Acceleration ideas anyone?

  1. Got a chance to ride my first CBR250RR today, and after riding a Kawasaki Balius last week, it got me thinking? How quick are these bikes? The Balius apparently has the ZXR250 motor, and like the CBR, revs to 19,000rmp.
    I weigh about 70kgs, so how fast do you reckon these bikes are getting up to say 100kph? I didn't get a stretch of road long enough to test this, nor did I care at the time. But I am curious to see if anyone has done this test on either bike, and if you have an idea of how that time translates to someone of my weight :?: I'm a learner, so they felt like they had a bit of pace for a 250, but ballpark figures would be helpfull. :grin:

    Thanks everyone
