Superbike takes on supercar in airfield drag race
Full UK test and review of the BMW S1000RR
CHECK THIS video of BMW's 190bhp S1000RR superbike taking on a 700bhp Corvette supercar.
Filmed in Germany at a desolated airfield, the movie shows just how fast a modern superbike can accelerate compared to a seriously quick supercar.
Watch them go!
Read owner reviews of BMW S1000RR.
I read the title, laughed and thought, what a waste of time :P
Still fun to watch and try decode Le German..
This whole vid was worth it just for one of the related links on youtube

God, this is such a lame story that's been done to death over the past heaven knows how long.
Almost as boring as reading race track based bike reviews by professional racers.
Relevant to road riders or even fast group track dayers?

no great surprise that something with the power to weight ratio of a superbike can beat a car on a straight. As far as I know the only thing that can beat a race bike in a straight line is an F1 car, and that's because of all the downforce an F1 car creates
@Omni that was great but this is even better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcFy-vDXNiI&feature=related

hi The colonel
while I agree that a F1 card can beat a bike in straight line it has nothing to do with down force as all down force does is force the car in to the road and slow it down which helps in the corners but in a straight line actually slows it down. It is the mechanical grip and sheer power you get from and F1 car that makes it so fast. Still impresive that BMW come to the sports bike world with a seriously capable bike first time well done.

"if there were corners involved it may have been interesting"
Ye, you'd have seen the get even more thrashed.
