How fast can the S1000RR stop?

Just talking about this on another forum and I said surely the BMW would be THE best bike to stop from 60mph to 0mph. Especially against a car.

does anybody have any proof, a member said a BMW m3 car stops from 60 in 2.4 secs, would the S1k beat it?

Are you talking about stopping distance or time to come to a complete stop?

I would believe a car would be able to come to a complete stop in a shorter distance because of the larger tires. Of course there are exceptions.

Compasion of an Lambo and Ducati

Skip to about 5:00 for a braking comparison.

Heres an old videos of the BMW Williams F1 car vs. BMW M3 braking and distance and time to complete stop comparison. M3 of any generation is no slouch when it came to stopping either.

would't the distance/time argument be the same? ie.the quicker it can stop the shorter the distance?

I'll check the vids.

Surprisingly, the stopping distances for bikes and cars don't vary that much. Fit the same sticky tires on a Chevy Suburban and it will stop in nearly the same distance as a Porsche 911.

Everything else being equal (which is never is), cars generally do a little better because they have more tire contact area and because it is easier, both for a driver and/or ABS system, to get all the wheels close to lockup without skidding. Since virtually all modern brake systems can easily bring all wheels to lockup, it is mostly a matter of the skill of the driver/rider and the interaction of the tires and pavement at a particular time, temp, etc.

The S1000RR has good brakes, but so do lots of bikes, so I wouldn't expect it to perform markedly better (or worse) in stopping distance than other sport bikes. Again, variations in tires completely overwhelm the variations in brakes.
