That's not a Bugatti, it's a Suzuki Hayabusa at 258 mph.
The speedo has a peg so it won't go higher. Then again, you could double the gearing to make this vid, or, more likely, green screen the bacground and use a drill motor.
Did anyone else notice the launch wheelie didn't settle til over 100?
This video has been floating around forever....I call bs. That speedo doesn't seem to be calibrated for the gearing.
The speed sensor (tells the bike's computer how fast you're going and hence your speedo) is actually connected to the top or side of the gear box... not the front wheel or the rear. They make a device called a speedo healer (I have one installed on my 1000RR)... It compensates/adjusts your speed if you decide to regear (front or rear sprockets). Although it is designed to correct your speed, you can program that thing to read what ever you want. I could be doing 100mph and I can make it read 50mph or the flip side... make it read 200mph at 100mph. It's a device that attaches to and interupts the speed sensor signal to the computer and hence the speedometer. So you can make these thing read what ever you want...yes I did......fairly sure the speedo is connected to the front wheel (most bikes are)
so why did it continue to climb MPH in a wheelie?
