European bike for Japanese price: 2009 BMW S 1000 RR Superbike


Posted on by 1

We certainly know that the 2009 BMW S 1000 RR will make its debut at the World Superbike race on May 29th at Miller Motorsports Park, but we’ve long been wondering and digging for information regarding the all-new bike’s price and couldn’t find any clue whatsoever. But now we’ve just heard that the two-wheeled Beemer will not only be close to Japanese bikes in matters of performance, but in what concerns the price too.

Pieter de Waal, Vice President of BMW Motorrad USA said: "We intend to take the four Japanese head-on. We did not intend to build a motorcycle like Ducati does or KTM does. We wanted to build a mainstream motorcycle,"

Expected to be priced within 10% of the Japanese liter bikes, the 2009 BMW S 1000 RR will be one hell of a German bang for the buck. That translates into approximately $15,000, the price which will help show the market’s preferences between Japanese and European as we’ve been long hearing that if these lasts wouldn’t have been so expensive then people would have bought them in a much greater number.
