S1000RR - BMW Superbike Empty S1000RR - BMW Superbike

Post by JR on 24th July 2008, 14:07

Such a huge step for BMW to return to competitive racing, this bike deserves it’s own thread.

There are some post elsewhere on this forum but they are scattered.

The project was initially dubbed 190/190, the objective being to achieve at least 190hp with a bike no heavier than 190kg.

This from MCN-UK:

"The motorcycle is named the S1000RR, and BMW plans to produce 1000 road-going versions in 2009 to satisfy World Superbike homologation requirements.

The road-going version is due to feature traction control, and BMW is working towards a target weight of 190kg, and power of 190bhp.

BMW has also specified that the road-going version should be comfortable to ride and easy to move around on, despite being light and compact.

Adrian Roderick, general manager of BMW Motorrad UK told MCN that the S1000RR is unlikely to be in dealers until early 2010, as the World Superbike homologation rules give the firm until December 2009 to build road-going motorcycles.

While the firm has yet to set the price for the road motorcycle, it is aiming to keep it competitive, relative to Japanese superbikes.

MCN estimates the model would need to be priced around the £10,000 mark to satisfy that requirement."


The following images are obviously the bike in full race trim………very unlike that the road version will be with all the carbon and fancy suspension.

Excellent Pics - and thank you for the general feedback on this. Obviously your name is already on the order list. Hopefully the launch of this superbike will forever put to rest the feeling under the general motorbike fraternity that Beemers are slow bikes for old men. I cannot wait to see this in action on the international circuit. Regards. LeRoy

Oops. I turned my back on super bikes for 2 reasons. First I usually ride myself “bang” and secondly there was not a BMW badge on the side. Now this new addition is cancelling one of my reasons. I may be able to ride this beast if they detune it to 189 hp.

That way they can creep up on the opposition in WSB.

Just hope the mirrors/indicators are easily removable (for track days off course only, we don't want to be illegal Wink ) or at least unobtrusive (right english word scratch )

Although not confirmed, I heard "unofficially" that it will be very competitively priced, like in the same range as other superbikes in it's class. Unfortunately we will have to wait bounce

Excuse me if I am being stupid here:

Why is the chain on the left-hand side, as far as I know all the BMW's with chains like the 650's and the ones with belts (F800's) all sit on the right-hand side. The only exception is the G450X, also left-hand side.

Please ignore if this is a VERY dof question......

Thanks

Don’t know if there is a technical explanation but for one thing, if you successfully want to compete in the Superbike market, make sure the basic setup is the same as other Superbikes.

I’m a bit suspicious of this photo though, it might be a photoshop job (albeit a very good one)

All the Japannese & Italian superbikes have their chains on the left hand side. I guess there must be a technical reason for it Very Happy

As the gear selector is standard on the lefthand side it just makes sense to have the gearbox and gearbox output shaft on the left hand side of most bikes. It makes for less complexity etc. Not sure why BM chose to vary scratch
