Wunderlich S1000RR Curare: Poison Arrow

With 190bhp, a host of high-tech electronics and sprinkling of well-chosen aftermarket bits, the Wunderlich S1000RR is as 'Curare' as it gets. Oh yes, we like it!

The S1000RR Curare (‘Curare’ is some kind of a poison that was once used by South American natives) is the latest from German tuning house Wunderlich, who’ve implemented their own particular brand of makeover artistry to the fastest, most powerful, most exciting BMW motorcycle ever made. Wunderlich claim that the changes they’ve made to the bike improve its aerodynamics and make for more relaxed ergonomics. And with the use of various parts made of titanium and carbonfibre, the S1000RR has lost a good amount of weight as well.

The list of aftermarket parts on the S1000RR Curare includes Sportego handlebars and seat, double bubble screen, adjustable brake and clutch levers, Leo Vince GP Pro exhaust system, remapped ECU and new system controller. With electronics being such a key part of the BMW S1000RR’s performance, we don’t know what effect the new controller/ECU will have on the bike’s performance, but since Wunderlich have established credentials, we suppose it’d all be good. And the bike looks quite all right – that blue/orange paint works for us.
