And you street riders couldn't enjoy it any other way if the lower end had the throttle response of the top end you couldn't ride it in any sort o traffic situation.May be. But it's a helluva damn good two-stroke!!
There were some rumors saying that the early S1000RR had its roots with Suzuki because of collaboration when BMW entered the super sports market.CBR rides like a 2 stroke. RSV4 would be track winner with better electronics. Ducati is cool. BMW wins overall.
Ah ... good to know. Thanks for the info.@artthury there was no collab between BMW and Suzuki. BMW, like most manufacturers bought a GSX-R1000 and put their motor in the chassis as a test mule. Suzuki is known for a good-turning motorcycle hence they were the benchmark. The keen eye will notice Suzuki and BMW are the only 1000cc bikes with a 23.2 degree rake angle. Everyone else is in the 24-25 degree range....
Thanks for the correction. CycleWorld.com is messed up. I should have looked at the real sourceWheelbase: S1000RR = 1,441 mm or 56.73228 inches
Yeah, I always go to the manufacturer's site first. Cycle World must have the stretched versionThanks for the correction. CycleWorld.com is messed up. I should have looked at the real source
An icon among superbikes. Are you more interested in the hundredths of a second that the seconds? We understand. So you can make an RR even faster yourself – for an added boost in performance at the limits and a mercilessly accomplished appearance.www.bmwmotorcycles.com
