GSX-R v S1000RR

Macken­zie rates the GSX-R against his ti­tle-win­ning bike

“Power-wise it feels sim­i­lar to my race bike, so for a road bike this thing re­ally shifts. But the big­gest thing I no­ticed com­pared to my BMW is the tank’s a lot slim­mer and it feels a lot eas­ier for me to get tucked in. You’re sat in it a lot more and with the S1000RR you’re sat on top of it and over the front.

“It feels more com­pact and the bars are nar­rower and more like a race bike, com­pared to the BMW’S more comfy stance. I pic­ture it look­ing a lot neater on the track and I can’t wait to see it with race fair­ings.”
