0 too 124 in 18.5 seconds?!

That is pretty slow gentlemen. Puts us neck and neck with a BMW M Roadster and almost 5 seconds off a new 4 door 5,000 lb mercedes 600s.

I gotta hope they are wrong.

Okay, for those who can't see the numbers:

0-62 mph 4.1 sec

0-124 mph 18.5 sec

Tested in german magazine Motorrad.

I'm rather surprised myself, but comparing it to a Street Rod it is probably correct. The Street Rod does 0-124 mph in 14.5 sec. Looking at the weight numbers we see that the Street Rod weighs 628lbs and the M109 weighs 767lbs filled up with gas, oil and water. The hp for the Street Rod and the M109 is the same, but the M109 weighs 22% more. The difference in acceleration is ~27% so it looks pretty correct, even though a time around 17.5 sec is probably possible.

Like I said elsewhere, I don't know why everyone loves this bike, mine feels like it is attached to the Titanic's anchor! Now here's the proof. ;)

There is no way in the wide world that is bike takes 18.5 s to go 124 mph...if that is what they report they there are at least two versions of the 109 that are being sold and I don't have the 18.5 s 124mpg slug that was tested...thank God! :D
