2009 BMW S1000 RR - January 3, 2009, 10:20 AM

http://www.s1000rr.com/


Hello fans of the racing seat posture.
For all of you who have motorbike fuel flowing through your veins, we now present the first BMW Superbike, along with the first individual BMW Motorrad blog.Up-close Superbike adventure in the Internet and on the BMW Motorrad (race) track. This is a great, almost historical step for a tradition-rich motorcycle manufacturer like us. And we are just a little bit excited. But if not now, then when? So we are now entering a new chapter in the company's history and are about to initiate what is perhaps our biggest activity since the Boxer was first set in motion. But we are ready for it!
Superbike. The word itself stands for perseverance, an uncompromising attitude, and pure-blooded racing qualities – right down to the last detail. To live up to this claim right from the start and to ensure that we are bringing a mature piece of motorcycling engineering up to the starting line, we have put together a team of Superbike specialists, a team which not only feels the magical attraction of a pure-blooded racing machine, but has been living it for a long while already.
Power, performance, speed, strength, fighting spirit, perfection, an uncompromising attitude and controllability. Together with decades of experience in engine construction – after all, BMW does stand for Bavarian Motor Works. Despite the great intensity of the development work, a Superbike is filled with so much motorcycling fascination that we simply had to take this step.
And now it really is about to arrive. From early 2009, you can order it from your BMW Motorrad dealer, and we will look forward to the first Superbike world championship season in 2009.
At the beginning, there were of course a number of difficult decisions to make. The task was to bring aspects such as running gear, design geometry, performance, ridability, and regulator systems in line with the well-known BMW strengths. We were aware from the start that we didn't have to reinvent the world of the Superbike, but we wanted to be in on the game from the start. This is our claim, and we aim to live up to it. Innumerable concepts and solutions were discussed, but one thing was clear right from the start – it had to be an in-line four-cylinder. Compact, powerful, and with optimum control. With a design that is as sleek and muscular as possible. For us, the BMW S 1000 RR has to live up to the limits of what a Superbike can do. And otherwise, no experiments. Typical, high-quality components, such as the central ram-air entry, Öhlins TTX components (in the racer), aluminium bridge frame, large swinger arm and fine aerodynamic panelling. The optimum combination of speed, air inflow and outflow. It will also be interesting for us to hear what you have to say on the subject of integrating electronic riding aids in a racing bike. They serve to enhance and secure the performance of a powerful sports machine like the S 1000 RR. You can expect a newly designed ABS as well as a specially coordinated traction control in the serial model. And because our developers are interested in optimum ridability, no aspect is ignored if it concerns the quality and safety of the BMW S 1000 RR's ability to accelerate and brake. Enjoyment and then more enjoyment. The new joy of the ultimate riding machine. To live up to this claim, we have paid great attention to a number of further aspects. For instance, weight: it must be neither too light nor too heavy. Excessive lightness is not only an advantage when so much power is available. The standard model already weighs over 200kg. The bike's geometric and ergonomic design must be such that it promotes optimum handling and racing use. The bike's dimensions are oriented more towards the Supersport than the Superbike class, which means that it has a very compact structure, with a maximum concentration of all masses in the centre of the bike.







What I do in life will echo through eternity.

Really? You must be talking about cars. The bikes have a good rep and dont have the problems I hear about the cars. I belong to several BMW bike boards and dont see too many problems.

BMW can't make a light bike to save their lives! I bet this piece of junk will be 500 lbs!!

Looks cool though

Snipped from a thread on ADV

Dry Weight: 183kg (good ordinarily, but amazing if you consider what comes standard)
ABS standard - it is settable to 4 different levels of action: off ... max
Traction Control standard
Around 190 hp

Good for BMW... gotta admire the Germans for making (and selling) more and more bikes:

good engineering, but lacks identity. I thought it was a R6 at first reaction. I hate the flat engine, but at least is true to BMW
