In the 2015 season, BMW Motorrad will contribute to safety in MotoGP by providing the new BMW S 1000 RR as a Safety Bike for the first time. Therefore, the new superbike from Munich will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors, the earlier versions of the RR and BMW HP4, who also fulfilled this role.
The new RR represents the next generation of the superbike, and its improved performance is clear to see at first glance. The superbike has been redesigned from front to rear. The characteristic nose-down/tail-up profile has been made even more dynamic, and embodies the RR’s racing genes. Viewed from the front, the slim profile still features the characteristic split face with asymmetric front headlamps; however, these have swapped sides. The air intake is now considerably larger and located centrally, allowing the intake air to be fed even more effectively.
Once again featuring the very highest technological standards, virtually every component of the new RR has been consistently optimised and further developed to achieve the best possible riding characteristics, handling, traction, safety and user friendliness. Where the drivetrain is concerned, the improved performance of the new S 1000 RR results from a modified cylinder head. The 999 cc, four-cylinder inline engine now generates 199 hp. Handling and acceleration off the line benefit from increased torque. When it comes to electronic rider aid systems, the RR leaves nothing to be desired: equipped with ride modes, race ABS, DTC dynamic traction control and DDC electronic frame, the S 1000 RR is set to reinforce its place at the top of the superbike sector.
Whether on dynamic tours on country roads, in competition on the racetrack, or in action as a Safety Bike in MotoGP, the new S 1000 RR is always the right choice.
