In November 2018, BMW unveiled their much anticipated 2019 S1000RR at Eicma in Milan. The new bike has undergone some radical style changes and it looks like it'll be a whole second faster on track, 10kg lighter, and easier to control.
With that in mind, we thought we would revisit the 2010 BMW S1000RR as today's bike of the day. One of the original models, this was the first iteration of BMW's first superbike, which changed the way we looked at performance motorcycles forever.
MCN attended the launch of the original bike and said: "BMW’s S1000RR is the German company’s first venture into modern superbike territory and what a serious effort it is.
"Although it shares similar technology to the competition (GSX-R1000, Fireblade, ZX-10R and so on) of DOHC, 16-valves, stacked gearbox and so on, the engine delivers a mighty class leading claimed 190bhp at the back wheel.
"Add a good gearbox, impressive fuel injection and electronics and it all adds up to make the BMW shine brightest. As for handling; the S1000RR was launched at Portugal’s Portimao circuit and couldn’t be faulted around one of the most tortuous tracks going."
