Has anyone here seen this article? This is going to be an unbelievable piece of equipment!

Brocks Performance

Davidson has been hired by BMW Motorrad to develop their new drag race inspired sportbike, the S 1600 DR. “BMW was so impressed with how the drag racing community has embraced the S 1000 RR, they have decided to build a bike specifically for the market,” he said.

The machine will have a compact, yet expandable, 1600 cc four cylinder engine and will reportedly produce 225 horsepower at the rear wheel off the showroom floor. Drag-specific features include self-lowering suspension, self-pressurizing tires on the fly and an elaborate drive chain tensioner with an exotic swingarm that will provide a rider-adjustable wheelbase in motion. In addition, a new riding mode, “strip”, will enable drag-specific clutch engagement featuring traction and wheelie control.

Rumors that the bike will be available with an optional factory-installed nitrous system have been confirmed by Davidson. “BMW’s anti-knock technology, combined with their sophisticated engine and fuel management systems will now allow the addition of 50 to 150 additional horsepower without fear of engine damage… and we thought the S1000RR was ground breaking.”

Meh - running full synthetic oil, Yoshi pipes, aftermarket turn signals, bar-end mirrors, Stebel horn, frame sliders, UL bars, Chinese levers and a host of other cosmetic 'permormance' modifications to my 9er I'd cream it .......

And that's without a tail tidy or braided lines .......
