Bikes and Their Car Equivalents

As I (and probably a lot of us on this forum) often have to describe bikes that may not be well known to many moto-laypersons, I frequently find myself thinking of what kind of car a certain bike is most similar to. For example,

A Ducati 1098R


Might be likened to a Ferrari 458


A KTM 990 Adventure


Could be compared to a Ford Raptor


A Honda CBR600


Is a lot like it's Civic Cousin


Let's see your comparisons. I'm excited to see what everyone thinks.
