Awesome Buell 1125R Rider Smokes R1, GSX-R1000 and ZX-10R

Great highway race between no less than 4 liter-class beasts: a Buell 1125R, Suzuki GSX-R1000, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and a Yamaha YZF-R1.
In the absence of calibrated and certified timekeeping, it's really hard to tell how fast the bikes are going, but one thing is obvious.

The first, and probably the most important is the fact that the Buell rider really knows his way around drag racing. His starts are almost perfect and this give a holeshot advantage over his rivals. With no modern launch control gimmicks, the 1125R rider is only using his guts, throttle and clutch to keep the front down and ride ahead.

Despite the fact that the Japanese bikes have racing-focused in-line 4 engines which are most likely more powerful than the Buell plant, it looks like an 1125R can really put them to shame, when in the hands of a skilled rider. Still wondering how will the new Buell bikes be like...
