It's a win-win scenario.
As anyone who has spent time on YouTube can tell you, videos comparing cars and motorcycles just don’t work. It’s pretty ridiculous, actually. There’s just too much difference between the two. The amount of wheels, the weight, the engines, the aerodynamics—it’s all too different! The best thing to do with a video camera, a motorcycle and a car is to just let them have a fun run on the track. That’s exactly what happens in this Michelin video starring a Porsche 918 Spyder and a Yamaha YZF-R1.
The message is that we’re all racers despite the majority of us not owning a 918 or R1. Economic limitations aside, this video is well-shot, especially the slow motion bits. Check it out and then let us know whether or not you feel like buying Michelin tires in the comments section.
