Yes it is.

As a safety measure Ganesha overrides ABS/ESP/EBD/Airbags. Those are there just in case he's busy with someone else.

Speedo Read of 150 MPH on some Highway in the state of pensylvania, not as many cops there, or even cars are not vivible for miles as you drive on the highways and lovely long curves along a river, It was my cousin's husband's car, me and my bro took out for a spin, I think what I clocked was a little excess of 240 KMPH, it's a lovely car but felt like going out of hand at that speed, maybe it was my first time at tht speed, so it was psychological.

Elder bro is a member at Kansas City Speedway, so he has done abt 180 MPH on a Nascar car bcos he was a rookie, the actual racers are allowed to go above 180.

OOPS ! Almost forgot, I have seen 260 + KMPH on a 929 Fireblade, one of my friend's cousin's bike, Sarjahpur Outer Ring Road, but that was blinding fast, have riden Cbr 600s a lot but this was a class of its own,BEAST, slight powerslide on each gear shift, 125 on the first gear comes in a whiff ! Did not wanna push it any further than 260 as it was not my bike, and friend sitting behind had his palms pressed on the tank and was sticking to me for dear life, Even my palms wud sweat if anyone else rode that fast and me sitting behind, even if it is Rossi riding.
I wish we could ride bikes on the Mumbai Pune Expressway, wud have riden down with a group just to ride on that road, sarjahpur ring road has slight bumps and at that speed gets very very scary !
Have never riden an R1 or Busa, will do when Destiny permits !

I have sat as a Pillion on a Yamaha R6 at 240 kmph on the greater noida expressway, delhi... and it was dammmmmmm sacry! I was hanging on for my dear life, pillion on a superbike is perhaps the most frightening and uncomfortable experience on 2 wheels.... riding is pure nirvaana!

155mph (249.55kmph) friends E46 M3 on route 66 somewhere between Oklahoma city and Amarillo, this speed was maintained for about 10secs then eased off, too many speed traps
