Music to my ears
A year after entering the hotly contested literbike market, BMW’s S1000RR continues to impress us. During the racetrack-only portion of our 2011 Literbike Shootout the BMW über sportbike retained its favorite son status – earned in its debut in the 2010 literbike shootout – when pitted against Kawasaki’s all-new for 2011 ZX-10R.
However, it was only after laborious debates and much hair pulling that we gave the S1000RR a narrow victory, its 20-plus horsepower advantage heavily influencing our decision of which bike is the better track-biased weapon.
Recently, we moved this duel to the street – an environment we often hear speculated as the place most purchased sportbikes spend their days. And it’s in a street setting the 10R has proved itself a desirable machine despite finishing a close second to the Beemer at the track.
