Video: BMW S1000RR onboard at Bruntingthorpe

Following MCN's test of Kawasaki's 2011 ZX-10R against its superbike rivals on road and track last week, which placed the ZX-10R third, this week we have taken them all to MCN's performance test track and dyno facility. The video below gives you a taste of the speed testing at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground. To find out the results, pick up a copy of...

That's nothing!

I've had more than that out of my GSXR 1000K8......and it was about £5K cheaper!

Good power wheelies though!

Hey Goodygixer

I hate to mention this but...... Your Speedo is Slightly out mate,  Just like my Tuned 2010 Busa.which is obviously alot slower than both!  Would make an interesting race though specially now the T.R.E. is fitted.

Your busa sounds pretty mental, my mates got a supercharged one pushing out 450bhp he reckons, it's an awesome looking thing as well, it's been sprayed to look like a jet fighter!

Getting back to the Beemer though.........I bet there are speedo inaccuracies on that as well as there are on all bikes.......so if thats reading 186mph it's probably doing a genuine 175mph or so!

my Ford Boring

Was doing An indicated 86 When I spotted an  undercover asshole hiding in a van with no stripes (and no friends) on a quiet duel cabbage way on a sunday (double tax payers pay) with only myself and the person in front who pulled in pretty sharpish, leaving me in the sights of the aforementioned sad twat ex clamper with  a uniform fetish and I did actually get a ticket for 86 in a 70 thank fcuk i wasn't on my Busa , but then I only have a twat plate on the rear. so how accurate are Speedo's ???? First time in 32 years i get points. what a dangerous person I was.

cock bike wins again

cock bike owner owners please remember their is more to road riding than 200bhp

the most over hyped bike for years

whilst you are down the pub telling you mates about you 200bhp, and ignoring  lack low and midrange

back in the real world of riding, the latest R1 is a better road bike because everytime you open the throttle you have its sweet smooth punch, putting a big smile on the face of their owners good enough to who know how  to use the new bike

then theres the fireblade probarly the best road bike ever produced, (not the most exciting), thats the R1 but with the blade you get the most agile, best mid range and most refined bike i have ever ridden

still back in cock land as will be well dreaming of that 200bhp you will never use on the road

dream on cocks !!!!  lol

JEEEEEEZZZZ , thats a bit brash,

So the assumption is.... if you own a BMWS1000RR then you cant ride, so tell me how did you arrive to that point, 

I know for a fact my RR kicks the crap out of the 2010 R-1 ,,, I know this coz I did it!  

so when your TRYING  to suck your own cock whilst flicking through last months gimps and bitches mag issue 12,,,,just remember we know where you ride!!!!!!!,

So wake up smell the coffee and stop talking gob shiteee,
