Faster than my ZX14

After having the 9000 RPM redline removed, this bike is brutal. I love it. Live in Tampa, Florida so we ride year round here. I'm gonna love my new S1K

still not sure

Yeah, I have both the zx14 and the new s1000rr.

One for trips, one for zipping around.

I'm not sure what's faster hey, I tried timing myself and they came out the same on average.

The BMW's obviously quicker off the mark. Kawasaki hauls ass in mid range on the free-way. Kind of overall similar !!

I'm happy.

my room mate has the new 14r and it cant touch my s1k in any way. its faster and better, performance wise, across the board. im so glad i got a bmw instead of the 14r. im super happy with mine!

If you follow my tail light, you will eventually get to the finish line!

Maybe you know how to launch better?
Maybe he is heavier?
I mean, I'm 108kg on my s1000rr and my brother on his old cbr600f beats me off the mark almost every time, he weighs only about 65kg

That's some of it. But the bike itself isn't as fast. Doesn't trap the same speeds. Doesn't have the 330' of 1/8th mile times. No top end what so ever. It's just a sub standard bike. They are both stock from the factory besides the extended arms.

And this is just my experience. With just one BMW and one zx14r. I'm sure there are others that say different. But me personally, I think the only thing that bike has over mine is comfort

Try going at it again without the quickshifter?
Unless the bloke on the zx14 has an aftermarket one

Yeah, I dont have one of those. Or abs, or trac control, or anti wheelie. Nothing. Now the 14r on the other hand is fully loaded with all the electronic goodies... Any thing else you can come up with? Lol

Like I said. This is just this one instance. Not very pair will be like my experiences. I guess I'm just not trying to get in an argument. This is just the facts that I know.

Yeah, it sucks when you have to argue something you just wanted to share. People like to prove others wrong, or think they know better than someone else. Some join forums for just those things. I appreciate you sharing. I dig 1KRR stories.

zx14 is quicker on long runs and s1000rr is short
