The catch is that the bike is not meant for short distances and is not for casual street riding either. Here are a few improved features of the new BMW S1000RR.

• The bike has an increased output to 199 hp art 13,500 rpm with a torque of up to 83lb-ft at 10,500 rpm.
• The improved bike has a better ride-ability due to the torque from 5,000 rpm upwards as well as a more linear curve.
• Newly designed cylinder head with a new duct design and lighter intake valves.
• Reduced weight by 8.8 lbs to 449.7 lbs with a full tank of fuel.
• Better and lighter frame structure with a good blend of rigidity and flexibility for more traction and clear feedback.
• Spring elements that are fully adjustable with optimized negative spring travel for more banking clearance.
• New electrical system with a more powerful sensor box and a light weight battery.
