Seems like the S1000RR is living up to the hype …

I just stepped off the
new BMW S1000RR at the bike’s press launch held at the Autódromo
Internacional do Algarve in Portimao, Portugal and all I can say is
whatever preconceived notions you had about BMW motorcycles, you can
forget with this bike.
 

It claims to have the best power-to-weight ratio of any open-class
supersport, and after a day in the saddle around the technically
challenging racecourse, it seems that the claim is right on the money.

How do 220 km/h power wheelies while cresting the small hill onto the
front straight sound? How about handling as nimble as the best
litre-bikes currently on the market? Top that off with race ABS and
dynamic traction control, both tunable on-the-fly and both highly
valuable track day tools no one on a 190-plus horsepower bike should be
without.
 

You can read the full report next week on CMG.
