This page is a specification comparison between the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and the BMW S1000RR. The S1000RR is BMW’s first genuine supersports bike so it will be of historical note. Everything about the S1000RR has been designed to beat the existing Japanese domination of 1000cc super sports class and by the looks of things they have. The only thing that BMW needs to do now is to prove it on the race track.

Customers are smart these days and simply better specifications does not mean that it will be a better bike, best seller or indeed have the street cred. This will take time and BMW will no doubt hang in there and put more money in to make it a success!

Initially I assumed it would be designed using BMW’s weird but wonderful styling theme.  Unfortunately when I saw it in real life I don’t want one now, purely because it just looks very plain especially compared to other BMWs. A re-design would help it LOTS. The current 2010 range of BMW motorcycles look odd but there is something in those other designs that also make them cool eg. the GS and the naked R1300s (which I’d bee happy to own).
