How fast does it go? HP4 v Hayabusa v ZZR1400 | Special | Motorcyclenews.com
Here's one group test that BMW's S1000RR might not win. BMW's ultimate
version of the S1000RR; their super-advanced HP4, is current champion in
its class, and won our MCN superbike shootout hands down.
This week it takes on the challenge of top speed against the big-power
hyperbikes, Kawasaki's ZZr1400 and Suzuki's Hayabusa.
Get the best of biking EVERY day...

McDonald's Drive Through On a BMW S1000RR In Slick Mode
I have never put my S1K in slick mode, nor have I
ever gone through the drive through on bike, let's do
Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8
track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in
a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders?
There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the
most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne
power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with
748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but
all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?

Can a supercar beat a superbike? Can a Audi A1 outrun a Nissan GT-R on a
wet circuit? Can a Porsche 911 slay a Corvette on the drag strip? Autocar
pitches the giants of the performance car world against each other to
deliver the all-important verdict.

BMW S1000R: Road Test Review
Full review/photos: http://www.gizmag.com/bmw-s1000r-review/33429/
The S1000R is a road-focused weapon of a sportsbike that goes even harder
than its S1000RR superbike cousin. It also packs pretty much every piece of
rider assist and safety technology that BMW makes - plus one magical, tiny
switch that we hope we see a LOT more of!

Dragshock™ / Dragshock EZ™ Suspension Demonstration
Brock's Performance president, Brock Davidson, an avid performance
enthusiast and past national championship winning rider as well as tuner,
explains how to adjust the rear suspension on his BMW S1000RR 'Christine'
for drag race use. Follow along as he explains how the rebound dampening
functions as it relates to the launch and down track acceleration between
himself and his lighter 'jockeys'.
Note: At 9/16th sag using a 95 Newton (542 lb.) spring with a 150 lb.
rider in the saddle, a rear tire pressure of 12 psi is used. Brock's weight
of around 210 lbs. suited brings the sag to 1" and a tire pressure of 18
psi is used. The bike squats a bit more than optimum, which means the
spring preload should be increased a bit, or the spring rate might need to
be increased -- BUT, the object is for this bike to be as fast as possible
with the smaller riders--not tuned for him--so only tire pressure
adjustments are made.
Slick track = more rebound dampening added, more squat for more traction.
Less tire pressure, if possible.
Sticky Track = more spring preload, less squat, more tire pressure...
although light riders tend to spin, so lower pressure is generally used.
(see Jeremy's run at beginning of video, it is very close to perfect.)
Bumpy Track = If the racing surface is exceptionally bumpy, the rebound
dampening must be reduced (example adjust from -15 clicks to -20 clicks) to
prevent high speed 'oscillation'.
Stock or Short Wheelbase Applications = Stock/Short wheelbase bikes do not
require as much 'squat', because they are not as prone to spinning.
Since more squat leads to additional traction, this can also cause stock
wheelbase bikes to wheelie. As a result, we would have a bit more static
spring pressure dialed in, with more compression dampening and less rebound
dampening (to force the front end back down as the rear rises).
Special thanks to www.dragbikelive.com for the video coverage.
Also note: This advice applies to all makes and models. The BMW S1000RR
shown was simply used as a handy example for this particular video. Spring
rates will differ between makes/models.
