The 8-second BMW S1000RR - June 7, 2010, 09:54 AM

It went from zero to ugly real fast as well.....

impressive numbers



The 8-second BMW S1000RR



A couple of years ago, the thought of a BMW establishing itself on top of the superbike pile was laughable. But the BMW S1000RR is doing just that, making the pipe-and-slippers brand the performance bike to have for 2010, eclipsing traditional class leaders like the R1, GSX-R1000 and Hayabusa. Defying convention further, the most powerful liter bike ever has become the go to bike for outlaw street racers and track day fanatics alike, despite its near complete lack of racing success. Need further evidence? People have started putting extended swingarms on them. This Brock's Performance bike is shattering AMA records with an 8.49-second, 158.46mph quarter mile.


That figure is a new record for stock bikes and was achieved only with the addition of external bolt-ons in the form of a full exhaust system and Dynojet ECU, BST carbon wheels, MacIntosh extended swingarm and lowered suspension. In that configuration, it produces 203hp and 80lb/ft of torque at the rear wheel.

Brock's will now add nitrous injection and a few other basic modifications before campaigning the BMW in the AMA Dragbike Supersport class.

Through up the fastest trap speed in the IOM TT Superstock class as well. 189 and some change.
