After releasing the onboard video of the all-new 2009 S1000RR, BMW now shows both the street and competition Superbike version in yet another official video racing together where they belong: on the track. It is amazing how Beemer ambitioned to cover the crucial racing and market segments at a time, but 2009’s results (both time laps and sales charts) are eagerly expected as they will most likely speak for themselves.
The inline-four cylinder engine seems to be a smooth power provider while the aluminum twin-spar frame also seems to work perfectly together with the standard swingarm and conventional USD forks. And it doesn’t sound European…I can’t wait to hear it myself.
During the tests undergone at Oschersleben recently, BMW created an onboard video of their new S1000RR. As you can suppose, the bike’s racing abilities are pointed out, but the best of it is that everything happens on a public trackday.
BMW has entered the final stage before showing the green light for production in what concerns the S1000RR superbike.
Caught testing at Albacete, the new bike features details such as the graphics, indicators and number plate hanger and, as MCN reckons, an ABS system is now certitude. Also, the S1000RR is expected to have two separate LCD readouts providing information about the bike’s systems such as traction control and the previously mentioned ABS.
The Intermot saloon in Cologne, Germany was THE event for BMW to unveil the S 1000 RR model on which pilots Ruben Xaus and Troy Corser will compete in the World Superbike Championship.
The Bavarian house doesn’t give much information about the racing model apart from the fact that the engine will deliver 180 horses which will be harnessed by ABS and traction control, but the way it looks says all for the moment.
