Its a dumb squid question i know, but this guy at my work keeps talkin on how he would beat my 600rr and ****. I tell him i will bet him any amount of money he wants but of course he has a million excuses. Just how bad with equal riders would he get smoked? I cant find anything online to show him he doesnt know what he is talking about, he just keeps telling me his engine is twice the size (1200) bla bla bla

its really not even a race a couple of my buddies have 1200 sportsters and while they are "quick" for a harley its no comparison to a sport bike. air cooled engines will always have a handicap to a liquid cooled engine no matter was the displacement. tell him youll race youll smoke him...

a harley weighs twice as much so it needs twice the engine to go half as fast! :bitch_pletheir not performance bikes period!!

by his logic, a tractor trailer will outrun a corvete because the engine is larger!

Magazine test numbers put a new 600rr at around mid 10's in the 1/4, and sportsters at mid 13's.
So not even close.
not just the new rr's but the 03-08 rr's are all mid ten second bikes...what a fool to think he can beat you. His bike = steel, your's = plastic. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out who has the best power/weight ratio!

What about his sportster v. a ninja 250?

This is my favorite site for consulting bike specs:

http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/h-d/harley_davidson_xl1200C 04.htm
His bike only pushes 59hp and weights 539lbs! So...your bike is half the weight of his and has about more than half the HP of his. LOL

edit: I found this one too: http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/h-d/harley_davidson_xl_1200lsportste 06.htm

This one weighs less than the RR with 1200cc's! Yikes...must be some kind of mistake b/c look at this http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/h-d/harley_davidson_xl1200R 07.htm and this is 553lbs for the similar bike
