Pricing for the 2010 BMW S1000RR has been released in Italy and it's €140 cheaper than the 2009 Yamaha R1. €15,850 ($22,373) buys you a 193bhp road-going missile, but you'll need to add €950 for ABS, €1,250 for ABS + traction control, €370 for the quick-shifter and €220 for an alarm. If you want an S1000RR that looks halfway decent, the red, white and blue paint raises the price by a further €600. All that brings the price of a fully equipped S1000RR to €18,290 ($25,815). Luckily, BMW USA says we can expect to pay much less here in the land of the free and the home of the sub prime mortgage.
Just like in Europe, expect US S1000RR pricing to be competitive with
the Yamaha R1 and other Japanese liter bikes. Unofficially, BMW says
the price will be "under $14,000" putting it in the same ballpark as
the $12,390 R1.
