There is something pure about a bike that is built specifically for racing. Many bikes primarily are designed for the consumer market and yes, sometimes they are adapted for racing but they are not pure race machines. Not many people really get the chance to race sport bikes on a track due to the huge cost and risk.
However most of us just need a little taste of what it’s like to hang onto a 200hp rocket for dear life and that's where bikes like the BMW S1000RR come in handy!
Designed specifically to race in the 2009 Superbike World Championship it has turned into an extremely successful consumer sportbike for BMW and for good reason. After many iterations of the BMW S1000RR the bike now features a wet weight of 197kg with a whopping 204hp at 13500rpm! Although the BMW S1000RR is crazy powerful it comes standard with much needed safety aids such as ABS and electronic traction control as standard.
The new BMW S1000RR has a totally new 999cc engine employing BMW’s ShiftCam technology on the intake side, which varies intake valve timing and lift. An ECU-controlled motor switches between low- and high-speed cams at 9,000 rpm in under 10 milliseconds, which produce soft, low-lift, short-duration cams for low-down and midrange torque, then a more aggressive profile cams for peak power production. BMW claims the addition of this system gives the S1000RR a more linear torque curve than its predecessor.
The current BMW S1000RR is available with some very nice extras. The BMW Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) semi-active suspension is still available on the S1000RR as an option, which has been enhanced with updated damping settings and allows on the fly suspension changes through comfort sport and race modes. Also a first of any BMW bikes that the BMW S1000RR is available in an Msport package like their top of the line cars. The Msport package on the BMW S1000RRincludes motorsport paint finish, M carbon fiber wheels, an M lightweight battery, M Chassis Kit with rear ride height adjustment and swingarm pivot, the M Sport seat and a "Pro" riding mode. The package reduces the weight further to 193.5 kg.
As the BMW S1000RR is a true “Thoroughbred Racer” let's take a closer look at it’s past racing career.
During the 2010 FIM Superstock 1000 Championship season, Ayrton Badovini dominated by winning every single race but one on the S1000RR On 13 May 2012, Italian rider Marco Melandri riding for the factory BMW Motorrad team was the first to secure a win for the S1000RR in World Superbike competition at the British round in Donington Park. His teammate Leon Haslam came in second giving BMW a "One Two" finish.
The BMW S1000RR has all of the excellent BMW reliability, comfort and technology but is perfectly married to the true race heritage. The BMW S1000RR is and ideal sportbike for any sportbike fan.
