BMW have revealed their S1000RR road bike in undisguised, finished form at the Jerez MotoGP round.

The bike wased as safety bike for the MotoGP race weekend in a surprise public appearance before the official unveiling at Monza World Superbikes next weekend.

MCN has exclusively revealed the BMW S1000RR is putting out around 10bhp more than any other 1000cc rival – 182bhp was the peak power figure on a leaked dyno graph obtained by MCN.

We know it has a four-way adjustable ABS system and race-derived traction control.

What we don’t know for certain are the full technical details of the engine which is thought to be one of the most compact four-cylinder motors ever built.
