BMW announces pricing for updated 2012 model S 1000 RR

BMW Motorrad will introduce the new 2012 BMW S 1000 RR at $22,290, no increase on the previous model. Included as standard are Race ABS, Dynamic Traction Control and Quick Shift.

The second generation 2012 BMW S 1000 RR has been refined for even further dynamic performance and rideability.

Changes to suspension, steering head angle and swing arm pivot and other subtle improvements increase steering accuracy and rider feedback. The torque curve has been optimised for improved rideability and new throttle action for even greater input and control.

A new compact tail section, subtle changes to the asymmetric side panels and aerodynamic winglets give the new RR an even more aggressive and sportier appearance.

In a first in the Sportsbike sector, the BMW S 1000 RR can be fitted with optional heated grips ($325), making the early morning winter blast a lot more fun.

General manager BMW Motorrad Australia and New Zealand, Tony Sesto, is looking forward to the arrival of the exciting 2012 BMW S 1000 RR.

“When released the BMW S 1000 RR set new standards for dynamic performance and ridabilty. The 2012 model raises the bar even further. BMW Motorrad engineers have used feedback from both race teams and customers to improve what already is a very highly acclaimed sportsbike” said Tony.

Delivery will commence in February.
