2009 BMW S1000RR Preview

Motorcycle.com previews the 2009 BMW S1000RR. Be sure to read the article and let us know what you think of this new ultra-sport literbike.



BMW Motorrad’s new president stunned the world when he officially announced a new ultra-sport literbike built to take on the established Japanese competitors both on the sales floor and the World Superbike Championship.

The new bike is dubbed the S1000RR, and it marks a bold new direction for the formerly staid German brand.

“We are confident that we will be able to start the Superbike World Championship next year with a convincing all-round package, and that our series motorcycle will be just as convincing,” said Hendrik von Kuenheim, a 20-year veteran of BMW and now the General Director of BMW’s motorcycle division. “In both terms of both its technology and price, our Supersports will be absolutely competitive.”

Well, its kinda R6 meets GSXR meets ZX10...I know this is the race version and not the street homologation so it is bare but...It will be well engineered and go like hell. Downsides are it will probably cost 2 Ducati's or 3 R1s...

says competitive pricing, but that could be a 1500$ more then the others...or of the new aprilia or 1098S price... Time will tell, but a new 675 triple would be cool, could really get the AMA formula extreme going a little better with more options and inspire Triumph to get there first new 675 out to replace the three year old current model.

Its looking nice its my dream.... its engine has a very compact cylinder head and is narrow in shape. The valves are activated by means of very small, light cam followers, virtually at Formula 1 level in terms of their dimensions. This construction ensures very high engine speeds and allows maximum freedom in engine design in terms of torque and output.
