The BMW S1000RR won our Bike of Year and Sportbike of the Year awards in 2010, and Sportbike Honorable Mention award in 2011. A revised S1000RR again won Sportbike of the year in 2012, and in 2013 the HP4 version of the RR, took Best Sportbike. Twenty fourteen is, in fact, the first year since the RR’s launch that it has not gone home with a MOBO award.

That might change for 2015 as the S1000RR has received the most significant upgrades since its introduction six years ago. From a revised engine and exhaust system to a new frame and bodywork, the RR stands to maintain its dominance in the literbike field.
We’ll soon be track testing the 2015 S1000RR at the Circuit Monteblanco in southern Spain. Stay tuned to Motorcycle.com for a full report including words, photos and video.
