Breaking from BMW Motorrad tradition, the S 1000 RR has always used an inline-four engine rather than a horizontally-opposed boxer twin. With the four-cylinder configuration, the S 1000 RR is able to produce a hearty 205 horsepower and 83 lb-ft of torque. The power is delivered using a constant-mesh six-speed, and kept under control with a number of exciting riding aids.
On the other hand, the 2021 Tesla Model S Plaid is an all-electric powerhouse, delivering a remarkable 1,020 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.1 seconds, covers the quarter mile in 9.23 seconds, and boasts a manufacturer-claimed top speed of 322 km/h, establishing itself as one of the fastest production cars in the world.
