Wunderlich Presents BMW S 1000 RR Poisoned Arrow

German tuning house Wunderlich decided to give a special treatment to the BMW S 1000 RR supersport bike, inspired by the poison used by Brazilian Indians on their arrow tips. Dubbed Poisoned Arrow, the bike benefits from a number of visual treats, as well as from technical and ergonomic improvements.

Decked out in a Gulf endurance racing-style paint job, this machine comes with a LeoVince GP-style titanium exhaust, painted rims double bubble screen, as well as Sportego handlebars and seat. In fact, the tuners say the “ActiveComfort” SportEgo seat delivers improved seat comfort and better hold in hang-offs.

With a non-slip upholstery, the seat comes available in versions with a 2 to 4cm higher cushion. “The rider can move the bike beneath him or her significantly more effectively over the centre of gravity. Cornering is noticeably lighter, and the bike's agility is increased in all riding situations,” Wunderlich says.

The guys, however, did not reveal the bike’s performance figures, so we don’t know the exact effect of the new ECU. However, if it were to believe the German specialists, the torque has been optimized, resulting in spontaneous high acceleration with finely tuned control characteristics.

Pricing of the complete conversion rises to nearly EUR2,000/$2,800. The overview of the built-in main components, as released by Wunderlich, is detailed below:
  • “PowerSportego” handlebar conversion
  • “VarioLever” hand levers adjustable in length and reach
  • “ActiveComfort” SportErgo seat
  • “DoubleBubble" sports screen
  • Easy tail conversion
  • Compatible with racing tail (not illustrated): Wunderlich aluminium number plate mount and indicators with built-in rear/brake light functions
  • Kellermann indicators with built-in brake/rear light (rear)
  • Wunderlich crash protectors
