Huh?? BMW said their target was 10% of the average 85,000 super sport bikes sold per year. At $14k, they can easily take that percentage, even if the bike doesn't win big. You're talking about a couple grand difference with a UJM...and having BMW on the label means a lot to a lot of people.

I think they'll sell every single one they make, and at list price, too.

Default Why does Blackfoot Motors have $26000.00?

If you go to Blackfoot Motorsports in Calgary, Alberta, they list the BMW S1000RR at $26000.00!!! I was wondering why I had heard this affordable pricing crap when I saw that price. Is the price a FOR SURE thing at $16000.00? I hope so.

BMW Motorrad Canada's official press release says, immediately following the MSRP of $16,800, "No, this is not a typo".

So yes, even they expected people to wonder if that was right.
