Everyone was shocked that the production version of the BMW S1000RR wasn’t unveiled at Intermot two weeks ago. Now, it looks like an EICMA release could be on the cards; the road-going version of the S1000RR SBK World Championship contender has been spied undergoing final shakedown testing at Circuito Alabacete in Southern Spain.
>Evident for the first time are the production versions of the turn signals, clocks, exhaust, headstock and other details.
According to the photographer, BMW was testing the S1000RR alongside a
CBR1000RR, which it was visibly out performing while accelerating out
of corners. This confirms the performance advantage we predicted in our
2009 Superbike Showdown.
