BMW motorbikes are known for their performance and precision as a sport bike and here we showcase our favourite BMW motorbike to date, the BMW S1000RR. The bike was initially made by BMW Motorrad to compete in the 2009 Superbike World Championship. We love this bike because of it’s cool looks and it’s unbelievable acceleration as you can witness in the videos below. You just need to look at the awards that the S1000RR bike has won to see that this is a special bike including motorcycle of the year.

0 to 100km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds!
It’s fast acceleration thanks to its 14,000-rpm redlined 193 bhp engine coupled with the vast array of electronic trickery including top-notch traction control, sharp handling, comfortable ergonomics and excellent build quality make the S1000RR one of our favourites.
In March 2010, BMW released a video on YouTube titled “The oldest trick in the world”which highlighted the S1000RR’s acceleration by pulling a tablecloth off a long 20-seat dining table without disturbing the place settings and table decorations. Its popularity turned the ad viral, with 1.4 million views in the first ten days, and more than 3.7 million views as of October 2010. Here is that video:
The S1000RR is in our opinion the finest machine BMW have produced to date. We remember when the S1000RR first came out in 2008/09. The first 1,000 bikes that were produced were snapped up very quickly. This prompted BMW to go into full-scale commercial production in 2010.
