a motorcycle should be able to achieve a slightly higher speed but not much unless launched high on the sky were there are much air mass

So a heavier object with a similar surface area would hit a higher terminal velocity than a human body...

I'm willing to bet the extra 200-300lbs of metal on your 650 with the similar surface area to a spread eagled human means it'd get going a lot faster.

Didn't that guy that jumped from space break the sound barrier?

That was because he was so high up the air was significantly thinner. Less density means less molecules put square foot to resist your motion. That's why he tumbled at first because there was not enough pushing back on him for him to stabilize.

So theoretically, the 650 could break the 130mph wall if dropped from that same height. And that's still relatively close to earth in the grand scheme of things because earth is just one tiny blue pixel....but is it fast enough to out run an EMP????

This is beginning to look like Pulp Fiction. All these different threads and subplots are starting to merge together.

The 650 is deffinetely a great daily rider that manages to keep up with the SSs on the street, the 1000s however I can't keep up with

Edit: do you guys think that if get an exhaust and a juice box the 650 would break the 130 mph wall ?
So in other words you havent ridden the N1K

How do you know the N1K or 636 arent better bikes if you havent ridden them

Depending on the county and department, some can't even give chase to a bike or vehicle in that case for a traffic citation.
