As for the S1000 RR HP4, this bike might be preparing for a new generation, but it remains an extremely fierce two-wheeled contraption. And it's enough to think of the monster's 193 hp output to understand why.
Given the breathtaking power-to-weight difference between the two speed tools, a standing start would've given the car at least a few chances of impressing the audience.
However, the drag battle we're talking about saw the two going for a rolling take-off, with the start of the race taking place at 50 km/h (make that 31 mph). Thankfully, the motorcycle found all the neccesary grip, as indicate by its furious sprinting.
The McLaren was used as the camera vehicle and while its soundtrack is the least exciting on the supercar market, the aural part of the video still delivers a few kicks. And that's because you'll get to notice the uber-quick upshifts delivered by the seven-speed transmission of the Brit.
When it comes to the rider of the S1000 RR HP4, the only question the man had to answer was how early he could fully abuse the throttle. Don't worry, though, the piece of footage below will allow you to easily notice the moment when this takes place.
