There aren’t a lot of cars today that can match wits with a Ferrari 458 Italia. The same can be said for motorcycles, but if there’s one super bike that can hold its own against Maranello’s finest, the Suzuki Hayabusa is one of them.

The Hayabusa was at one point considered the fastest motorcycle in the world, capable of hitting a top speed of 190 mph. That number is not too far off of the 458’s own top speed of around 200 mph.

If you needed any more proof that the Hayabusa has the wheels to match up against the 458 Italia, this video posted by GTBoard will have all your answers. The video itself is pretty dated, but who cares! It’s a Ferrari 458 taking on a Suzuki Hayabusa!

That’s the kind of cross-world match-up that will get auto and bike enthusiasts lining up just to witness. The Hayabusa may have won this particular showdown, but the real winners here are those who were able to see the two machines go head-to-head.

Now, can somebody do this again in a more modern setting? We all deserve as much, right?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
