If you're comparing big CC bikes 250CC and above like the Kawasaki Ninja 250R, it is the same as the car. If you're comparing against kapcai with a normal car, then there is a difference. My mechanic told me last time that those kapcai, including 135LC got "meter ringan", made it to feel as though you're faster on the speedometer but in actual fact you're not going as fast it says it does. That is why people think that the Kawasaki Ninja 250R is slow compared to a normal kapcai because of the rated top speed but on the road or a race, almost any kapcai will lose.
For a superbike vs a car in terms of speed you read on the meter, it is the same except that motorcycle has way faster acceleration but slightly lower top speed.

all motorbikes have meter tolerance of ~5 to ~10% higher tolerance (5 to 10% higher than actual speed) reading.
ALL meters developed to be the same except that (lack of) calibration and tolerance. Otherwise, U WON't NEED A STANDARD METER anymore.
Most SBK have higher top speed than a car, depending of type (chopper, cruiser, supersports, ect)
Just 2 cents from owning a lc135, 250r, zx-10r n dugong.
