The 1000 cc models belong to the category in pursuit of the ultimate “running, turning and braking” in sprint races.

The SS, large-size super sport type is filled with the latest mechanical functions presented proudly by each manufacturer. The advanced electric control technology with the IMU (Inertial measurement unit) has become the trend  in the 2010s, which becomes widespread now, and new trends with extra power competitions and with wings have appeared in 2019 .

It had seemed to be no longer the limit, but there has appeared some machines one after another, which have marked over 200 ps easily by refining their functions such as a finger-follower corresponding to a high rotation and the desmodromic valve mechanism, which is also one of the specialties of DUCATI. It is also needless to say that they have already cleared strict exhaust gas regulations.

Following the GSX-R1000 with a variable valve timing, the S1000RR with a shift cam also attracts notice, which draws much attention by establishing both its torque at a low/middle range and its power at a high rotation.

The wing is a kind of straightening plate to gain a downforce, which has an origin from MotoGP, just equipped to the public road model PANIGALE V4R and RSV4 1100, which would seem to become more popular in the future.

In addition, it is also the recent trend to release superior models in anticipation of racing. Even a complete model of  such as the R1 with racing kit parts has been released.
