The BMW S1000RR is a super bike manufactured by BMW Motorrad to compete in the 2009 Superbike World Championship. It was introduced in Munich on 16 April 2008, and is powered by a 1,000 cc (61 cu in) inline-4 engine.
BMW will only manufacture 1,000 production models in 2009 to satisfy World Superbike homologation requirements. It will feature traction control and is targeted to have a dry weight (motorcycle) of 190 kg (419 lb) and produce 190 bhp (142 kW). The S1000RR is unlikely to be in dealerships until early 2010.
