BMW S1000RR at the California Superbike School

The American division of BMW Motorrad teamed up with the California Superbike School, offering riders the chance to improve their riding skills on, as the manufacturer says, "the lightest sportbike ever produced." Trained professionals will be guiding enthusiasts beginning in 2010 in mastering BMW’s S 1000 RR superbike.

The school has 48 events scheduled at race tracks around the country beginning in March. Riders will have the option of using their own bike or renting one of the school’s 2010 BMW S 1000 RR motorcycles for one- or two-day training sessions.

“We would not be content offering a motorcycle as powerful as the S 1000 RR without access to top-shelf rider training,” said Todd Andersen, BMW Motorrad USA Marketing Manager. “We want S 1000 RR riders to have the skills and confidence to maximize their ownership experience with this state-of-the-art superbike.”

The S1000RR superbike is already available in BMW dealerships across the US, priced at $13,800, and it is part of a Pre-Sale program that runs through December 31.

Additionally, BMW Motorrad offers the following options:
  • Motorsports Paint Scheme: $750
  • Race ABS: $1,000
  • Race ABS & Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) $1,480
  • Gear Shift Assistant: $450
  • Anti Theft Alarm: $395

The motorcycle is powered by a 999cc in-line four-cylinder engine that develops 193 bhp, with the dry weight rated at 183 kg. The S1000RR features the first-ever four-stage Race ABS system with settings for Rain, Sport, Race and Slick conditions. The water-cooled four-cylinder inline power unit is developing maximum output of 142 kW (193 hp) at 13,000 rpm and revving up to a maximum speed of 14,200 rpm. Maximum torque of 112 Nm (82.5 lb-ft) comes at 9,750 rpm.
