7.4@193 zx12r 1/4 mile drags

https://youtu.be/8_Wk0cqgiXY

Graham Balchin on the 12r vs Steve Venables on his DME busa.
Check the times at the end.
Grahams bike has ran over 200 mph in the quarter.
This is the super street final at my local drag strip.
Enjoy.

I really wanted the 12r to win.
Steve is a great rider, he built the 12 with Graham It was his bike in 2005 and he sold it to Graham.
Graham had a bad start slipping, Steve hooked up. Ive seen his busa run 6.9 205. Awesome.
Grahams bike is a 12 to admire and proof that zx12s are not slow for drag racing.

Every Kawi guy loves to hate on the busas. I've riden a few, they are fast machines can't argue that an they make good drag bikes. I need to get more into drag racing I'm more a back mountain road rider but maybe moving to the Midwest where it's all straight an flat, sounds like riding hell to me but would be great for drag racing.

Busa's have loads more aftermarket support, so in theory are easier and cheaper to make faster. Always give props to guys who stick with the 12R and make it fast!

I believe Graham has gone 7.0 flat at over 200 and, Steve 6.90 210
These guys are the fastest in UK superstreet.
Steve ( Ven racing) is sponsored by DME and Graham has his own datalogging system used by many of the top fuel guys including ,I believe, Ian King. So these are at a truly dedicated professional level.
Great to see.

Is this the fastest super street ZX12R in the world?
