I spent the first 8 years of my life running from cops on bikes/dirtbikes/rice rockets...

in a straight line a 750cc bike will murder any NA focus..
on a turn a 1000cc bike will murder a focus in a turn to a degree....
depending on setups of both..
No cop ever caught me, even on my older Honda 1982 CB750 in the early 90s
why? not speed.. it was the agility.. traffic / turns

it will always come down to the driver and rider in the long run.

My CB1000 1989 was a beast, the nickname was "The Big One" no car ever kept up unless they were larger V8 , or a Grand National V6 turbo...

with today's bikes they have even more HP there is no car worth less then 50 grand car going to beat a Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R with the right rider.. we are talking stock.. 194 mph with 162.6 bhp
with near no weight to hold it back at like 550 lb unlike a focus, with 40 more HP then a focus.. 9.86 seconds @ 146 mph


So give me ANY 900cc Rice Rocket and any 4 banger production car under 25 grand and I would toast it on a track with the bike..

Sticky tires and knee pads required :D

to prove my point..
