I hate video tests. Just not into watching over an hour. Can someone give us the cliff notes version of how it ends?

Fast forward it to the last 15 minutes, that usually works.

Pretty dern good video there. Seems they really liked the ducati as well as the beemer, more than the honda sp. I would think some personal preference plays a part here for these moto journo’s. I would still prefer the new sp. :unsure:

CBR rides like a 2 stroke. RSV4 would be track winner with better electronics. Ducati is cool. BMW wins overall.

May be. But it's a helluva damn good two-stroke!!:)
And you street riders couldn't enjoy it any other way (y) if the lower end had the throttle response of the top end you couldn't ride it in any sort o traffic situation.

The more I think about it the more I am looking forward to getting an ST to uncork. I'll give the SP a miss this time round.

There were some rumors saying that the early S1000RR had its roots with Suzuki because of collaboration when BMW entered the super sports market.
How much of that is still around in the current S1000RR ?
The cam-lift seems like a transfer of technology from their cars VANOS.

@artthury there was no collab between BMW and Suzuki. BMW, like most manufacturers bought a GSX-R1000 and put their motor in the chassis as a test mule. Suzuki is known for a good-turning motorcycle hence they were the benchmark. The keen eye will notice Suzuki and BMW are the only 1000cc bikes with a 23.2 degree rake angle. Everyone else is in the 24-25 degree range....

Ah ... good to know. Thanks for the info.

Interesting that even though the 2020 Rake/Trail of
S1000RR = 23.5°/3.7 in
CBR1000RR = 24.0°/4.0 in

their corresponding wheelbases are

S1000RR = 81.6 in 56.7”
CBR1000RR = 57.3 in

Thanks for the correction. CycleWorld.com is messed up. I should have looked at the real source

Yeah, I always go to the manufacturer's site first. Cycle World must have the stretched version :D

Yup, a drag-racing version. D version vs the M version. :ROFLMAO:

Looks like the 2020/2021 Fireblades have put on weight again ...

FWIW manufacturers seem to lie or play games with weights, etc. I actually trust the magazines more than the claims made by the manufacturer.
