Now my Kinetic honda has a much greater power than my stock Splendor. But the wind force will resist the scooter to win in a drag race between Splendor and Kinetic Honda???
My answer is Splendor
will be Winner, ( I can say not because I had won race on Splendor but I had Bike in past & Kinetic now, but I had easily driven bike >100 kmph, but probably never Kinetic > 80 kmph. I had even race with cars on Splendor, but never with Kinetic)
But that is not because of wind force due to scooter front apron. I think more important factors are
1) Riding posture on Bike, hence better grip on vehicle & hence more confidence to speed
2) Big wheels & hence better confidence in grip & hence speed.
