S 1000 RR, what do you make of it. Well, it’s not a code that every gang in the world is interested in. It’s just the name of the lightest bike in supersports category. Now you get it, it is the BMW S 100 RR, lovingly called the RR.
BMW HP-4 is officially the lightest 4-cylinder bike in the 1000cc class. Fill the tank almost 90% for a long ride and still it weights just 199kg’s, and its dry weight is 169 kg. Don’t go by the weight the bike still has enough to generate 193 hp.
It will be launched later this year in continuation with the company’s HP or high performance bikes lineup which started in 2005. But after HP2 Enduro, HP2 Megamoto and MP2 Sport, this is the first supersports and 4-cylinder in this lineup.
As for the bike, it is worth it with all the technological advances featured and fitted with race ABS, IDM setting and dynamic traction control. Just wait for the bike to zoom past, you will want one.
