BMW Motorbike Achieves New World Speed Record - 204.784 Mph
Sills was the holder of the previous record, which he surpassed by 4.5 mph (7.2 km/h). However, another record was set that day, but this time only a national (US) one. Erin Hunter managed to set a record of 205.566 mph (330.808 km/h), on the same BMW S1000RR bike.
Hunter went on to say: “We’ve had the good fortune to race a number of different bikes throughout our careers, including streamliners and the BMW S 1000 RR is incredibly stable at high speeds. The super stable platform allows us to focus on our racing skills without having to worry about the performance of the bike. You can trust it and go all out.”
