Look at this video..
The story says that a speed freak from norway did 303 kmh. If you look the speedo tells 303, but it´s not looking right how the numbers suddently nearly jumps from 290something to 303 just before a curve...:no
Is it fake?
After the curve he pushes it hard, but aint near 300 again..

When you increase lean angle, the tires diameter shrinks, so you effectively shorten the gearing. So at the same speed and rpm the bike will indicate more speed. :fact
Could be the reason..
The top speed is reached when he leans the bike into the curve.. But then again the article was about him doing 303 km/h on a local street, and that he did not..

What bike is it?

No the bike is definately a Honda CBR 959. If you look at the ignition barrel it has "HISS" on it which is the Honda security system.
Seems very fast for this bike, its either got some serious mods or it's been geared down and hasn't got a speed healer.
