In the world of high-powered motorcycles, something like the Suzuki GSX1300RR Hayabusa is highly regarded. For more than two decades, it has been one of the fastest bikes on the planet and is capable of pushing everything else on two or four wheels. With that in mind, is there any chance that the Lamborghini Aventador could hang out with the SVJ?
The third-generation Hayabusa is equipped with a 1,340 cc naturally aspired inline-four that produces a total of 190 hp at 9,700 rpm and 110 lb-ft (150 Nm) of torque at 7,000 rpm. These are memorable figures for a motorcycle and while Suzuki is far from the most powerful manufacturing bike there, it can hit 62 miles (100 km / h) in less than 3 seconds and race a quarter-mile in 10 seconds.

When the Aventador is pitted against the SVJ, there is obviously pressure on the rider to get a good launch and somehow try to match Lamborghini’s brutal launch control system. In the first race when the two move away from the line, the driver of the SVJ gets a little better launch but Suzuki does not lag too far and is able to close the gap before the quarter-mile, finally winning.
The second race was equally competitive, although the motorcyclist could not match Lamborghini. However, as the race continued, Suzuki began to reduce Aventador’s lead and claim victory, crossing the finish line in 10.4 seconds compared to the Italian supercar’s 10.7 seconds.
Rounding things off is a spinning race where, surprisingly, Suzuki achieves another victory. However, host Matt Watson rightly mentions that the SVJ can hit speeds of 217 mph (350 km / h) where the bike is limited to 186 mph (300 km / h) so in automobiles, Lambo will benefit.
