BMW’s S 1000 RR supersport bike has gone naked, becoming an aggressive predator of the streets, thanks to the German tuning specialists at Wunderlich, the same guys behind the Poisoned Arrow project. Dubbed Piranha, the transformation kit gives the bike extra performance wrapped up in a very menacing look.

Highlights if the S 1000 RR Piranha include an aggressive carbon-fibre fairing, completed by dynamic side panels. In addition to that, the innovative Xenon headlight, which needs only one bulb, has an electro-magnetically actuated shutter that makes the switch from low to full-beam.

The lightweight race hump reveals an adjustable number plate mount that comes equipped with LED indicators with built-in brake and rear light functions (E-certified). A very flat LED bar ensures that the number plate is correctly illuminated.

The SportErgo seat is available in raised versions, while the footrest system can be adjusted in any direction. Also the easy-to-fit Performance Box, optimized collector, PiperCross sports air filter, and SBK sport exhaust improve the performance figures.

The naked Piranha is 8 kg (17.6 pounds) lighter than the original S 1000 RR supersport machine, while the tubular handlebar conversion enhances the cornering qualities of the bandit.
