You can ALMOST get to 60 in second but indicated speed so to hit 60 actual you definitely need to grab 3rd gear.Not bad at all. The very fastest 0-60 bikes never have to shift out of 1st which is a huge advantage. I think he was in 3rd gear at 60. As I recall, the 650r is right at 4 seconds all in 1st. My Street Triple r is right at 3 seconds provided you can keep the front wheel down. I think 300 riders will still have to watch those Tundra Truck drivers off the line. They always seem to want to race me for some reason, so I like to punch it and watch as they recede in my rearview mirror.
