And if you watch the video, they ran the Atom against a CBR 600 What is up with that? Why not prove a point and run it agains a 999R that is priced about the same as the Supercharged atom. Actually i think the 999R is cheaper.logo29a said:They should have put it up against a top-end Atom. The Atom is known for eating just about any bike out there alive. It's only a little more than a 999r.

I don't quite agree. The Atom is every bit as practical as any streetbike out there.amullo said:I love that thinking..
"Hey! Lets put a bike that is made in hundreds of thosands of units (I4 600cc) against a VERY rare and handbuilt car that is only close to streetlegal and actaully not usable outside a racetrack!"
Why not take the atom against a tuned GSX-R1000 that has all the right stuff on it like tires, magwheels, suspension, exhaust, CF panels and so on.
Then they are comparable.. A slight deviation from trackready.
But a Stock 999 BiP against a legalized racecar? Give me a break.
