The 2019 BMW S1000RR superbike is the fourth generation of a machine that first arrived on the scene in 2010. At a time when its rivals could barely muster a rear-wheel 160bhp, the German wonder machine made 190bhp, had MotoGP-inspired electronics and race-ready handling - impressive for a company best known for sensible tourers and adventure bikes.

It's BMW's first M-branded motorcycle, and as such, it's chock full of the best bits and pieces the German manufacturer could scrounge up in an effort to meet its maximum two-wheeled on-track performance capabilities. It all adds up to a 212-horsepower package that weighs just 423 pounds. The M 1000 RR's 999cc four-cylinder engine is fitted with Mahle two-ring pistons and titanium connecting rods from Pankl. All the air-pumping bits have been redesigned, the compression ratio bumped to 13.5:1 and the exhaust system is crafted from titanium. The engine's redline sits at 15,100 rpm, peak power...
