Wrong again... The R6 tops out at 162MPH. The R6 is the top 600cc bike in handling and acceleration not top speed. Then there are other big bore bikes like 750cc, 900cc, 800cc, 1000cc, 1300cc that have a even higher top speed.
But when you are racing a bike you'll never get to top speed contest because it will blow you away in the acceleration and be far ahead before any of you reach the top speed.

Ah.. but an R6 tops out at about 145 if I'm not mistaken... R6 WAS the hot bike last year and if it can only top out at 145, what will an older bike do... 120, 125, 130, ect. I beleive this story to be valid. Plus I'm scared $hitless at about 80 on a bike, I can't imagine what 120 feels like!

They were either first time riders or they weren't racing you. The M3 does not even come close to a bike in acceleration. My stock R6 does 1/4 mi in high 10s. enough said.
