To help celebrate Ayrton Badovini’s complete domination of the 2010 FIM Superstock 1000 Championship (the Italian won nine out of the ten races, finishing second only in the tenth race), BMW Italia is releasing a limited edition BMW S1000RR street version of the winning superstock bike.
With only 50 units being made, and available only in Italy, lucky owners will get the already potent S1000RR, along with a bevy of aftermarket goodies like a Akrapovic “Racing Exhaust” (pictures show a slip-on though), Gilles Tooling rearsets and levers, carbon fiber panels, LED turn signals, and of course BMW Italia’s racing colors.
Each BMW S1000RR Superstock Limited Edition will be numbered, and comes by default in a one-up configuration. Owners with friends shouldn’t fret though, as a passenger kit with a seat and foot pegs is included in the bundle. Basically a distributor special, each bike will be made in Berlin, with the Limited Edition touches being down at the BMW Italia Racing facility.
At €27,000 a pop, the BMW S1000RR Superstock Limited Edition doesn’t come cheap (we really hope the press release is leaving out the part where the S1000RR is tuned to race spec before purchase), and the model might not seem like a lot of bang for the buck (that’s a nearly €11,000 price premium over the base S1000RR in Italy).
Still, if you’re a big fan of #86, you’ll likely be intrigued by this bike…and there’s probably exactly 50 people willing to pay that much for this motorcycle in Italy. Availability starts in March 2011.
