Motorcycle versus car drag race videos tend to be at least somewhat pointless. The huge disparity in power to weight ratios makes nearly every one of them a foregone conclusion. But this is a slightly different take on the whole thing. For one, the car is a Bugatti Veyron, a car that’s a bit faster than most. In addition it’s a half-mile race instead of a quarter-mile, and the two vehicles are taking off from 50mph rolling starts. This puts the two closer to reaching their top speeds, where the Bugatti has the advantage.

Except that the bike is a Kawasaki Ninja H2R, an absolute beast of a machine with 300 supercharged horsepower all wrapped in carbon fiber. The bike has a theoretical top speed of 250-260mph (still not quite as fast as the Bugatti, but pretty close) although nobody has actually taken one there yet. The H2R is technically a track bike, and not street legal, meaning that something like an Ariel Atom would have been a more appropriate match, but why nitpick when you could just sit back and enjoy a crazy fast drag race.
