This is a quote taken from username "MadDuck" on the BMW Sport Touring Forum.hdf said:Is this the same class a Hayabusa or ZX12 would run in? If so, I thought everyone always said that these bikes had greater top end speed.
So what gives?
But... Prostate Grey is still the fastest color.MadDuck said:The record is an FIM record. SCTA records for the class the k1200s is in are over 200 mph, hayabusa. There are three LSR setting bodies. The international body is the FIM. The fast records at Bonneville are all SCTA records. The sanctioning bodies for what is normally thought of as "Bonneville" records are the SCTA and USFRA. Two years ago BUBs started a new event with prize money to establish AMA records at Bonneville. So in any given class there are three records which can be set at "Bonneville". FIM rule are different from SCTA and AMA. Cost is considerably higher for an FIM record. SCTA records are significantly faster and much more dilligently defended, faster is better.

I'm sure that the Hayabusa and the ZX12R could best that top speed. But as someone stated in an earlier post, there must be some sort of barrier to admission. I'm sure it must cost a good amount of money and paperwork to run in one these WLSR events. BMW riders usually don't have a problem putting their money where their mouth is.hdf said:The article indicates that the bike set the record in the following class:
"the 1000 - 1350 cc stock, partially streamlined, naturally aspirated motorcycle class"
