2012 BMW S1000RR Motorcycle Review
It was just two years ago that the automobile manufacturer introduced a bike which immediately became the benchmark in ultra-competitive motorcycle class.

However, engineers chose to work more on it, and they are ready with the first technical update of BMW S1000RR as the all-new improved 2012 BMW S1000RR.
The enhancements and updates have been made to make it a more effective and deadlier racetrack weapon. Only a professional could tame the old beast, but now with introduction of new, improved, and deadlier 2012 BMW S1000RR, just imagine the skills and experience you need to drive it.
2012 BMW S1000RR Motorcycle Features
Engine and Electronics
Although this German-built machine was flawless, but engineers jotted out a few points by gathering information and testing the vehicle to its limit. It was previously known to have a hypersensitive throttle in its “Race” and “Slick” power modes, which made it difficult for racers to control it while accelerating from hard off corners. This problem has been addressed to pretty seriously, and finally engineered out.
The 2012 BMW S1000RR is the first bike to introduce the feature of optional heated grips. All the engine power modes – Rain, Race, Sport, and Slick – have been modified to add torque when moving at low-to-medium engine speeds. The “Rain” mode now churns out additional 8 peak horsepower. BMW engineers have also worked to improve the vehicle stability at different speeds and RPMs.
The improved instrument panel on the 2012 BMW S1000RR has additional electronic functions with new font for improved readability and “Speed Warning” lights and “Best Lap in Progress”. The contrast and brightness of this instrument panel, too, can be adjusted now. Steering response has been tweaked, but feels almost the same. The DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) system has also been reprogrammed to make it a smoother and better-controlled vehicle. Lots of accessories, too, have been added to analyze the dynamics of the machine on the racetrack.
The 2012 BMW S1000RR has been improved both inside out. In addition to electronics and engine, chassis has also received quite a lot attention. The changes have largely been made keeping it in mind as a racetrack machine. The 2012 BMW S1000RR, now, is a more stable racing bike. The rear part has received a few changes, and is a little slimmer now. Side panels have been reshaped for improved aerodynamics. The new plastic grilles and “RR” logo give it a “2012” look.
The 2012 BMW S1000RR is available in three new colors – Bluefire, Racing Red with Alpine White, and Sapphire Black Metallic. Predecessor’s red, white, blue Motorsports colors remain in line.
The 2012 S1000RR is more comfortable, balanced, and stable sportbike. Testing in all riding modes was noticeably improved and accurately responsive. Twist grip’s twitchy feeling has been eliminated out completely.
The 2012 BMW S1000RR is going to become the benchmark of year 2012, too.
