BMW has set US pricing for the 193bhp, 404lbs (dry) 2010 BMW S1000RR at just $13,800, placing it in direct competition with the $12,390 2009 Yamaha R1 and the $12,899 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000. The optional ABS brakes cost $1,000, but add only 5.5lbs to the overall weight, bringing that in more expensive, but lighter than the $13,999, 461lbs (wet) 2009 Honda CBR1000RR ABS. >
Other options are the ABS and Dynamic Traction Control combo ($1,480), quick shifter ($450), alarm ($395) and the so-much-better-looking-it-should-be-mandatory red, white and blue paint ($750). Look for US deliveries to begin in December.
