BMW S1000RR Superbike Build Documented In Great Detail

Have you ever wondered what separates a BMW S1000RR Superbike from the S1kRR that rolls off the BMW production line? Wonder no more, as MRT Tech, a motorcycle tuning shop in Estonia, has gone to great length to document this superbike build.

Of course, the term “Superbike” has many different meanings depending on where you are and the specific rules each racing organization defines for the class. No matter where you are, however, the process of taking a production bike and transforming it for serious racetrack duty is long and arduous. Visit MRT Tech’s Imgur album here, to see the shop take its customer’s S1000RR – with exactly one kilometer on the tach – and in the process of 95 photos, show us how it’s gone from mild to wild. In the end, according to MRT Tech, the build cost more than 50,000 euros and took one week to complete.

The S1000RR already looks mean in standard trim (left), but in race mode it’s downright mean.

As any shop worth its salt would do, the S1000RR headed to the dyno for fine tuning after the build was complete. The bike put down 194 hp to the wheel and 115 Nm (84.8 lb-ft.), with more on the table had they had more time to continue tuning. Those are impressive numbers, but here’s the crazy thing about this build: it’s rather mild in the upgrades department when compared to the likes of factory teams. The photos don’t show any internal engine modifications, and it’s sparse in its details of the electronic rider aids that are more and more prevalent in top-level racing.

Still, the bike looks like a fierce racetrack weapon – one we’d love to throw a leg over! Visit MRT Tech’s Facebook page for more info on the shop and more pictures of its other S1000RR builds.
