Fans of fast two-wheeled machines are a different breed. It’s takes a helping of madness to do silly speeds in a car, but doing the same when you don’t have a hi-tech monocoque shell and all manner of airbags and safety equipment to keep you in one piece is borderline madness. The thing is, if you’ve ever managed to spend some time on two wheels, even with a small motor, you’ll know how that feeling of freedom is addictive and can even double as stress-relief. Hitting the highways and doing a few flat-out sections with the speedo climbing above the 200 km/h mark is actually good for you, it can sharpen the senses, improve concentration and even give you some decent cardio. We’re not condoning doing these highly illegal speeds of course, and those are our own thoughts that are 100% NOT fact-based, but it makes sense. Well as long as you keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down.
Other new features of the BMW S 1000 RR includes an M Chassis Kit as standard with an adjustable swinging arm pivot point and a raised rear end, a lightweight M, a USB charging port in the rear section that also sees a redesigned rear section and shorter number plate holder, an M GPS Mouse Adapter and a new GoPro holder to document riding antics. There’s also an easier rear wheel assembly thanks to loss-proof axle bushings and chamfered brake pads and brake anchor plate.
