Cycle World 0-180 mph

Interesting test. They took three modern day Sport Bikes and put them up against the McLaren P1.

The interesting part is that they allowed the R1 to run a race ECU, while the BMW had the Akrapovic pipe and 1299 was stock. The strange thing is that the 1299 was FASTEST in the 1/4 mile in e.t and speed, it was also the quickest to 150 mph, but it fell flat after that and was soundly spanked.. I suspect that either the stock mufflers were to blame, or maybe the butterfly valve was not able to stay fully open? Anyone here have any theories as to why it would just die after 150 mph?

"The Ducati, we’re sorry to report, is the only bike in this test that was not as quick to 180 mph as the Kawasaki ZX-10R that won our original “Turn & Burn” test in 2008. What gives? Like the Corvette, the rumbly V-twin Italian was very near its terminal velocity approaching 180, so it took an extraordinary amount of time (and real estate) to reach that speed."

Pretty simple really, it's just not as fast as the others from 150-180. No excuses needed.

We all want our bike to be the "best" at whatever the task at hand is. Simple truth is that is impossible. The new I4's simply are better up top.

I think you may be right.. I just find it weird that the 1299 was SO strong to 150, then so flat up top, but given my experiences with my BMW S1000RR, it could just be that simple: Inline 4's are at their strongest at the top...

Cheers.

Those inlines are monsters. Good thing my home track's front straight is only about 155 mph!

remember that the 1299 is stock 41t rear vs 39t on the 1199. a little quicker on the low end, but lost top end speed.

Pretty sure the 1299 has a 39t sprocket.

1299 has a 39T rear. it's a bike that's geared pretty high.

The bikes with modifications would have really only shown their added horsepower where it's really needed - over 150mph-ish.

Plus, rider skill factors in, among other things. The previous generation S1000RR had run the quarter mile in the high 9s bone stock, with the right rider and conditions.
