Ben: motorcycles tend to have alot more power per pound then cars, an exception of this is my cb125, with it's 12hp engine, of course it gets about 65-70mpg, but it's air drag that keeps it's top speed at 55-60mph, to reach that 60mph I have to duck down, and tuck my knees in, but alot of motorcycles have ungodly amounts of power for their size, and engines that rev to 10,000-15,000rpm, and even crotch rockets aren't very aerodynamic.
