Fast Bikes - - CORE TEST -

The S1000R was the big­gest sur­prise here – I re­ally thought it would be the eas­i­est of the lot, but it wasn’t the eas­i­est to launch in the slight­est. Firstly, the clutch lever isn’t ad­justable so I strug­gled to get the right feel­ing, and be­cause all the power is in the top of the rev range I re­ally had to send it hard from the get go, which meant the front just wanted to hit the sky. It was still in­cred­i­bly smooth though and very pre­dictable con­sid­er­ing, and it was in­cred­i­bly stable on the high speed runs.

0-60MPH: 2.80 sec­onds TOP SPEED: 157mph
