BMW has just sent us a link to a new video of both the S1000RR racer and accompanying camo-clad street version. Unlike Aprilia, BMW occasionally pauses the awful rock soundtrack to let us hear the inline four in anger, which is pretty awesome.
The cuts between the telephoto shots of the high-revving street bike and the close, wide angles of the menacing, low growling racer are especially nice.
The machine looks fantastic, with the gills giving a bit of that traditional quirkiness the company’s die-hard followers feared would be lost.
BMW launched the video on their web tv, still in beta. While we love the idea, the image quality is still a bit shoddy. We’re hoping they see the light and switch to Vimeo. And would it be so hard to get something besides cheezy Euro-rock? Or how about a video with nothing but dynamic cuts of the sound of the bikes going around the track?
