This fight is theoretically illogical (each of the cars is directed to a different receiver), but car fans will surely be interested to know which machine was able to cross the finish line first.
Although we prefer four wheels to two wheels, the most interesting thing about this collision is the two wheels. We don’t want to disparage both Toyotas, but they are more popular and have already participated in many comparisons and duels organized by Mat Watson on the carwow channel. Will the Dakar motorcycle beat the Japanese racers?
It is difficult to say objectively, considering the technical data (about which a little below). However, the honor is due, because the two-wheeled motorcycle presented is the GasGas RX 450F, which won the Dakar Rally.
Dakar Motorcycle vs. Toyota
So let’s start with him. It has a small single-cylinder engine with a capacity of 450 cubic centimeters, which produces 72 horsepower and 150 Newton meters. So it is difficult to compare its power with cars. The trump card is dead weight. GasGas weighs only 150 kg.

Toyota GR Yaris is not heavy, and still weighs 1290 kg, which is almost nine times more than a Dakar motorcycle. Under its hood we find a three-cylinder, supercharged 1.6-liter engine, which produces 264 horsepower and 360 Newton meters. Power, of course, is sent to both axles through a six-speed manual gearbox.
How does the Toyota Supra fare against this background? It weighs 1,500 kg – ten times that of a motorcycle. However, it has a bigger and more powerful engine. It is a three-liter, supercharged engine that produces 387 horsepower and 500 Newton meters. Unlike the Yaris, its power goes only to the rear axle.
Therefore, it is not easy to indicate a favorite, although definitely bet on the Supra. So it’s worth watching this fight and find out what the order is at the finish line.
