Unfair comparison? Unorthodox? Fair race? BMW engages Rico and Nico, two friends, that were having the ultimate debate: BMW M3, the superstart from M lineup, versus BMW S 1000 RR, the “M bike”.

BMW gave them the chance for a little extra tuning, put them on a racetrack and filmed the race. Well, we clearly know who wins and doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out, but it’s still fun to see the video of two phenomenal engineering masterpieces racing against each other around the track.

In 2010, BMWBLOG and our Shawn Molnar, spent some time with the BMW S 1000 RR and our impressions can be found here.

    this was a race to see how much will the car loose… it did not loose big time, so its good, pretty good !
    a m/c cornering speed is lot higher then the car, acceleration from 30-90 is much better.
    Lot of people think that just because the 0-30 times are not great on most m/c they will not be much faster then a car. The lack of traction blocks the bikes at the 0-30 times after that they are the king.

      0-30?? That bike needs under lees than 6 sec. to 62.. not to mention any further.

      • Mr. Guest

        *2.8 sec to 62 (typo)
