Tom Sykes misses out on a fourth successive World Superbike pole position, but his 339km/h top speed earns him and Kawasaki a place in the record books...

Wow 339.5kmph Amazing feat Sykes/Kawasaki. AFAIK, previous WSBK record was 326.9kmph by Biaggi & Aprilia. so Sykes broke that record by a huge margin. And AFAIK motogo top-speed record is 349.5 by Stoner (or Pedrosa?) and Honda. So even in motogp very few bikes have managed to achieve that speed. Loved that. :-o
