In term of raw acceleration, nothing on the road can beat a bike. Even a relatively slow sport bike can do 0-60 in about 6 seconds. On twisty road, it is much safer to push a car hard then a motorcycle hard. One rock on the road or gravel can seriously ruin a motorcyclist's day where the Z may get a little upset. After getting my bike trash by an RV turning into me, I decided that my a$$ would be safer in a car than on a bike so I bought a Z. I give up some performance for safety, AC, music, heated seat and a whole lot of safety (not to mention a very grateful mother).
