Long known for its extensive line of precision-built automobiles and motorcycles, BMW Motorrad adds to its versatile model line-up with the S1000RR Superbike. The S1000RR is Bavarian Motor Works all-new entry into the burgeoning sportbike market and is sure to introduce many new cutting-edge motorcycle technologies, such as ride-by-wire and traction control that the German company has become renowned for.
The S1000RR is BMW's entry into the competitive sportbike market. The BMW wasted no time making a big splash in the superbike world by taking top spots in several major sportbike shootouts. Could a World Superbike title be on the horrizon?
As opposed to its European competitors, the new Beemer 1000 superbike will utilize a traverse-mounted liquid-cooled Inline-Four displacing 999cc’s, just under the limit for World Superbike competition. Like its Japanese competitors the BMW S1000RR engine makes use of dual overhead camshafts and 4-valves per cylinder. A six-speed transmission and a conventional chain final drive complete the S1000RR powertrain.
For the chassis, the BMW S1000RR will use a unique twin-spar frame and long boomerang-shaped double-sided swingarm both constructed out of aluminum. BMW’s proprietary telelever and paralever suspenion components which it uses on other road-going models will be ditched on the S1000RR and replaced by conventional components including an inverted fork and a monoshock working through a linkage.
Although not yet released, BMW has committed to producing a minimum of 1000 S1000RRs for worldwide release before December 2009 in order to meet the FIM’s homologation requirements for World Superbike Racing.
