The Rimac Nevera, an all-electric hypercar, has been setting records and demonstrating its dominance in various competitions. It has already proven its superiority against high-performance internal combustion supercars. But how does it fare in a drag race against high-speed motorcycles?
In a video by carwow, the Rimac Nevera, with its astounding 1914 horsepower and 1740 lb-ft of torque distributed to all four wheels, goes head-to-head with two incredibly fast motorcycles: a supercharged Suzuki Hayabusa and a MotoGP bike. The objective is to determine the winner in a straight-line race.
Before diving into the video, let’s analyze the numbers. The Rimac Nevera’s power far exceeds that of the motorcycles. However, weight plays a crucial role in these races. The Rimac, with its 120 kWh battery, is a heavyweight, weighing around 2,300kg. Motorcycles, on the other hand, are considerably lighter.
Next to the Rimac is a Suzuki Hayabusa, equipped with a supercharged engine producing 380 horsepower and weighing 257kg. Alongside it is the KTM Red Bull MotoGP bike, ridden by the legendary Dani Pedrosa, a rider with 31 MotoGP victories. This bike features a 1,000cc engine delivering 270hp and weighs just 157kg.
