BMW S1000RR — one of the best modern sportbikes. The history of BMW sports motorcycles began in 1992, when the Bavarians released the R1100RS. The modern bike is, of course, much more impressive. It is worth recognizing that the German engineers have done a great job to achieve the current level of the motorcycle.
BMW S1000RR is a race oriented sport bike initially made by BMW Motorrad to compete in the 2009 Superbike World Championship, that is now in commercial production. It was introduced in Munich in April 2008, and is powered by a 999 cc four-cylinder engine redlined at 14,200 rpm.
BMW made 1,000 S1000RRs in 2009 to satisfy World Superbike homologation requirements, but expanded production for commercial sale of the bike in 2010. It has a standard anti-lock braking system, with an optional electronic traction control.
The video starts the story with the R1100RS, R1100S, R1200S and HP2 Sport. These motorcycles have little in common with the BMW S1000RR, released in 2009. Many will begin to describe the history of the BMW S1000RR in 2009, but "FreeWheelie" decided to start in 1992 to show the evolution of the BMW sports motorcycle, in General.
