BMW Motorrad boss Hendrik von Kuenheim has taken the covers off the new Supersports S 1000 RR. This is the bike that will take BMW Motorrad into a new era of high performance road bikes and importantly into Superbike racing in the WSBK and in national classes around the world.

There were no technical details as to power or weight but von Kuenheim did say that it would be in line with other in the class and that it would have traction control and feature a host of innovations that will set the bike apart and add to its road going and track ability.

This is only a racing prototype to give an impression of the total package and there will be further changes made and of course an improvement in quality before it is released. It is a stunning design and there will probably be only minor changes made before it is seen on the track and showrooms.

This release will free up the team as they gather more track time to get the bike ready for next season. No more, ‘No comment’ as they get down to work in getting the S 1000 RR dialled in. The aim is to finish in the top ten in 2009 and a place on the podium in 2010.

This is exciting!
