It is only a week until the return of BMW Motorrad to World Championship competition. The first official BMW team since 1956, when Walter Zeller was runner up in the 500 cc World Championship.

We now have our first look at the S 1000 RR in race livery and some of the details on this the most powerful BMW motorcycle ever produced.

The 162 kg (dry) S 1000 RR is powered by a 999 cc four-cylinder wet sump motor (80 x 49.7) with 14:1 compression, fed by a 48 mm Dell’ Orto injection system that will produce 200 hp at 14,000 rpm. In race trim with the 23lt tank topped up the S 1000 RR will be well under 200 kg.

This is an exciting time for BMW Motorrad and all of us with a passion for BMW motorcycles. Be part of it at Phillip Island and meet Troy Corser and Ruben Xaus at Southbank Motorcycles on Tuesday evening at 6.00pm.
