THE NUMBERS spin round like a one-armed Bandit in a Vegas Casino... Note the Motec Dash, with a GPS-calibrated speed readout. It *only* hits 267mph on this video, the bike touched 272mph on the same day. Note the wobbles from wheelspin at 237mph-ish, and try to imagine how that felt from the rider's seat...
