Put that way, it almost sounds as if naked versions of superbikes are an afterthought but modern nakeds are much more than [...]
The S1000RR is the most successful bike for BMW and needless to say the fastest and quickest motorcycle in the world. When it was launched it simply blew away the competition in one shot. BMW Motorrad is now keen on repeating the successful easy to ride chassis and engine by modifying it for other roles. [...]

An S1000-Based Adventure Superbike! Written by: Aaron Frank BMW already rules the adventure-touring category with its iconic R1200GS, but for the ever-growing contingent of ADV buyers who never venture beyond paved roads, the ultra-rugged, boxer-powered GS gives up some ground to more street-biased, superbike-influenced competition like Ducati’s Multistrada and Aprilia’s all-new Caponord. Not for much [...]
