It looks like it would be good at getting heat away from the engine.

Now with unlimited funds I would love this bike for a track or daily ride, regardless of the Quasi Modo DNA.
It's pricing is right there with other bikes in its class.

Man, you haters crack me up! Do you really think BMW, a performance oriented motorworks company, would bother to spend the money and resources it has available, to venture into WSBK on a whim?

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.

I drive bmw's everyday (cars not bikes) but put it this way. My acura was more fun to drive.. Although it was 500whp


For one. I like the simplicity of bikes. You can bet ur a$$ that bmw has WAY MORE electronics on it than is really needed. Also the simple numbers of bikes make it appealing cause aftermarket is there big time, and it wont break the bank for some mods..

I agree with you, but I still think there are better options on the market right now.

From the article I read about it, it looks to be just slightly more complex as the r1.
