Can a motorcycle stop quicker than a car? The idea behind this video is to see whether a car or a motorcycle would stop faster in an emergency situation – with driver and rider reacting as normal.
A bike is much lighter than a car, so it should stop faster, right? On the other hand, cars have four brakes, four tires (and four contact patches on the road) so perhaps they can brake faster? In this video we put that question to the test.
Using an average car (a Holden/Chevrolet Cruze) and an average bike (Kawasaki ER6-n) we see which stops quicker.
One test is stopping from a normal freeway speed of 100 kph (62 mph) and another at a suburban speed of 60 kph (37 mph).
Both vehicle have ABS brakes but no other stopping aids.
Both have near new disc brakes and tires.
That is sooo crazy. More crazyness in the next video below!
