No update to the 2013 BMW S1000RR's electronics package, but the bike remains powerful, fast and capable as ever. And you can now buy it in metallic grey...
BMW have announced the 2013 S1000RR, which is now available in metallic granite grey. It’s a bit disappointing to see that the bike has not been updated in any other way – after the Ducati Panigale came out, we were hoping BMW would update the S1000RR’s electronics package for 2013, but that hasn’t happened.
Of course, the S1000RR remains a massively powerful and very, very fast and capable motorcycle – its near-200bhp inline-four is clearly at the head of the pack of all litre-class superbikes. And with bits like Race-ABS, dynamic traction control (DTC), stiff and lightweight aluminum twin-spar chassis and fully adjustable high-spec suspension, this BMW is right up there with the best of the best from Europe and Japan.
The 2013 BMW S1000RR will be in showrooms by August this year and the bike will be available with optional extras like an HP titanium exhaust system and HP race data logger.
