It's not unlikely that a lighter cruiser/chopper style bike like that will keep up or even beat a sport bike in that early part of a race. Due to the wheel base and weight, they can keep the wheels planted to the ground. And due to v-twin torque, they're pretty mean in the low end compared to higher compression sport bikes.

IF i remember correct, ive seen this on a dutch motorcycle forum posted by the rider of the 1krr.
The Chopper is not stock at all, it's a complete build engine with a lot off power.

I'll see if i can find some more info on it.

What the heck are they talking about , 1 block race ? First race even looked like the bike caught him anyway but it's hard to see.

But geez, against a bike geared for 150+ , he's not even half way thru first gear, trying to keep the wheel down at 1/2 throttle at most.

You know I could out run a Lamborgini on foot for about 10/15 feet at least.


Stupid youtube dolts.

Actually I think its legit. it is a yamasuki after all but really when you can shift through 3 gears before the other guy gets through 1/2 of his first. the torque is on your side to begin with. All that guy had to say was see you in twisties and that'll shut up pretty much any cruiser. All in all, classic case of the rider not the bike.
