Bmw's motorrad division came out swinging with their very 1st attempt at a SS bike, the S1000RR. It blew the competition away in numerous comparision tests. What a machine*rockout*

This new HP4 is another example of great engineering *rockout*

There were also rumors that BMW might make a 600cc SS called the "S6RR/S600RR"

Time to start saving my pennies for a Bimmer Bike *love*

I'm seriously keeping my fingers crossed for a 600CC sport bike from BMW. I'd get on that like a fat kid on cake!

if the Hp4 came .6L, i'd give up the 600rr any day for it!
