Older Guy I just talked to Irv Seaver BMW - they have deposits on 14 bikes and most coming in are the M package with the carbon wheels....he said around $23,000. Bike comes in Red for other models and tri color for the M model. No black until next year. 17 bikes total coming in by August. He said his 2015 is 200 RWHP and these are stronger.

Older Guy You may be correct but up until now, it's been the R-1 and Ducati.....

Thanks for sharing that. My conclusion is that the editor has confused bhp for wheel power, since BMW doesn't specify. Either that or BMW has somehow managed to pull 30-40 horsepower over it's rivals. I am incredulous at that. And it contradicts other sources I have read, e.g. https://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-.../s1000rr/2019/ , https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocia...s1000rr-review

So yeah, I'm sure it's a great bike but BMW are engineers not miracle workers.

wyrda I mean, even the graph in the vid says bhp.

My money is on the '19 ninja, they don't killed it the BMW killer for nothing.

wyrda Seems like fake news. It wouldn't be the first time dynos have gotten overly optimistic figures for new bikes. But we'll see when the dust has settled.
