Yamaha R1 vs BMW S1000RR vs Nissan GTR

We must admit we'd really like to see such a display of brutal horsepower in more decent and race-oriented conditions, but until we can convince these guys to race in a safer environment, this will have to do.
The recipe for an awesome piece of street racing is simple:"get two nice sport bikes and pit them against each other, then tape everything from another beast, namely, the Nissan GTR. That is, to make sure you can still record the race when things get very serious. And with the GTR doing 300 km/h (186 mph), you're sure the riders can't escape.

Now, the title of this video is completely unfair, as there's no owning to be seen anywhere: it's just some guys riding at high speed, without even putting up too much of a battle. To be honest, we guess the S1000RR is a bit faster and meaner than the R1, but we're not passing judgement this time. And even more, the GTR was also not a part of the battle, though such a race would indeed be awesome.
