V4s v rsv 1100 v s1000rr 2019

So as the title says,
What ya all think the results of the next bike tests is going to read ?
We all know the Duc is the supermodel btw.

The Ape looks dated, but is probably going to be a winner. Thatís my guess.

The RSV4 1100 Factory was at the IMS show and it does look dated. The BMW is not supposed to be out until summer or early fall as dealers have 2019 bikes now (same as 2018). Based on previous reviews and those that do them I think it will go to the S1000RR IMHO.

I will add that having owned most except the S1000RR I think the Ducati V4 is tops (sounds biased). The things they will knock (heat, no cruise & cost).

Ducati for some strange reason, never do well in magazin tests, they are usually a bit too extreme and expensive but the V4 may just change that, but I would not bet on it.

Sold my 15 s1000rr to look for a v4s, but after reading so many issues with duc, I will await the 2019 s1000rr.

Bet it beats the ducati. Anyone see the dash on the new s1000rr? not much info on it, but it seems that it will pair to ones phone. Available navigation on the screen, heck yeah. just based on the technology on the beamer, it blows the duc away.

I saw the new BMW at the LA IMS show and it is nice. I am not sure about better tech than the V4. The S1000RR does not have GPS on the dash that I am aware of they have an option that you can add for lap timer. The BMW does feel slimmer on the new bike and it has cruise & heated grips if that's what you like.

Aprilia always seems to do very well in test, so that is my guess..

I Ride: 1199 Panigale
I own and track an RSV4 and can't really say I am that impressed with the latest version of this tried and true superbike. The bike to me still seems heavy for the times, and the visual changes they made (winglets and a different cut in the headlights) aren't inspiring.

I have owned two BWM S1000RR's and I am very excited to ride this latest version.

The V4 is amazing, easy to ride, and it fixed some of the key faults/characteristics I noticed with the Panigale series. Still I would hold out for the BMW I think. A base model V4 is 24K out the door and a base model S1000RR is around 16-17k which leaves plenty of room in the wallet to make that swap for cartridges and a more race oriented shock. Not only that BMW has to do something exceptional to really compete against the VR and bring some competition to Yamaha's R1 who is dominating the track scene for the past three years.
