5 Fast Alternatives To The Yamaha R1

The BMW S 1000 RR is slightly more powerful than the R1, and its top speed barely edges out the Yamaha. Providing 205 ponies, the S 1000 RR is one of the most powerful sport bikes available this side of a racetrack. Push it to the limit, and you’ll be doing 188 mph down whatever straightaway you’ve found that can accommodate such a speed.

Like the R1, the S 1000 RR is available in two basic configurations. The base model is priced at $18,295 (plus $695 destination fee) but the optional M Package changes the price significantly — adding special M Performance livery, a lightweight battery, carbon wheels, special suspension, and a sport seat. All this extra equipment costs $4,995, bringing the S 1000 RR’s price to $23,985 (plus destination). That’s without the $2,995 Carbon fairings package, the $1,700 titanium exhaust, or the $2,690 Premium package which adds heated grips, cruise control, an exhaust silencer, and an endurance chain. The S 1000 RR is certainly fast, but if you want a bit of added comfort on your track-munching German sport bike, it’ll cost you.
