BMW's S1000RR is the German company's first venture into modern superbike territory and what a serious effort it is. Although it shares similar technology to the competition (GSX-R1000, Fireblade, ZX-10R etc) of dohc, 16-valves, stacked gearbox and so on, the engine delivers a mighty class leading claimed 190bhp at the back wheel. Add a good gearbox, impressive fuel injection and electronics, it all adds up to make the BMW shine brightest. As for handling, the S1000R was launched at Portugal's Portimao circuit and couldn't be faulted around one of the most tortuous tracks going. On track the bike turns, stops and gives the rider so much confidence they will push harder and harder and the BMW will take it in its stride.

MCN overall review verdict: You might have to squint to tell the difference between the old and new one (the new tail unit and higher swingarm pivot is the clue), but the 2012 S1000RR is a giant leap forward. The first S1000RR was already leagues ahead of the competition, thanks to its huge power and cutting-edge electronics, but BMW has improved their fire-breathing superbike in every area. Thanks to a host of small, but important mods, it has more grunt, a smoother power delivery, quicker steering, better suspension and more refined electronics. Never has 195bhp been so easy to control.
