S1000RR vs Bugatti vs AtomV8

First the Bugatti Veyron and now the Ariel Atom V8

Already proclaimed the fastest production motorcycle ever the BMW S1000RR places itself amongst the fastest production automobiles ever made.

Just the ability of the bike's ability to keep up with the Atom V8 on the Top Gear Test Track while both piloted by professional rider/driver is astounding.

I am of course in no way biased that the S1KRR is the Ultimate Riding Machine.

I don't know all that much about bikes, but is this BMW liter bike really the fastest?

If it has the same HP/weight ratio as the bike, it should have creamed it after the first corner.

Nothing's going to beat that time around the test track.

lol my friend's father apparently rides the race-spec version of the S1KRR, and he won't let his son--who's a sponsored rider mind you--get even a whiff of the exhaust fumes, because he himself thinks the car is too bloody dangerous

Very impressive indeed, but there is a slightly faster way around that track - and its made in my old town!!



Shame Gandi got in the way of it becoming a permanent fixture on the wall!!

More like a gig from TG...how they used to hate Fifth Gear...then they sacked the old stig....and had to find a Temp-stig (Tiff) to teach the celebrities....well...in this case...drive for Cpt Slow...

Kinda like how the "revealed" that the Stig was Michael Schumacher.

Yes, faster and more powerful than both the busa and the zx-14r, which both have more displacement.

I love my s1k and I can say it is a dream to ride, now if it could only get warmer.

Maybe, maybe not.
However if that was the case, it would be awesome if they renamed him "The Stiff"

I dont think so, the new Stig looks a little too small to be Tiff. I like the Rumor that it could be Sabine Schmitz!

Well they also took an F1 car around there too. I believe the Atom can be streetable (go over a speedbump). Don't they dismiss track car's times on the board?
