72kw Bandit vs 118kw S1000R

Post  Jonnytiv on Wed 07 Jun 2017, 11:00 am

So I road my mates 2016 BMW s1000r the other day and the thing almost felt "sluggish" compared to my 1250. when I saw the power figures of the s1000 I couldn't believe my eyes. How is it that the Bandit with a mere 72kw a: keep up with the bmw and b: feel quicker to ride.   Question

Its all about torque delivery.
I too, a couple or years ago,  rode the S1000RR...it may have 190hp (fly wheel) but it felt like crap, along with all the other 1000 sports bikes I've ridden.  Get to 6500-7000 rpm,and then it's a whole different kettle of fish.  But for pure low down torque, they don't have it. 
"No substitute for cubes"
I'm sure there's lot's that will disagree, i reckon they're useless  for the street....repeat...street.
I'd  go the 1100 tuono .

Bottom end torque is fun if you're just cruising or commuting but mid to top end is "funner" Smile
The S1000R will probably be my next bike.
Look at the number of people who've had Bandits and gone onto other mounts. Very few want to go back.
There's nothing wrong with the B1200/1250 and I mean no disrespect but I must ride exceptional V4's and triples if your experience is true.

I take back what i said about 1000's.....
I've just this second come back from riding an MT10.......
It's the first 1000 to impress me. 
Almost smack from word go, and just gets stronger the higher the revs. Nice chassis and brakes to go with it. 
Fueling felt faultless as well. 
Go ride one mate!!!!!!!

2wheels....i will own a v4, but it will be an 1100 Tuono....awesome bike!!!!

Yes, I've also ridden the MT-10. Couldn't really open her up fully due to it been an accompanied test ride - but it did pull hard from down low. If i had the coin I probably would have bought the thing.

Ive ridden S1000r, MT10, Tuono 1k and Superduke. S1000r was slow out of turns, you would need strong corner speed to keep it on the boil. I would drop the gearing a lot.  MT10 is ok but a bit meh. Tuono 1k is very nice to the point of stunning, I would own one. If it wasnt for all the troubles I hear of owners having with them. And parts are a nightmare. Superduke is really nice but cant touch the Tuono for its handling. 

My 1250 with a tune on is 90ftlb torque. Great around town and in the country. Comfortable power. 

I really wanted a Super naked. Tested them all. Ended up with a CBR1000rr with a bit higher bars on. Much fasterer Twisted Evil

One of my 1200 bandits with some work to it,  not allot by any means, has 89 ft, and 144rwhp, played with suspension, brembo master cylinder. .....blah blah,
but I'm not here to swing my dick, cause i don't care if it had 200hp, at the end of the day, its still a bandit.
 I'd still own the 1100 tuono  not the 1000,
and I'd still own an mt10.
