All electric S1000R?
« on: December 11, 2019, 11:36:08 PM »
Just finished reading this and thought I'd share here for interest. Article regarding future electric bike projects by BMW. S1000R making a guest appearance. I wonder how much that prototype weighs..

I don't see how the electric can "smoke" the S1000R....  MCN did a review of the '14 S1k and posted a 0-60 of 2.8 seconds and 0-100 at 5.54 seconds! Quarter mile times were 9.97.... and this was for a bike 5 years ago! I say NO WAY.....

From MCn as well..."it has an effective torque of 1106ftlb (yes, really)"   that will be enough to smoke anything off the lights...They dont claim its quicker over the quarter(its restricted anyway)

Have you been for a spin in a Tesla? They dont have shift up to a 120...

Well 2.8 is quicker than 2.9....

Car and Driver recently stated that the theoretical limit of traction for today's best auto tires is 0-60 in 2 sec. Any idea what it is for bike tires?

I personally haven't had the chance to ride in a Tesla, or a Zero for that matter. But I'd be curious to try both just to see how different it is (or isn't).

I did just buy an electric board called a Onewheel for more local trips. But it would take a lot for me to let go of the R..

You can see the S1KR is wheelie limited and not traction limited. The electric bike is carrying its considerable weight very low to the ground....so it will not wheelie until higher rates of acceleration.  Of course it can accelerate harder at low speeds than the SK1R...but if the test was carried thru the quarter mile, as all legit drag races are, i would bet the SK1R would win....but of course the electric was speed limited to avoid that.
