Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Wants to Play, GT-R Says Nah

Here we ago again with some fast-paced highway action that might lead to some police work, fines, arrests, and vehicle impounding. As far as we know, Germany is the only European country that does not impose a speed limit on their highway, even though at times, such limits are enforced because of weather conditions, work in progress, crashes and the like.

We paused the video and saw a sign that read Lisboa, which is the capital city of Portugal, hence our supposition related to fines and all the hassle. Last time we checked, Portugal was even more restrictive than other EU countries, with a speed limit of only 120 km/h (74.6 mph) on the highway, which is indeed, boring.

Doing 300 km/h (186.5 mph) is most likely one of the shortest ways to huge fines, vehicle impounding and possibly jail, so riding in such a manner and posting the video online might not be exactly wise. And that's because we wanted to avoid using "is downright stupid" this time.

The GTR driver was fine with his 200 km/h cruise speed

Now, we're not the self-righteous type of fellows here, simply because we also speed like demented idiots now and then. Still, bragging under such circumstances and offering video proof to those seeking for it are things we refrain from doing.

The Ninja rider was most likely happy to catch up with the GT-R, and the prospect of an ad-hoc race must have looked truly appealing. The GT-R itself was not exactly riding in a relaxed manner, tapping into the 200 km/h (124 mph) zone.

In a way, we are happy that the Nissan driver did not play ball. He or she seemed more considerate and minded the rather busy highway traffic, turning down the invitation.

We don't know what the GT-R was hiding under the hood, but there is a chance that the Nissan was so well-endowed to give the Ninja a run for the money. Obviously, a hard, if not altogether impossible task with such traffic, but you can never know...
