Power to weight comparison
I have been curious on a certain matter of comparison between a car and a motorcycle.
if your took a car and a enclosed motorcycle ( for aero and top speed )lets say for hypothetical purposes the car weighed 2000 lbs and had 2000 horsepower, while the bike weighed 500 lbs and had 500 horsepower, which would have the higher top speed.
keep in mind obviously the factors of rolling resistance, and traction aswell.
i would assume that while an enclosed motorcycle would obviously have the lesser of a drag coefficient, the car would have more traction.
who would have the superior speed?
