Depends on the type of race.

If that doesn't correct the problem, probably replace all the fairings

I think a drag race or top speed contest would go to the 14. Add some tight corners and the Bimmer would likely run away, although any long straights could erase a lot of distance advantage in a hurry. Like most short wheelbase literbikes, it would be difficult to utilize all the Bimmer's hp from a dead start without lofting the front wheel or flipping it completely. All this hypothetical bench racing is assuming equal rider skills on both bikes, which is rarely the case.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!

I don't get it.
What would it prove, if one beat the other?
They're completely different bikes, from comepletely different classes, designed for completely different types of racing.
You would only really know which bike is truly "better/faster", if they were raced by equally skilled pros.
BUTT, pros don't race eachother on completely different class bikes.
Kinda defeats the point of finding out who's the best rider.

Most chowderheads don't think beyond HP and displacement numbers.

S1000rr is superior than zx14

Very similar 0-60
Both 1/4 mile at 9.1-9.5

Zx14 is electronically limited to 186
S1000rr is 197

S1000rr can out turn a zx14

Electonics..bimmers got it
taction control and wheelie control!


But, in touring zx14 wins

I could have sworn all bikes are limited to 186 since 2001 from the "gentleman's agreement" ? Am I wrong?

I'm sure the BMW is "superior" to a dirtbike too.


unless you're riding it in dirt.

Still not sure why we're comparing the two.
Compare the BMW to other liter bikes.

Haven't heard of anything that went faster in stock trim than the original Hayabusa that did 194. Where'd you see that? This is from the Bimmers dedicated website according to MCN:
http://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/s1...zr-v-rsvr.html
I doubt if the new 14R was included.

That was between the Japanese manufacturers if I'm not mistaken and that was a very long time ago. Also it was only an agreement not an importation rule or law.

Actually this is more accurate:
In 2000, fears of a European regulatory backlash or import ban led to an informal agreement between the Japanese and European manufacturers to govern the top speed of their motorcycles at an arbitrary limit.

If they didn't do this the ZX12 would have beaten the busa. The agreement came along when it was let out that Kawi was making the 12 and that it was capable of breaking the 200mph barrier. Of course when it was released we got the de-tuned version then 2001 it had the limiter. Damn greenies.

Where in Pennsylvania is there room to do 200 mph on a public road? I have only seen a couple of places where I would ever consider doing such a deed and they were out west in the middle of the desert-no side roads, no traffic, NO RADAR COPS and unlimited line-of-sight.

There isn't, not to my knowledge anyway.
