The UK's most desirable motorbike - The BMW S 1000 RR

The RR led to a revolution in the sport superbikes category right from the outset. Thereafter the bike continued to be developed, its tried and tested concept being honed even further and the latest technology added. One constant factor remained throughout however - the RR's impressive power curve and, in terms of performance, it is still a trailblazer today. Now the S 1000 RR comes with DTC Dynamic Traction Control as standard for even greater driving dynamics and road safety. As a result the S 1000 RR remains a thoroughbred among sport bikes – whether on the road or on the racing circuit. And its innovative technology allows you to experience its performance with greater intensity and immediacy than ever. 

Now the BMW S 1000 RR has been named as one of the UK’s most desirable motorbikes - that’s according to new research from Bikesure. Using Google search data to get inside the minds of the UK’s bikers, Bikesure examined whether the motorbikes we often see in lists of the best, fastest and most stylish rides are actually as desirable as they seem.

Bikesure’s final list reveals the 11 most searched-for and in-demand motorcycles in the UK, including the BMW S 1000 RR. The list is accompanied by commentary from four-times World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty, who gives his view on whether each bike deserves its place. For the BMW S 1000 RR, he says:

“If there’s a row of bikes – Yamaha, Honda, Ducati – people like to pick the BMW. It’s an incredible road bike: it really looks the part, there’s a lot of stuff that works on it – the electronics and so on; it’s the ultimate package. And it’s a very very fast bike – they’ve been great at the TT.”
