PostSubject: BMW S 1000 RR   Wed Mar 25, 2009 6:19 pm



Staff and fans of BMW Motorrad were looking forward to March 1st 2009 with great excitement, and I dont think anyone was dissapointed! At the introductory race to the Superbike World Championship in Phillip Island / Australia, two BMW motorcycles will be in the starting line-up for the first time. After recent tests in Portimao and Valencia, riders Troy Corser and Ruben Xaus are optimistic about the future and the mood in the BMW Motorrad Motorsport team is positive. The racing bikes will be fairly close to serial production models, allowing for the greater audience identification characteristic of the sport. Behind the scenes meanwhile, production of the serial machine is getting underway: the BMW S 1000 RR.

The package of this completely newly developed motorcycle with its 999cc in-line 4-cylinder engine is very compact and light. The dry weight of the motorcycle is 183 kg.

Both its supreme performance figures and its outstanding riding properties make the BMW S 1000 RR an extremely attractive offer in the supersports segment.

The engine has a very compact cylinder head and is narrow in shape. The valves are activated by means of very small, light cam followers, virtually at Formula 1 level in terms of their dimensions. This construction ensures very high engine speeds and allows maximum freedom in engine design in terms of torque and output.

For the supersports bike BMW S 1000 RR, a completely newly developed sports ABS featuring four different modes as well as the dynamic traction control system DTC will be available. The functional principle of the traction control system has been borrowed directly from racing.

The distinctive design of the S 1000 RR reflects the general style of the segment but also clearly represents the brand BMW. The new S 1000 RR will be available in the four finishes Mineral Silver metallic, Acid Green metallic, Thunder Grey metallic and - based on the BMW Motorrad racing colours - Alpine White/Lupine Blue/Magma Red.

The serial production machine BMW S 1000 RR will be presented to the public in the early summer of 2009 but can already be ordered in dealerships. In 2009 the price of the S 1000 RR in Germany is 15,150 euros incl. VAT.

Question is... Would you?

funnily enough they say they will come withing 10% of the jap competitors so we're talking around the 11K mark! which isnt much when u look at the ducati price list, or the new aprilia RSV4 at 15G's!!!

LMAO!!!

BMW are bringing it with some serious bikes.... they look amazing too, im slightly dissapointed the styling isnt more unique because as you strip it down you will see different thinks have been copied and borrowed from other manufacturors styles of already existing road bikes. BUT having said that, the blend is nice, it works and i like it!!

lol yeah check this:


Yeh thats exactly my point and theres a few other things that werent mentioned on there that were taken from other bikes... I think that vid was a bit unfair as it didnt really give you any examples of why the BMW is a great bike...

I dont think theres anything wrong with taken the styling from other sources, i would just prefer them to find their own unique style...

haha yea they just released those picts on MCN today, it looks like its been beaten with the ugly-stick

i know its BMW tradition with the whole lop-sided headlights but one side looks like an R6 and the other is trying to be an old school ZX7R! big mistake, especially with the RSV4 coming out.

however the performance figures on this Beemer are through the roof, its pumping out over 190bhp!!!
