text size: A- A+
Suspension is handled via a pair of massive 46mm front forks. Dual front Brembo four-piston radial calipers grab 320mm rotors, while out back a single-piston Brembo caliper grabs a 220mm disc. BMW have taken steps toward improving safety with its ABS optional system developed for the race track and DTC Dynamic Traction Control.
"The S 1000 RR represents an entirely new dimension for BMW Motorrad and the sport bike segment. At this price, we expect a significant number of customers to take advantage of our Pre-Sale program. In fact, all of our first month's production has already been sold through this program," stated the press release at the launch of the bike.
The bike costs $13,800 (under EUR10,000), which is good enough to compete with Japanese rivals like the Yamaha R1 and Honda CBR1000 RR.
Options for the S 1000 RR are available at the following prices:
- Motorsports Paint Scheme: $750 (EUR535)
- Race ABS: $1,000 (EUR713)
- Race ABS & Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) $1,480 (EUR1055)
- Gear Shift Assistant: $450 (EUR312)
- Anti Theft Alarm: $395 (EUR281)
