BMW Motorrad Area and Community Manager Mark Jamroz says a lot of excitement is building in anticipation of the 'coming out' party for BMW's new super sport bike, the S1000RR. The bike should be in U.S. showrooms by December and available for customers just in time for holiday gift giving. It will be labeled a '2010' model.

The base price is $13,800 but there are several options that you may find interesting.

Race ABS - $1,000
Race ABS and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) Combined: $1,480
Gear Shift Assistant: $450
Anti Theft Alarm: $395
Motorsports Paint Scheme: $750

The Race ABS System has settings for Rain, Sport, Race and Slick conditions and adds only 5.5 lbs total weight to the bike. The S 1000 RR also introduces a new multi-stage Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) which allows smooth acceleration on wet roads, or puts down full-on power on the track and settings in between depending on the road and riding conditions BMW is understandably excited about their new superbike, which at 404 lbs, and 193 hp is being called by BMW as "the most potent, sophisticated and lightest sport bike ever unleashed on the planet and the most powerful production 1000cc sport bike in the world. " Impressive rhetoric and come early 2010, we will see what new owners have to say.
