Bikes are at an aerodynamic disadvantage at high speeds. If they started from a stop, it would take the M6 a long time to catch up to a liter bike.

Aside from that, did anyone notice the "7" on the dash? That's a 7 speed sequential gearbox on the M5/M6.

The BMW M6 is the new standard-bearer for BMW’s M car range, as well as the return of a much loved and highly regarded BMW badge. The latest M car features:

• 5.0-litre V10 engine producing 507bhp
• Seven-speed SMG (personally programmable)
• Lightweight body panels including carbon fibre roof
• 0 – 62mph in 4.6 seconds / 62 – 0 in 36 metres
• 155mph limited top speed
• MDrive Manager control settings

Like the M5, the new M6 also uses BMW’s new third-generation seven speed Sequential Manual Gearbox (SMG) with Drivelogic. Drivelogic offers the choice of 11 different change patterns, depending on the speed of change required. Six change patterns are available in the manual mode and five in the ‘automatic’ mode, in which the gearbox will automatically select the most appropriate gear depending on driving conditions.

That seems true for these cars in stock form, but the Busa posse was running sub-9 second Supras, and the opposite was true. From a dig, the Supras were nearly impossible to beat in the 1/4 mile with out wheelie bars and a slick on the Busa. From a 60 MPH roll, it was even tough and the modified Supra thrashed a stock Busa with a good rider. However, my 300HP Busa was kill of the hill that day... I have it on video here... ahh, the good ole days.

Yea, I've got that video you were in as well. But, highly modded Busas don't count. Aerodynamics are somewhat better on the Busa (but still not on par with most supercars) and 300HP-plus in a lot different than 150HP. (like the bike in the video)

I beleave most of the videos...but I was reading an article, if I can find the link I will post it, that a bunch of kids in a "Supra" only car club were making bogus videos and passing them around the net. They would have there buddies, (Mostly R1's) go about 130 mph, and then suddonly drop speeds, and of course, the supra would wiz by. The kids claimed to do it just for fun, and were not trying to prove anything. Now yes, the car can outrun the bike, but not at the extremes they were showing. They also did the same thing against vipers, ferraris, and even a lotus. I havent been able to find those videos yet though.
