Please stick to the topic, which is EASIER, not which is quicker on track.

Personally I'd love to see Comet vs CR-V.




FYI, your precious HONDA SBKs couldn't lap a Yamaha RX100 on track, so stop tom-tomming. We all respect Honda engineering, but I'm not so sure about you...or your name would be Blackbird, not BUSA, which FYI is a I4 1300 from Suzuki, just like the Swift and the Esteem.

Jeez...get a life....
Geez these Baleno ? Maruti boys are always ready to pounce on innocent souls. I meant the bikes wont be a match for the Honda cars( and i didnot mean bikes i meant CRV and OHC VTEC) If you wish put a RD350 vs Baleno and you know who is going to win. Point is bikes are fast in straight line but not on a track. And about the BUSA, your knowledge seems limited..

If I offended you, my apologies. I meant no harm.

As far as I know, the Hayabusa has a 1299 cc inline 4 made by Suzuki. The Maruti Suzuki Esteem/Suzuki Cultus have a 1298 cc inline 4 made by Suzuki. That was my only point.

I owned a RD350 when I was 18-19... LOL... I used to call her "YamRaj" for a reason... That reason was/ is that it's sure easier to lose a limb or kill yourself on a bike. Keeping that in mind, I say bikes are easier when it comes to reaching the hospital/ hell... No, none of us are going to heaven (God and me had a discussion on this one), sorry

Guys chill, bikes have les gizmos so less price and more BHP from smaller engine. Cars are heavier so they need bigger engines.
Bikes are easier then cars anyday.

P.S any one seen JCs video of the Airel Atom. If yes you can see what Shan means. They raced the atom with a Honda CBR 600RR and of the line the bike was a tidy bit faster, but under breaking at the first corner the Atom slide past and then it really was the case of goodbye Mr. Bond. Through the bend the bike never stood a chance and even down the long back straight upto a 120miles per hour it couldnot keep up. But the time the Atom crossed the line the gap had widened to a massive four secs. That was on a small track in which Atom took 28secs to cover wheras the bike took 32secs. Now on a normal track that would be 20secs. Period.

Yes busa, you're simply repeating whats been said already. We all agree that a car is faster around a circuit.

Strange, but most people who say that either have not ridden or barely ridden a bike...

Busa, come pillion with me on the 26th Jan meet. i think you'll change your mind after that.

Its 'cos the orginal question was as to which requires less skill in day to day running. And then people brought in power, weight and track. This i feel confused a lot of people, i guess.

Ok, lets get back to the topic then.

I still say bikes are easier to manage in day to day commuting.

I would say the Baleno would win. The bike might be able to hit the ton faster, but after that the car would take over.
