rare we get to see races between such incredibly exotic machinery and the results don’t always go the bike’s way.

Round 1: H2R vs. McLaren MP4-12C
First strike to the bike

In this video, the worlds fastest production motorbike, the Kawasaki H2R, hits the runway against a McLaren MP4-12C, a Bugatti Veyron, a Nissan GTR HP SPE with over 1300bhp and a Lamborghini Aventador.

Over 200mph
This on a bike that is available for anyone to buy: that’s not even the top speed!

At the end, an F16 fighter jet is brought out to play but that only does a run agains the Aventador, which is a shame as we’d love to see it in action against the F16.

Round 2: H2R vs. Bugatti Veyron
Closer, but the bike still edges it

As always, the main problem for the bike is getting all its power down onto the track through a ridiculously small tyre contact patch, while all the cars have four-wheel drive for impressive traction. However, the bike weighs many times less than all the cars so its power-to-weight ratio is much better.

All goes according to the script until the Nissan GTR comes to the line.

Round 3: H2R vs. Nissan GTR
Bike gets the jump off the line but half way down the strip, the 1350bhp of the Nissan shows its hand for the win

It’s not the greatest quality video but at least there’s no long pre-amble to get in the way of the action. Not sure what the video game bit at the end is, but you can turn off when that happens.
