There are few motorcycles in this world that make it feel like an absolute honor to ride them. I've felt privileged upon just a few rare occasions since we started Motorcycle Thailand. The BMW S1000RR looks the part and the road handling is perfect.
The BMW S1000RR is quite fast, what is partly because the motorcycle is basically the BMW WSB championship contender in its most basic form, lacking the semi-active suspension and lots of carbon-fiber bodywork of the BMW HP4 version which is much closer to what they race in the WSB championship.
Looking at the 2014 BMW S1000RR you will discover that BMW is targeting the same market segment, 1000cc sportsbikes, in which the Japanese big four rule supreme for many years. The BMW S1000RR is powered by a 999cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 16 DOHC valves engine which produce a maximum power of 193 horsepower (144kW) at 13,000rpm with a maximum torque of 112Nm at 9,750rpm. Which can accelerate you from a standstill to 100km/h in just 3.46 seconds, and from 80 to 120km/h in just 1.29 seconds. The BMW S1000RR is surely one of the most powerful four-cylinder sportsbikes on the market and it comes with some sophisticated electronics.
For 2014 BMW has changed the front-end, which reinforces the sharpening effects of the changes BMW made to the steering geometry of the S1000RR last year. As a result, the German sportsbike roll-rotates into corners more intuitively and with slightly more urgency than most of its competitors, despite a 1432mm wheelbase and what feels like a low center of gravity.
The BMW S1000RR is an easy to get comfortable with motorcycle with the potency to keep an owner happy and excited throughout it lifespan...
