Larry Pegram will ride the BMW S100RR in the 2011 AMA American Superbike Championship.

Pegram and the Foremost Insurance Pegram Racing team will switch to the BMW S1000RR after ending their long association with Ducati.

“We have tested three times aboard a slightly modified, but mostly stock, BMW S1000RR and I am really pleased with the bike’s performance,” says Pegram. “I comfortably did laps that were already very competitive. Some minor modifications will make the RR race ready and a true contender to win AMA Pro SuperBike races.”

Pegram finished fourth in the 2010 AMA American Superbike Championship, winning one race and making six appearances on the podium.
