Bunch of my coworkers are riding down for the weekend. Looks like they're going to get rained on.

Wish I was going with them.

I hear Honda upped the rev limiter of 93's bike.
The piston speed in feet per min is now closing in on 5600.

if you get the chance, watch QP2 all the way to the very end. Amazing.

Wow- can't be certain w/o knowing the bore/stroke but I believe they would be pushing past 15,000 rpm.

For reference I believe that's about 15% MORE than the totally mental BMW S1000RR engine ever sees.

Remember- each moto gp rider is limited to 5 engines per season, making these numbers that much more incredible.

Moto GP has a max bore. I used an online cyl vol calc to come up with the
numbers. Also used the piston speed calc online.

Yeah, at least - how far did the rider go without the bike?
