Officially Official: BMW unleashes all the details on S 1000 RR superbike !

BMW has finally pulled the wraps off its new S 1000 RR superbike, and let's just say we're anything but disappointed. First, the most important bits: 193 horsepower at 13,000 RPM, 82.5 lb-ft of torque at 9,750 RPM, 455.3 pounds with a full tank of gas. For those keeping track – which is probably just about anyone interested enough to read this post – those statistics are enough to give the big Beemer the most horsepower and best power-to-weight ratio of all literbikes intended for public consumption.

Technophiles and anyone else wanting to post the best lap times possible will also be pleased to know that the S 1000 RR will be available with factory ABS and an extremely advanced traction control system. There's also an HP Gearshift Assistant that will allow for full-power clutchless upshifts.

Surely the most controversial element of the bike's otherwise conventional styling will be the asymmetrical headlights, which are the only immediately noticeable link to the rest of BMW's motorcycle lineup. Expect U.S. sales to begin early in 2010 for what's expected to be a rather attractive price. Want to know more? Click past the break to see a video of the bike in action and BMW's official press release.

hayabusa makes a pretty crappy track bike. its just a big bike that has a high top speed. most bike will destroy a busa around a track.

i like it...although the headlights look kinda weird.

Oh my

Love it, asymmetry and all! Yum...

Has a lot of features from the most current models of the Yamaha R6 and Honda CBR600RR, but especially the R6 with the sharp, sculpted tail.

Funny, Ducati incorporated a lot of the Japanese styling on their 1098 and 848 as well... Hmmm.

(R6)


(600RR - I miss her )

Ducati didn't copy the Japs, they copy Ducati. Ducati had the styling since the 916.

Most definitely.

I'm not denying that Ducati were the ones to coin a 'sportier' looking bike (We Italians are always on top of our game! haha!!)... I just see a lot of resemblances to the Yamaha and Honda bikes that were release prior to the 1098 and 848.

I agree and that's why you'll see me on my 999 more than the 1098s. Anyways went to the BMW dealership and got my deposit back. It has a lot of cool tech but man is it ugly. I ask myself, how would it look in the garage next to three Ducs?

^^ it'll be the one without the oil leak puddle under it!

Duc's are the "Harley's" of the sportbike world... unreliable, overpriced & over rated
