The July 2011 issue of Sport Rider features a literbike comparison test with the current king - the BMW S 1000 RR - being challenged by the two updated models in the class for 2011 - the Ducati 1198 and Kawasaki ZX-10R. As part of the test we ran each bike on our SuperFlow CycleDyn dyno. Check out the horsepower and torque curves here along with images and an onboard from the test; look for the full test in the July 2011 issue, which goes on sale early next month.
Video! Take a lap with Bradley Adam onboard the BMW S 1000 RR at Buttonwillow Raceway, where we conducted the track portion of the test.
