Considering pump gasoline is only ever going to produce a max of 85 ft/lbs per liter, that would be amazing. lol

LOL you're right. My mistake. 113 NM @ peak power, which is about 84 lb-ft. 100 NM around 5000 RPM, can't wait to see the thing on the roller.:rockon Only bike I am excited about. Like the new V4 from Ducati but afraid of maintenance and resale value. (Toy bike)

Dude, BMW promises 100 pound-feet torque starting @ 5000RPM lol. Amazing!
i've got 130 ft.lbs out of my Raider V-twin :coffee

1854cc :flashy

I'm guessing this will be the same - NOWHERE close to 100ft lbs - ANYWHERE on the S1000RR.
THIS :laughing

dont be absurd Badexample :flip


see above, my butt dyno could disprove said theory just by cracking on the throttle once :D

Take a ZX14R for a spin if you want to experience insane midrange torque. I dare you to go WOT in 2nd gear
I recall mine, it ended up in the hands of a member here. Mind blowing ..... that’s what that bike was. Smoothness, never ending torque. It reminded me of the 600HP electric motors we had in the pulp mill. * *

Insured my G1K today and took a ride out to Jordan River - casual 150km round trip to shake off the cobwebs and see how the roads look.

I can't speak for the new S1000RR of course but here's what I can say about the lowly 83ft lbs and 184hp Jizza:

-It's the first bike I've ever TRIED to thrash a little and was told "Um, NO!"

Honestly it's 3 bikes in 1:

4000-7000rpm - no drama just twist and go, very docile and easy to ride. Peppy but not overkill.
7000-9000rpm - you reeeeally better have your game face on and be paying attention cause shit happens quick, especially from 7500rpm upwards!
9000-14000rpm - basically unrideable on the street. Totally out of the realm of my capabilities to ride it at that power output.

There's always one jackass that tries to argue against it, provides one example (usually a bike larger than 1 liter), and running on VP113.
:laughing

.
i'm having a hard time picturing how this is possible.. careful with that dismount while jumpin' over to the other two 'bikes'.. :flip

That's saying a lot coming from a very experienced track rider.
It's just my thoughts of course - Your results may vary. :) Also you've always been a large displacement guy, I've always been a mid-low CC rider so my adjustment phase will be much more noticeable than yours would be I bet.

Clearly I can drone down the highway at 13,000rpm without drama, just a LOT of noise, but when trying to make time it's actually a detriment for me to have that much thrust on tap - you can't steer as the front wheel is off the ground everywhere and every little input is magnified so safety margins are tiny.

To make use of it you'd have to be at a track like The Ridge or Pacific - even better Portland but as it is this bike still has noticeably more power than my SS built '05 G1K race bike from a few years ago (81ft lbs and 170hp on Avgas).

Once temp's warm up, I get a little more confidence, and the bike is familiar to me I'm sure I'll get more comfortable with it but for now 4000-8000rpm is the sweet spot.

this i can see.. at some point it comes down to what you're used to of course.

but yeah, front wheel off the ground.. i bet counter-steering doesnt do shit at that point :laughing
