2014 v 2015 BMW S1000RR

Published: 07 January 2015

BMW claims their new, third-generation S1000RR is lighter and more powerful than ever. We’re putting that to the test by pitching the new machine against the out-going model.

We’ll speed test both Beemers and strap them to our dyno to see if the new bike really does makemore power at the back wheel and if it can get close to the German firm’s claimed 199bhp power figure.

We’ve already ridden the 2015 S1000RR on-track at its launch in November and we were amazed by its easy speed, but to find out if it behaves itself just as well in the real world, we’ll also be riding it on the road… so it’s a good job it has heated grips!

Read the full road test in MCN next Wednesday.
