BMW S1000RR annihilates competition on track
As you predicted in our online poll, BMW’s stunningly fast S1000RR has defeated all eight of its major rivals on track, comfortably annihilating the competition from both Japan and Europe.
MCN took part in the annual Masterbike test at the new Motorland circuit near Valencia, Spain, where all nine 1000cc inline-fours and 1200 V-twin sportsbikes competed head-to-head.
The manufacturers were allowed to select from a choice of track tyres to suit their machines, and set suspension up to suit track riding. Each bike was subject to an independent dyno test to ensure the bikes weren’t tuned.
