The Real Competition for the S1000RR

While I was at Touring Sport in Greenville, SC today, I saw the real competition for the bike. Here it is.

He base model 1198 and RSV4 are both quite a bit more expensive that the S1RR in Oz, the 1198S and RSV4 Factory come with Ohlins and other fancy stuff putting them in another league to the BMW.

You're correct; but, if the S1000RR owner upgrades to the Ohlins suspension, which is often the case, with the add-ons that most are purchasing, you get to the 1198S's cost out the door pretty quick.

I can envision a S1000FR which the "FR" designation equals Full Race.

RSV4 is an awesome machine imo. It is significantly down on bhp to the S1000RR but placed second in the Masterbike test this year proving bhp isn't everything. Problem for me is dealer backup.

San Jose BMW who is also now an Aprilia dealer is having a track day at Infineon (Sears Point) on Thursday and they are taking their S1000RR, their RSV4, and their HP2S racer.

Wish like hell I could fly over for the day, what an oportunity to ride all three back to back.

Dean...
I talked with Willie after their track day...
He said the Aprilia was the most "fun", but the RR was definitely the fastest and most stable of the three. He didn't give me any feedback on the HP...

The familiar performance of the HP2Sport suspension with certainly adequate hp make it a super fun machine. It's no S1000RR; but, then again the S1000RR is no HP2Sport. TWO very different strokes for those of demanding taste.

Bubba, don't forget that the San Jose HP2S runs 145 RWHP, that does make for a fun ride.......
