It cuts the power ever so slightly so that you can shift with out using your clutch.

Looks amazing!

I'm no bike expert, but how does it stack up to Japanese bikes? Honda, yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki compared to BMW motorcycles in general?

According to some magazines there is nothing that will touch it. BMW motorcycles never competed against the Japanese bikes since they were to heavy and priced to high. This is the first pure sport bike that will go head to head. The only problem I have is the headlights, WTF?

its lighter and has more power then any other competitor so far... I think they claimed 200 hp... but it came down to 193 i think...

Shift assistant is nothing new there's plenty of them on the market, but this one will work with your bikes ecu, it is basically when you accelerating you just switch gears with no clutch.

I had a buddy with a GsxR 600 and another buddy with a zx6r and handling is a HUGE factor to consider on a bike.... normally a few extra horses wont do you much good if you cant hammer the corners with open throttle on good tires. Also keeping that front wheel down with that much power is another thing to keep in mind. Its a large variation of things to consider.

The bike is well priced for a 1000 putting aside the fact that its a BMW, im real curious to see its stats and actual race numbers/performance in an aggressive race in direct competition with the leaders both Europeans and Japanese.

The front end seems to resemble the Yami's IMO

Yes a 600cc bike is better around a very tight track, having said that todays 1000cc bikes do have a switch that you can select on what type of power you are going to use. For example a GSXR 1000 has 3 settings; 600cc, 750cc and 1000cc. Also it depends on how well the rider is at controlling his throttle.

I love this bike.
Very aggressive pricing considering it's a BMW motorrad.
I to thought it was going to cost more than that.
Wait a couple years and pick up a used one for <$10k.

aggressive indeed, considering highend jap bikes are around the same price or less, and other european bikes are a lot more(Ducati, Aprilia), if this S1000RR can hold its own on the street & track they will sell lots, people won't even wait for a used one.

Looks nice, but I thought they would implement the famous "bmw grill"
