Speed test: S1000RR v RSV4 v Hayabusa v ZZ-R1400
20 years after the launch of the original hyperbike, Kawasaki's ZZ-R1100,
superbikes like BMW's S1000RR are now so fast they're rendering the
Hayabusa and co. irrelevant... Or are they? Read the full test in this
week's MCN, on sale Wednesday 19 May 2010.

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...

CBR 600 F4 crash at Laguna Seca track day
Skip to 2:50 for actual track riding, crash at 11:00
I moved from B- to B+ group after getting a good feel for my lines with
upgraded suspension, and was doing OK until I had a little trouble with the
red CBR1000RR. His corner speed was low, but he had so much power in the
straights he'd rocket off and upset every corner I was trying to get
through. I finally got around him and was trying to roll on early exiting
turn 2 to keep him behind me but it was too much too soon. You can hear the
engine spinning up as the rear wheel let go and the bike fell.
I wasn't hurt, but the bike landed upside down and that smashed up a lot of
stuff. It was leaking brake fluid and coolant but the alignment was fine
and I fixed everything.
