Not any horsepower increase. Looks like a graphics package and extra $$ over an otherwise 'ordinary' S1000RR.

Probably about $10k more than a ordinary S1000RR because it is special and all.

Right...

Except for:

- An amazing 30 lbs. lighter

- It has redesigned electronics, new "slick" mode derived directly from the SuperStock racebike

- New fueling and revised exhaust valves give even more midrange than the revised 2012 S1K

- Launch control

- Improved suspension front and rear

- Shorter wheelbase, revised geometry, narrower rake

- Brembo monoblocs, revised race ABS

- It is the first ever motorcycle using Dynamic Damping Control, BMW's new active suspension that adjusts itself automatically to react to track conditions

- Forged aluminum wheels and sprocket mount save over 5lbs of unsprung mass

- New titanium headers and routing save over 10 lbs.

Some "graphics package," eh?

One thing for sure: it will be in Panigale S territory, price-wise.

I stand corrected. Must have overlooked the weight reduction. That is significant. Very significant. Fueling and boost in midrange is always a welcome improvement.

I think I was only looking at it through the filter of what the HP2e and HP2 MM were-a completely different frame for the beginning of what began that line.

Hey, where's the Tele-Lever front end?

I thought BMW said Tele-Lever was the "be all, end all" of motorcycle front ends?

Missing nothing but carbon bodywork (like on HP2 Sport).

Active suspension is interesting, but is it biased more to the road than track?
