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

I absolutely cannot believe the price! The closest thing they currently have to the S1000RR right now is the HP2 Sport and that's a $30K bike, IIRC.

Yes a 600cc bike is better around a very tight track, having said that today’s 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.
