The German brand gives a twist to its Superbike, further radicalizing a new version of “High Performance 4” will add better components and technology. The objective is to place it at the forefront of the sport liter.
Introduced globally in late 2009 in the spectacular Portimao circuit, the BMW S 1000 RR quickly stood on top of the superbike, displacing the traditional Japanese mechanical quality and performance.
Now, BMW surprised us with a more “Pro”, ideal for those who make the circuit his second home. The twin-spar aluminum chassis and 193 hp four-cylinder engine remains unchanged so that the main novelties of respect to the basic version are:
- Body decoration and design of instrumentation
- Bike Seat (optional biposto)
- Electronic suspension adjustment DDC (Dynamic Damping Control)
- Control output with 3 levels of action (Launch Control): is the second largest manufacturer incorporating it into a street model after Aprilia RSV4/Tuono APRC. It minimizes the loss of traction drive output after a stop.
- Traction Control revised DTC, with 7 levels of intervention
- Titanium Akrapovic Exhaust
- Forged aluminum rims
- 9 kg less weight (total 199.2 kg)
- The main options include heated grips, HP Racing parts (switchboard, kit calibration, change inverted, laptimer 2D, etc.) and the Competition Pack (seats, carbon fiber parts, racing stickers, blue rims, footrests and special handles, etc).
In addition, the S 1000 RR continues to maintain the ABS sports and the 4 power curves (Rain, Sport, Race and Slick).
Regarding the price, has not yet communicated anything officially, but we estimate to be around €20,000.
