Testing speeds between YZF-R1M, 1299 Panigale S, Ninja H2 and S1000RR With Supercar

Who does not know the Yamaha YZF-R1 and R1M superbike? We must also know all the advanced features can not be rivaled superbike class that has been born first. However, what if the Yamaha superbike is pitted with superbike from other manufacturers such as Ducati, Kawasaki, and BMW?

Or what if the four different superbike manufacturers are competing with theĀ  Chervrolet’s and McLaren’s supercar?

The Superbike is Kawasaki Ninja H2, Yamaha YZF-R1M, Ducati 1299 Panigale S and BMW S1000RR, which is believed to be the flagship superbike of each manufacturer for this test. Why Kawasaki H2 and not H2R? It turned out that Kawasaki USA still restrict the permit unit for testing speed / performance test by the media up to the official results of the top speed test from Kawasaki USA out. Therefore H2 represents here.

Specifically, they are monsters. Ducati 1299 Panigale S which has power 177 hp @ 10,700 rpm, pitted with Yamaha YZF-R1M 173.3 hp @ 13,610 rpm, Kawasaki H2 189.8 hp @ 11,090 rpm and BMW S1000RR 181.7 hp @ 13,600 rpm.

When viewed from the looks, plus see the supercharged supersport 4-cylinder specifications that seeded, we will rely on Kawasaki Ninja H2 and this test.

Yamaha YZF-R1M can be a hope because the last born with features and design that can not be underestimated. We know also, in the hands of Bradley Smith, Pol Espargaro and Kayutsuki Nakasuga Superbike is able to conquer the event Suzuka 8 Hours, stop the barrage of Honda’s victory with its CBR 1000RR.
Yamaha YZF-R1M has its own tricks to achieve maximum performance, as explained by Canet jockey for this test, which keeps the rpm in the range of 9000 rpm.

Compete speed between superbike course is very thrilling, what if Superbike pitted with supercar.
Consider the results in the image below, this performance test is done by limiting the speed of 0-180 mph at Naval Air Station Lemoore.

BMW can be proud of the S1000RR despite its unseen achievements in the MotoGP CRT Class event but scored a hat trick in the Isle of Man TT 2014 in the hands of Michael Dunlop jockey, and also P1 and P2 in the Superbike World Championship 2012 series England at the Donington Park circuit by Marco Melandri and Leon Haslam.
BMW’s flagship superbike in this test won a slim reach 180 mph in 16 seconds above the Ninja H2 with a difference of 0.4 seconds.

This result is indeed limited to 180 mph. And based on the determination, BMW S1000RR only smoked by McLaren P1 recorded only need 15.74 seconds to reach 180 mph. Surely everything is also affected by the weight of a varied vehicle. On the other hand, the Chevrolet Corvette is quite troubled by its own shifting system, which must reach gear 6 to reach 180, while jockey Derek Hill (son of 1961 F1 world champion Phil Hill) initially tried to reach that distance in gear 5 which was affected by a limiter effect capable only Devour 179.4. When extended, it could be the other shows its ability is better than this 180 mph result.
