A few numbers from German magazine Motorrad:

German magazine MOTORRAD in their current issue (10/2021) tested the new S 1000 R vs. the previous gen. New gen wins the comparison (723 vs. 706 points) with wins in every single category. Interesting to see the acceleration figures. Here are the numbers incl. the Italians from previous tests, all tested by the same magazine (Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory / Ducati Streetfighter V4S / 2020 S 1000 R / 2021 S 1000 R):

0-100 kph: 3.2 / 3.3 / 3.3 / 3.2 sec.
0-200 kph: 8.1 / 8.0 / 8.3 / 8.0 sec.
power at crank: 176 / 205 / 168 / 171 hp
full wet weight (tank 100%): 216 / 208 / 210 / 200 kg (new S 1000 R incl. pillion kit and M package)
overall test results: 690 / 704 / 723 / 706 points

Those numbers conflict. In the top part it states 2021 723 points, 2020 706. Then at the bottom it's reversed

In the real world youíre not going to be disappointed whatever one of those four bikes you end up with.

Numbers are incorrect at the bottom of the entry but I can't edit it now for some reason?

Poor guy! That's not the weather you want for a brand new bike on brand new tyres! Wishing him some sunny skies and hot tarmac in the future

All these numbers are very interesting if you're a compulsive track day rider, but are us road riders really going to notice the difference?

They're all great bikes and any one of them (or two or more) would be welcome in my garage. Trouble is, there's too much choice but I'm happy with what I have in my stable.

I like that the MOTORRAD tests shows that the new R holds it own vs the "apex predator" of a naked bike i.e. the V4S up to 200kph.  Too many journalists are holding up the V4S without doing their homework enough simply because of the 200+bhp headline. Clearly putting down the extra power is not so straightforward for a naked bike.

Further, the article gives good insights when comparing the old and new R.  Engine wise, performance is almost indistinguishable, albeit the new engine is better, only just.  the big difference is the much better agility, steering sharpness, high speed stability >240kph is down to chassis, geometry and gearing changes, and they guess the carbon wheels.  The old R actually pulls much better between 140-180kph.
