BMW has finally gotten around to setting the MSRP on its highly anticipated S1000RR sportbike. Priced in-line to compete with the major Japanese manufacturers, the S1000RR is going for a measly $13,800.

For that price you’ll receive a bike with 193hp at the crank, a dry weight of 404lbs, and a headlight only a mother could love. For an additional $1,000, you can get the S1000RR with ABS brakes,  and only sacrifice an additional 5.5lbs of that curb weight.

Other options include an ABS/Dynamic Traction Control combo at $1,480, a quick shifter for $450, obligatory BMW alarm option at $395, and if you want a color that you can live with, then the red, white, and blue, BMW Racing color scheme will set you back an additional $750. Expect to see the bike in your local dealer around December of this year.

We had originally predicted the the S1000RR to come in around $14,500, we were off by $700, but the new BMW does fit in nicely as we predicted with the gap between the Japanese and Italian manufacturers, as shown below:
