Comparison test: Superbikes – overall standings

The final evaluation of all three disciplines

The assembled superbike elite was chased away by three disciplines. With a clear result.


The end of the superbike trilogy.

The search is over. One of the largest and most complex tests that MOTORRAD has ever carried out is over. It was clear that there would be surprises and disappointments during this test. But not that such a clear winner would be certain in the end.

Comparison test: Superbikes 2010

The final on the racetrack in Spain

Aprilia RSV4 R and BMW S 1000 RR in a class of their own, the bottom line is that the white and blue sports cannon clearly outdid the competition. And certainly not because of its consistently amazing top performance, but because it simply represents an excellent overall package. It will be interesting to see how the other manufacturers react to this. Another finding of this test: Despite the displacement advantage, the two-cylinder engines seem to be slowly reaching their limits when it comes to combining top performance and everyday quality. But they have still not lost their fascination.
