BMW S1000RR 191hp Dyno Run on Video

Ever since early reports on the 2010 BMW S1000RR suggested that the German superbike was making a claimed 190hp at the crank, the Bavarian bike sounded like a true contender against the Japanese dominated  market. Then when we heard that BMW may have been sandbagging those figures, and bikes were popping up wtih 190hp at the crank, it definitely piqued our interest.

With disbelief we weren’t sure what to make of the new BMW, and it seem we’re in the same boat as the folks over at, as they’ve gotten their hands on a S1000RR and put it on a DynoJet to see for themselves what the bike could do. The result? 191hp. Check the video after the jump

With so many variables going into dyno runs (this one looks to have a ram air setup), it’s still hard to tell how legit this run really is, but if anyone in Northern California has a BMW S1000RR that’d they’d be willing to let A&R get its hands, we’d love to try it out against the bikes in our garage for references.

    Chip Spalding(sp?) over at KWS Racing in Charleston,SC has done a bunch of dyno runs as of late w/ the S1000RR,R1,GSXR1000 and some others. Dude knows his dyno pretty well. You can find him on the WERA forum where he has posted the charts or contact him directy at the shop.

  • Slight grammar/word choice critique: something that catches one’s interest would “pique” it, not “peak” it.

    haha i was hoping somebody else might comment on that before me.

    Otherwise I could believe 191, but only if I have legit conditions in hand (% humidity, db & wb temp, & barometer reading)

  • It will be a great day when we have a U.S. manufactured bike that’s able to compete with the Big 4 in the sport-bike/super-sport categories.

    This BMW seems to have the goods and I wouldn’t mind throwing my leg over one. If anybody in North Florida wants to honor my request hit me up.

    And that’s with the stock exhaust. What do you think it will do with the Akro exhaust?
    Oh, for you grammar teachers out there, even the New York Times now starts their stenences with And. Just increase I “piqued” the interest of any Strunk & White apostles out there.

    @Jenny Gun: I was under the impression that was a clever pun, as in “peak” hp. I’m just saying.

    if you watched the video, you’d see it’s at the rubber.

    Where you guys @ in NorCal? I am in SoCal and go a place in Paso. I have the S1000RR and you can believe the hype. It’s sick fast.
