2014 BMW S1000R Rendered
Raffaele's machine is very cool, of course, but it's just a rendering, unfortunately. It brings forth a solid S1000RR heritage, though this approach might not be the most appealing to some. That is, people who would like the see an actual new bike instead of the old S1000RR with chopped fairing.
What should definitely be retained in full from the superbike is the mighty 193hp engine, possibly with a re-geared transmission to add a more streetable character to this roadster.
Now, some say that BMW will "dumb" down the new bike, and we can only hope that it will still be able to put up a great fight with the craziest roadster of the moment, the KTM 1290 Super Duke R.
