BMW S1000RR Burns on the Dyno

In case the bike you’re about to see burn is indeed a 2014 BMW S1000RR, then we’re looking at either a very rich fellow who doesn’t care about how he spends his money, or a very stupid guy who no longer has a working motorcycle... and BMW is not going to repair it under warranty.

The event seems to take place during a motorcycle rally. It’s not uncommon to see dynos present at such rallies, as riders willing to test their bikes power and torque after various improvements are easy to find. And even a manufacturer or seller of aftermarket parts could benefit from a dyno, showing potential customers that its products are more than good looks and aggressive sound.

The title mentions the new naked S1000R machine based on the full-faired BMW superbike, but there must be a mistake there. And the three “gills” we can see on the bike’s side panel are just enough proof we’re looking at an S1000RR, though with no chances to tell the year. Even more, the usual right-hand, low-swung exhaust seems to have been either relocated or removed.

Furthermore, the bike looks like having been tampered with a bit2, as superbikes are usually limited to 299 km/h (185 mph) and reach higher speeds only when “unlocked”. Whichever of these is true, one thing is obvious: that engine (and possibly more) is toast.
