Last year, we told you that the BMW S1000RR made 183hp at the rear wheel. This chart, which shows the Japanese competitors’ number on the same dyno, illustrates just how big a performance leap that is. And the torque? The BMW makes 79.6lb/ft while the nearest competitor, the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000, manages 78.8.
Update: More accurate graphic above and the weirdness in the original graphs explained by Kevin Ash in the comments below. Thanks Kevin!
