BMW S1000RR group test: "An exciting and surprising bike"

MCN’s Chief Road Tester Trevor Franklin states,
Quote:
“We’ve just done 200 miles on the Route Napoleon near Cannes in the South of France and it’s clear that out of the crate the BMW S1000RR is an exciting and surprising bike.

"As a package it’s almost complete and is right at the front of the 1000cc pack.
The results will be published on the 16th of December. I got this clip of the S1000RR vs R1




Here's a link to the route. There are some very nice twisties there on D6085.

Steve Atlas talks S1000RR

I just finished Steve Atlas' expose' on the S1000RR. It's a quick primer for those who are seriously considering this bike for their stable and want to know a little more than "where do I insert the key and show me how to put in some fuel. It's a quick read with some graphic art to make the words a little more understandable for the novice in technical motorcycle speak.

I'll be conducting a daily search to gather as much information about this coming "Rice Crusher"

S1000RR-First UK BMW S1000RR dyno test: 183bhp at the wheel

If you're looking for more horses between your legs the "Rice Crusher" has documented proof in the UK. I'm wondering how the courtrooms around the world will look in the coming months. MCN seems to be out front with their reporting on the "Rice Crusher."
