BMW S1000SR Naked

BMW is already well ahead in the development of a naked version of its class-leading S1000RR superbike as these spy shots taken at a BMW test facility reveal.

The naked S1000RR – to be called the S1000SR according to insiders – looks highly developed with a specially designed half-fairing with a passing resemblance to that seen on the Aprilia RSV4 Tuono.

It’s been a relatively quiet 18 months for BMW with only the revamped S1000RR superbike and the two 650cc scooters appearing as new models. It's not clear when the naked S1000 will be launched.

The technical specification of the bike is also unknown. There is a chance BMW has taken the brave step of just ripping off the fairing and leaving the 197bhp inline four-cylinder motor, chassis and running gear alone – changing only the handlebars for a more upright riding position.

This would be a unique step, as every other naked bike derived from a superbike, such as the Ducati Streetfighter and Aprilia RSV4 Tuono, have had power softened and some hefty chassis changes too. MCN expects a slightly lower power output of around 160bhp.

What do you want from a naked S1000RR? A savage, full-power naked or a slightly softened, firendlier bike?
sweeet

Pretty cool, hope they don't plan on just ripping off the fairings, putting handle bars on, and selling it for only a grand less though...

I say it has potential...

The B-King, although on a different chassis so it's a tad heavier, has the same motor taken out of the Hayabusa.

I'd love for BMW to make this beast, I'm a huge fan of naked bikes.

I'd be all over that. Ashley wants the RR but it never really did it for me. It was cool, but it didn't make me want to go out and spend the money. A naked version however, THAT I could get into!

Oh they'll build them alright... for Europe where nakeds are popular. Whether they bring it stateside is questionable. The Big Four have finally started litre nudes agains, but they don't appear to be flying out of the showroom floor. TuonoV4 and Z1000 can hardly be called naked, as they're covered with enough plastics that the engines are not exactly very exposed.

Suzuki had a one-yr one-hit wonder with the B-King. No doubt killed by the Great Recession. That's my current favorite and if one cheap enough comes along, I may have to add it to the collection.

Triumph seems to be the only one that can hawk some serious naked goods. I would buy the new Speed Triple R if it weren't so darn expensive.

Maybe this MadMax version is BMW's way to gauging public reaction:
Wunderlich MadMax 01
