BMW S1000RR revealed in road-trim

Published: 28 October 2008

BMW’s S1000RR superbike has broken cover in finished form testing at Albacete.

The pictures show a near production ready machine complete with final trim details and parts like indicators, number plate hanger and the final exhaust design.

ABS is also evident (the sensor ring can be seen on the left brake disc), and overhead shots show the BMW has a multi-function dashboard with two separate LCD readouts that are likely to display information about the traction control, sports ABS and lap timer as well as the more commonplace speedometer, odometer and trip meters.
