Check out the BMW S 1000 RR US Press Introduction reviewed by Brock Davidson
That is exactly the type of write up I like to read...
Recently dealer support for BMW has been slim at best. What I'm talking about is that there are fewer and fewer BMW motorcycle dealers around. At least that's the way it seems in the Southeast. With this new sport bike they may create enough intrest in the bike that it will be welcomed and supported by the aftermarket world and that would be a win win situation for BMW and the owners of the new bike. jes my .o2
... So the first production run was sold out before they showed up in December, when is the next run ???
They say this bike can easily out run the hayasabusa, gsxr-1000 and the zx-14... ive read the article 2 times and i did not see any time slips to back that up.. i think BMW's bike sales are way down and they are looking for a way back on top. many bikes are bought mainly for dragracing and those i just mention are the top dogs, there is a saying... " if you want to be the man, you got to beat the man".......
I got to sit on one at Miller Motorsports Park last year at the World Superbike races. They are nice but after reading an another article about the electronics on the bike (that can't be turned off), like traction control, ABS, and not mentionedwheelie control,I'll stick with my old Ninja.

Why hasn't there been a 1/4 mi test on one yet? I saw a internet vid on it street racin months ago on utube. Brocks has one, I guess we'll see what it can do when it shows up to race, but until then I don't think hard core dragracers are gonna
bite. Just my .02
