S1000RR Story, From S to… Motorsport
It's just over ten years since BMW shocked the world of supersports with its first epoch-making S1000RR. We look back at the history of BMW's first superbike on the occasion of the debut of the first "motorrad" to bear the capital "M" logo.
When one has a mark with the power of BMW's "M", the badge that indicates the involvement of the Motorsport department and that has characterized the most iconic and legendary dream cars of the Munich brand, he does not spend it lightly. That's why the arrival of the M1000RR caused quite a stir, even before we could see its spec sheet. So let's see what happened to the BMW four-cylinder - how it was possible that that seed, planted in 2009, has grown to give life to the masterpiece you see today.
