After launching the super-awesome S1000RR in 2009, BMW Motorrad have been having a quiet laugh, watching Japanese manufacturers scrambling around trying to catch up with the 193-horsepower Bavarian superbike. And the blitzkrieg is not stopping anytime soon, for BMW have now announced the 2012 S1000RR, which features significant improvements over its predecessor.

‘The primary objectives were even greater riding precision and agility, a punchier power build-up, and more sensitive response,’ claim BMW, for the 2012 S1000RR. ‘Like its predecessor, the new RR knows no compromise and improvements made to the new S1000RR include handling, high-speed stability and engine performance,’ they add.

So, what you really need to know is this – the 2012 BMW S1000RR weighs 204 kilos (206.5kg, with Race ABS) and its barking-mad inline-four produces 193 horsepower. Along with Race ABS, it also has a Dynamic Traction Control system and both systems have been configured to work in perfect harmony. The new S1000RR’s chassis, suspension and steering geometry feature significant revisions, in the interests of better handling and steering accuracy. The instrument cluster has been redesigned for better readability, there are some design tweaks to the tail section and the fairing, and new colours include red, white and blue. Optional accessories for the new S1000RR include an HP titanium exhaust system, HP race data logger and heated grips.

The 2012 S1000RR sure looks super-hot and we think it'll continue to be the fastest, most powerful streetbike you can buy anywhere. Awesome!!!
