It was one of the bikes that were expected to test for a while, and finally the long-awaited day between the curbs is here. Here is of the new BMW S1000RR MY 2015.
The imperative in the design of the model 2015 was the “User Friendly”, that is, the ease of use. But at the same time the new S1000RR has been provided with technical solutions and options that closer than ever to a race bike. On the track is very strong and loved it because it makes you feel like a real pilot when you drive. After all this is the dream that every biker leather suit in his heart. A game for large, expensive, but not overpriced in our opinion, given the studies and evidence behind a very sophisticated model.
Yes, because such a motion is the result of a development carried out in parallel to the studies and research of the demanding world of WSBK racing department. This is confirmed by some of the numbers are shared between this plate and superbike with arrows and powerful queens of the circuits. Accelerations that reach the threshold of 2 seconds from 0 to 100km / h, power to weight ratios now embarrassing, quietly speeds exceeding 300km/h.
Since 2008, BMW has been able to make great strides with its 4-cylinder super sports car, which has hit high in the two-wheeler market, leaving appreciate a budget for technical and cutting-edge electronics and driving style only and very precise. Giant steps were saying, which is a heavily revised model for 2015, a motion that changes in looks and technical features.
The aesthetic uses now a tail more inclined upwards, a new twin headlights, side panels that make it even more slender and attractive, more fairing stretched down which includes an air intake and a small lower lip and some details in the fairing and in the lines of the tank. As regards the structure, the frame keeps the schema with a twin-spar aluminum forged and welded to the four elements, although now the shape and curvature of the central area have been redesigned in favor of an angle of the steering tube greater than 0,5 degrees.
It shortens the extraction of the fork sliders, with a trail increased to 96.5 mm which increases manageability without weighing on the stability of the bike. Also implemented the DDC system, Dynamic Damper Control, now includes an upgrade to the Race ABS. What stands out most to the eye (and heart) are the 199 hp of maximum power and increased torque at low and medium engine speeds peaking at 113 Nm. At 12,000 rev / min. The other ingredients that make this recipe really exaggerated German, are also the 4 kg less than the previous generation, ie 179 kg and 201 kg dry with bike in running order and with a full tank of fuel.
These numbers can only ensure responsiveness and maneuverability of which only one 600 is capable of, all accompanied by a propeller always ready and powerful, progressive over a period of use ranging from 3,000 to 13,000 revolutions per minute. To get the most (and especially without risking) a bike that delivers 200 hp, the ground is always the best track, although road traction control and ABS are able to avoid the worst errors of duty, leaving it the pilot the opportunity to decide between 5 different maps for the engine: Rain, Sport, Race, Slick.e User. We do not know the final price of the new S 1000 RR MY 2015, which will be unveiled at the Milan EICMA Motor Show 2014, but we can speculate that the figure will be between 17,000 and 18,000 €.
