The ugly truth about Super Sport Motorcycles

The ugly truth about Super Sport Motorcycles


Damas y caballeros, bienvenidos a otro video de HeroRR. Éste es un video que, de verdad, no quería hacer. Ésta es la grande y fea verdad sobre las motos deportivas. …y, más específicamente, “super” motos deportivas. Ahora, estoy seguro de que muchos de ustedes ya sabían, pero han olvidado, …que las motos deportivas son las más rápidas y peligrosas que puedan montar. Casi todas las super deportivas de 600cc iran de 0 a 100km/h en mas o menos 3.5 segundos. …y tendrán una velocidad máxima de mas o menos 265km/h Y una vez que empiezas a hablar de las motos de 1 litro, comienzas a ver que esos números de 0-100km/h van de 3.5s a mas o menos 2.8s …y con sus velocidad máximas limitadas a 300km/h Sí, correcto, LIMITADAS. Muchas de estas motos de 1 litro, como la Kawasaki Ninja H2, que es una SUPER moto de US$ 25,000, supercargada, y con un motor de 1000cc, Irían a más de 320km/h con un simple “flasheo” de ECU. Para poner estas cifras en perspectiva, el Nissan GTR de US$ 110,000 tiene una velocidad máxima de 315km/h, … y va de 0 a 100km/h en 2.9 segundos. Incluso tu super moto más básica, promedio, de 1000cc y de 8 años de antigüedad en Craigslist, … como, por ejemplo, una Yamaha R1 del 2009, destruiría prácticamente cualquier auto de fábrica de US$ 100,000 o menos, … e incluso muchos de más que eso. Las super motos deportivas son estupidamente rápidas, lo que es divertido, pero como sabemos también son bastante peligrosas. Tienes 2 peligros mayores en el camino; 1, chocar. Chocar en una moto puede fácilmente acabar con tu vida, porque no tienes una jaula que te proteja, no tienes un sistema de bolsas de aire, …no tienes protección anti-vuelco… No, tienes simplemente tu casco y lo que sea que llevases puesto ese día. Es por esto que la mayoría de los choques a alta velocidad en una moto resulta en una fatalidad. Segundo, tenemos a la policía. Tómate un minuto para mirar esta moto. Esta es una BMW S1000RR, una de las motos “top de línea” de 1 litro. Ahora, imagina que eres un policía y ves a alguien pasando en esta moto. Es probable que tú, como policía, vas a poner atención “extra” mirando esta moto, y viendo qué va a hacer. Éste es un problema para muchos de nosotros. Nunca he sido detenido en mi auto, a pesar de ir a exceso de velocidad justo al pasar al lado de policías. Supongo que los policías no ven las Toyota Rav 4 como una amenaza. Sin embargo, he sido detenido muchas veces en mi moto, incluso sin yo haber hecho nada mal. … incluso yendo bajo el límite de velocidad. Las super motos deportivas están diseñadas para ir lo más rápido posible en una pista. Son, literalmente, motos de carrera con luces. Por eso, son super incómodas, no les gusta ir lento, así que te hacen ir super rápido y conducir como un idiota. Ahora, obviamente puedes ir a trabajar en una moto. Yo lo he hecho y, aunque sí funciona, definitivamente NO es la mejor opción. Es como intentar golpear un clavo con una llave inglesa; puedes hacerlo, pero vas a estar exhausto y probablemente con dolor después. “Canyon Carving” es lo más divertido que puedes hacer en una moto de calle. Es por eso que algunos caminos, como “La Cola del Dragón” (US-129) son tan populares. Es ondulante y divertida para pasear. Sin embargo, éste es EL tipo de conducción más peligroso que puedes hacer. Dato curioso: ¿sabes cuál es la causa más común de choques en motocicleta? Se acabó el tiempo. Lo siento, no es un auto virando a la izquierda en frente de ti. Esa es la causa más común involucrando un auto. Pero la causa más común es; un motociclista juzgando mal una esquina, o algo saliendo mal mientras va virando en una esquina. …Y tiene sentido, también. Piénsalo, mira una lista de todas las cosas que pueden causar un problema en una esquina. Tienes: grava, arena, aceite, escombros, viraje muy agresivo, presionar los frenos accidentalmente, acelerar mucho accidentalmente, …fijar la mirada en un punto, animales saltando en frente de ti, autos detenidos repentinamente en el otro lado de la esquina, otros vehículos pasándose a tu pista, … caca, hojas, agua, líneas de alquitrán, baches, animales muertos en la calle, pasto cortado, Demonios, incluso si la calle no está lo suficientemente caliente puedes perder tracción. Estoy seguro de que entiendes el punto. De verdad que no se trata de habilidad cuando vas virando rápido en esquinas de la calle. Lo que de verdad importa es qué tan valiente o, mejor dicho, “estúpido” eres para seguir “empujando” los límites, y tentando tu suerte, …porque adivina; al final tu suerte se va a acabar y vas a caer. Es por esto que toda protección, todo el tiempo, es muy crucial para nosotros que gustamos de conducir en calles ondulantes. Recuerde chicos, hay PISTAS, y ese es el único lugar en el que deberían volverse locos en las esquinas. Ahora hablemos de las corridas a máxima velocidad en la autopista. Zigzaguear entre autos es divertido, lo he hecho. Pero, de nuevo, solo hace falta que una persona se cambie de pista y tu vida se acaba. ¿De verdad lo vale? Quizás no estoy siendo justo, porque la gente hace este tipo de locuras en todo tipo de motocicletas. Pero tenemos que reconocer que la mayoría de las super deportivas allá fuera… …están empujando sus límites mucho más que otros tipos de motocicletas. Y no es que sea solo yo hablando por mi culo, tampoco. Éste es un hecho estadístico. ¿Por qué crees que las super deportivas cuestan tanto para asegurar? Diré esto; una característica a favor de las super deportivas es que son simplemente preciosas. Digo, mira estas motos; son absolutamente hermosas. Sin embargo, en el otro lado, podrías estar pensando que tener una podría facilmente atraer atención de las chicas, …y sí, tendrás un poco más de atención, pero no será nada del otro mundo. Estarás mejor simplemente yendo al gimnasio y poniéndote en forma si quieres conocer mujeres. Las motos te ayudan a conocer mujeres, pero no es una solución mágica para todos tus problemas con mujeres. Y quiero que sepas que aunque las super deportivas son hermosas, nada de eso importa cuando enciendes las luces, te subes y comienzas a rodar. Especialmente una hora después cuando tu espalda te está matando… Así que ese es mi argumento: aunque las super deportivas son motos muy hermosas, son seriamente peligrosas. Atraen mucho más “mala” que “buena” atención, y son muy incómodas. El único lugar en el que brillan y rinden mejor que otras motos es en pistas. Así que podrías preguntar “¿cuál es la solución?” Bueno, yo pienso que hay otra dimensión completa ahí afuera que nosostros, motociclistas de motos de calle, aún tenemos que considerar… …que seriamente merece nuestra atención. Y bueno, chicos, espero que les haya gustado mi video. Si les gustó y quieren ayudar, entonces, por favor, den un “me gusta” y suscribanse. Significaría mucho para mí si me pudiesen seguir en Instagram, también. Soy Instagram/TheHeroRR Gracias, y que tengan un buen día. Bye bye.

  1. I want you all to understand that I have a CBR600RR, I've put more miles on super sports than I have on any other type of motorcycle. I have, and always will have a certain love for those rockets. But I must admit that with my experience of multiple close calls, and issues with law enforcement I have to admit that it's no longer worth it. Not saying I'm getting rid of my super sport, cause I'm not. I'm just trying to show you guys that there is more to riding than going 150 MPH and dragging knee. We can go out and have a really fun time without putting ourselves and others at risk.

  2. It is all truth that Super sport bikes are the most dangerous but its not about a machine its about a rider if youre not a guy that will just wheelie or drag a knee you should be fine because super sport motorcycles are the most technologically advanced motorcyles

  3. I own a 2015 zx14r. It is one of the fastest bikes on the planet…however, I must impress that everything you mentioned is Soo true..with power comes respect…wether it's a 300cc starter or a hyper bike…it's all about everything you mentioned…alot of people choose the wrong bike for the wrong reasons .. and you're right..it takes more than hot bike to get a girl..but the 14 does get alot of attention ..thankyou for educating …it breaks my heart to see a 18 yr old on the news killed on a liter bike..I worked my way up to the 14..started on ninja 250..( showing my age). Then a couple of cbr600s along the way..a Gixxer 1000…hyabusa..then I graduated to 14.. I would have have the visa. But the 14 is suited better for me because it's more sport touring oriented and I didn't want the concourse..lol..anyways keep doing what you're doing. ..we need more like you educating..Pura vida!

  4. Here in the UK the Police are sympathetic to bikers. Ive been stopped 3 times for riding to fast. It was a friendly chat to get me to slow down, to save my life, they were right. This may not be everyones point of view.

  5. nothing more liberating tnan the track!!!! 1st race ur not fast. take some race schools,great community. all racers willing to help.

  6. I bought a cbr600rr recently after selling my fz09. Racebike. Racebike. Stickers, racing, and racebike. Absolute animal

  7. just because you’re a pussy doesn’t mean you have to try and get everyone else to follow your wave. go fuck yourself

  8. I used to say for my Moto collection- a v-twin a Grand-tourer my V-4 muscle bike Madura 1200 a Sports bike and maybe a Ret.bmw police bike. At one point I had all them not at the same time but still it was fun having different bike types. Now I don’t care to keep a Sports bike in my “ stable” just to temping. But if I were promised I’d make it home safe I’d ride a sport bike all the time but ya that’s now how life works.

  9. It's a good video and everything you said is 100% true. For my personal tastes I would rather choose a bike that's a "Sport Touring" style since they are something where you can take the wife along on a road trip in pretty good comfort, and when you want to go one up you easily remove the luggage and will still enjoy a fairly high powered ride.

    Of course I'm older (67 years) and am just getting back into biking after 30 years away from it, so wanting a decent sized bike that's a bit sporty and not going to kill me on price and insurance I went with a well used, but still very nice '88 Suzuki Katana 1100.

    That's not going to beat even a midsized new crotch rocket, but at the end of the day if I'm taking a long trip I know which I'd rather be on, and lets be honest, most sport touring bikes are no slouch when you decide you want to move.

  10. I’ve been riding Supersport a since my first one, a brand new GSXR600 in 2003. And before that it was dual sports. I’ve been riding sport bikes 16 years and have been down 5 times. Twice semi serious. I’m now 40 and just bought a brand new CBR600. I still go fast in the corners but for the most part just cruise around. I’m a “form over function” type of dude. I love the way they look and have put so many miles on them that I don’t even notice that they’re uncomfortable anymore. I agree with everything stated on this video however.

  11. Really you shouldn't be having pain when you ride with the exception of a hard seat bothering your ass after an hour. Get cushion seat like a Saddleman or Corbin and practice proper form and you shouldn't be having pain issues unless you have health issues causing it.

  12. Your narrative is total propaganda.You sound like somebody's mother.If a cop is staring at your crotch rocket BMW it's because he likes it.Ive had the police come over and look at mine while I'm cleaning it.When it's parked outside of a motel room! As far as the general public goes…….you put a 200 plus h.p
    motorcycle anywhere and people are going to come over and marvel at it.
    You sound like some very screwed up feminist telling me how toxic my masculinity is because I'm thank god,different then she is.Whats next for you?The only weapons we can own are b.b guns???Now obviously you don't want a 214. h.p. Ducati in NYC.
    But if you live in most parts of Texas that's not gonna be a problem.

  13. Lord
    I ride to work 50min in and then back home 100miles a day its not that bad? My back don't kill me if anything my butt just wants to readjust and toes start to numb but if I just change foot position ahead of time I'm fine idk if it just me but I rather ride then take my car in I've already put over 8k and just got the bike in April lol 3 months ago.

  14. I just want a beginner motorcycle, imma get one on me next birthday. Either a Ninja 300 or a YZF R3.

    And to be completely honest I want a literbike because they look hella cool and neat. Unlike the others, in my opinion of course.

  15. Lol the Fz 09 is the perfect street bike Imo… i have one and an R6 I plan on selling the R6 later this year and im going to buy a used YZ450F and make it street legal with some battery operated lights ( wanna keep it track ready and take all the street legal nonsense off in 5 mins

  16. I said it before and Ill say it again. Only a mad man can buy and ride a supersport/superbike. And I am one of them. Yes I risk my life everytime I get on the bike, but the feeling of ripping the gears and the sheer joy it brings is unparalleled.

  17. if you are a pussy Go buy a Tesla ride with 20mph and go to sleep…and be carefull dont go outside maybe will. be someone Who will kill you or a car will hit you or maybe a lightning Strike will kill you.. is better to Stay home and be safe..pussys … Live your life at 100% every time

  18. In Germany it's the other way round Supermotos and Enduros are number one target for the police a 2010 yamaha r1 is as interesting as a Toyota Raf4 and a BMW 1000RR as interest as a new BMW 340i

  19. I been riding sport bikes and racing them for 20 years i seen more falls on the track…on the street only noobs and retards fall.

  20. I have to disagree. A 600cc sport bike has superior breaking, visibility, corner handling, stability, basically everything to any other type of bike. And the first 5-6000 rpm they're actually pretty slow.

  21. Ride safe, think about your mental condition: don’t take too much caffeine, sleep enough, be relaxed in general, otherwise it will be very easy to burst the gas open at every open spot you find. But that also decrease the attention threshold. Beware

  22. The statistics might be true but the propaganda might be false, let’s not talk about acceleration but maneuverability and braking specs, owning a gsxz750 & CBR600rr, riding R6’s R’1s the list goes on, Harley RoadKings, Street Cruisers volcom, shadows, BMW’s (are legit) v-twin Firebolts if you wanna ride a Sports Bikes #Jack of all Trades, limited to 1 1/2hr commuters or just pin it for 20min I prefer no passengers btw I like the video editing good pictures

  23. Nothing you said in this video I disagree with and that's good but in my future I'm thinking that one wrong move could end my life that's all it takes

  24. Get a kick back 1500cc bagger with a sissy bar…
    Plenty of power…
    Powering while your in a turn is eventually whatgets you😩

  25. As a new CBR600RR owner this is very true. These bikes beg to go fast its what they are made for. They absolutely suck around town as the bike just wants to go go go all the time. Still absolutely love it though!

  26. SportTouring with emphasis on sport is were to go! A Kawasaki Z1000CX for example. Good riding position, place for two people and luggage, looks great and has 140hp which should be more then enough for anyone on the street. 🙂

  27. Be smart,like me. I upgraded from a 2007 CBR1000 RR to a 2015 BMW S1000R. Yes a ONE R. (I`m abit surprised at how so many know the RR and so few know the R) The "streetfighter RR" only a slight detune with more emphasis on torque than BHP. And me beeing on the wrong side of 40 i actually enjoy riding now as my shoulders are no longer on fire after 15 minutes,90% of the fun is had at 65-96 mph. Not at 140+

  28. Impractical you cant do much groceries you cant go that far without your butcheeks bleeding and your neck falling off those are my main problems

  29. Motorcycle Insurance is not that expensive lol endless you have some sort of full coverage witch is pretty dumb to have on a motorcycle when you can go buy a new bike every 3 years for what you would be paying for full coverage

  30. That’s why I’m looking for an older used sport bike like a Honda cbr600 4fi!! Sporty but not crazy sporty n more comfy too

  31. I’m super new to bikes. I thought that the highest end super bikes can beat ALL production cars easily. Was pleasantly surprised that my car has a quicker 0-60 time and a higher top speed. (Guess the car :p)

  32. Finally an honest video about sport bikes, I’ve owned 2 R6’s and never had an accident , I’m lucky and glad I sold them , I’ll never ride again tho

  33. Ok you can die walking to work, all it depends on is how you choose to live your life. I've nearly died twice riding but it will never stop me doing what I love doing. You can't live in fear or your not living.

  34. Stopped the video as soon as you said "it's really not about skill…". It's all skill. Riding isn't for the faint of heart, stupid, or guys just trying to get girls. It's for riders that love to ride, PERIOD.

  35. What you said about corners is horseshit. They're plenty of places you can get your kneww down (naturally without sticking it out like a tool) and be still be safe. Problem is those roads are few and far between. You just need to know how good you actually are and never ride outside your limit. Sorry but I dont see the issue with me leaning my bone over a bit while maintaining my lane on a road that cars barely use

  36. whats with you and saying "uncomfortable "ten times in the video.. I can ride my r6 for 5 hours straight and im fine. relax maybe youre just old . get a harley

  37. If you have a bike that ain't no fun unless you're doing 201, it ain't for me. I'll just cruse on down the road on my Harley.

  38. It might be a addiction? Nothing is like it, the feeling is unreal I would assume. A few tweaks and there are a lot of kids that are suckers. So I get it for those that like to rip. I ride bmx DJ, 250cr, sled but once I got on that street bike, "ok worst idea I ever made." Honestly I promised my self never to get one now I blew up 3 engines on twerked out 600s and the new promise was I won't go 1000 so…… Yeah

  39. This video actually sold me more, I suppose I kinda just want a super bike for mountain roads and honestly if I die, I die

  40. Seriously, The best Biker guy (Knows anything about bikes,traffic, engine, science side of it too) I have ever known is dead. Killed on a ducati panigale 1299 s. He was even under 120-140 Kph (Usually riding 150 to 300 Kph Average,), riding at 3 line (Highway standards) road on the Bosphorus Bridge. A guy stopped his car in the opposite (divided incoming/other 3 lines) of the bridge, because he was fighting with his girl friend, left his car in the middle oıf the bridge, crossed to the otherside (Where the biker was coming) jump over the safety fence/barrier and that is it. The best biker I have ever known hit the guy that was totally unexpected (You cannot even walk on the bridge or stop a car, anti-terror cops immediately responds, you go to jail or get shot). I was thinking about this biker guy as someone would never have accident, because he have had any kind of ability and knowledge that a biker can ever have.

    I am a guy that loves speeding. Now like anybody loves. It is like a heavy drug/cocaine for me. Exactly same effects. Any kind of car, bike, boaty, jetski etc.that I am riding and if I know that machine is specifically designed for (Real racing speeds and driving in racing and real life conditions) high speed and fast deriving/riding, I will push it to the end of its limits!!! If bike tops at 300 and I would do 300, If it does 400 that I would do 400. If 1000, I would still try it.
    Because I know that that is no satisfying with the speed, more you go, faster it goes but you still try to pass it. The satisfaction you get during during the process of trying to catch is a satisfaction that you would even sacrifice your life for it.

    I was just like that until my late 30's. I did not even bought a electric scooter for myself, while I was able to buy anything from Honda CBR 600 rr to Suzuki GSXR 1000 K8 (Or Hayabusa) and thinking about CBR600rr as first bike!!!

    Long stoıry short; any king of sport or super sport bike those do over 240 Kph speed and archives that speed in a abnormally fast time like 0 to 100 less than 4 seconds etc. are complete suicide machine on the street. They shouıld be riding in racing circuits with full racing protection gear, no traffic etc. Handing out these bikes to any person got a 10-16 hours riding course with a super slow commuter bike and now trying to but a Yamaha R1 is like giving a super sharp Samurai sword to a 6 Years old and tel her/him to cut a garlic with it!!!

  41. 1000's super sport motorcycle? Definitely! We will all die someday. Instead of being bored to death in agony, I prefer to die a few years earlier and have fun on my CBR 1000 RR.

    Here in Germany I can overtake the cops on the highway with 299 kph, quite legally. On the half of the Autobahn sections there is a speed limit. On the other sections of the Autobahn I am allowed to drive as fast as I want… completely legal.

    At no time do I feel more alive than when the Blade's tachometer reads 299 kph.

  42. Yes,these bikes are overkill. I have ridden over 600,000 miles on the street,and own lots of motorcycles,but never one of these. They belong in the hands of a professional on a racetrack.
