BMW S1000RR – One of the Top Ten Fastest Motorbike

If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, you will surely love this motorcycle with all its awesome features. I have personally loved this bike for it performance and durability. I have never seen a motorcycle as great as this one and I am sure that it can be one of the best motorcycles ever. The stability and performance is at par and its over all appearance is simply stunning and breath-taking.

The size of the task BMW undertook 8 years ago to build a new, full-on superbike is difficult to exaggerate. For years, Japanese motorbikes such as the Honda Fireblade, Suzuki GSX-R1000, Yamaha R1 and Kawasaki ZX-10R have all displayed the excellence of Japanese motoring and engineering and these will also be featured in our top 10 fastest motorbike countdown.

Buyers will look first at outright and overall performance of a bike before choosing to buy it, with manufacturers such as Suzuki, Honda and other Japanese motorbike makers, have all built a unique reputation with consumers in developing and providing some of the worlds best motorbikes and biking technology, as proven by the fact that a lot of the bikes on our top 10 fastest motorbike list are Japanese bikes. BMW in this case never have had that unique heritage or reputation in producing motorbikes so instantly this made it hard for them to penetrate the motorbiking market. Generally heritage and race pedigree account for something to consumers, but most are happy to swap and try different brands if the model produced by a well reputed company has not been deemed as “up to scratch”.

BMW’s history of launching four cylinder motorcycles has not been the best for the company, e.g. the K100 in 1984. Receiving bad reviews from critics and consumers alike, however, the S1000 RR swept everyone away upon release, it is as natural and easy to ride as the well reputed Honda Fireblade, quicker than the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and better equipped than all current Japanese super-bikes, except for maybe the Italian Ducatti 1198S which is a exclusive bike in it’s own category, also to be featured on our top 10 fastest motorbikes list.
