It’s both a tire-torching track bike that will help you set the lap time of your life and one of the most street-useful racetrack refugees ever offered to us mortals. Dynamic Damping Control tunes itself to suit your riding mood, changing from plush to precise in an instant. It’s got a dyno-melting 179 horses at the wheel, yet idles along in top gear with nary a hiccup, plus it’s got the best quick-shifter ever. All for a base MSRP of $20,525. Is there a German version of Godzilla? There is now.
