There's a new world's fastest BMW motorcycle, a specially prepared BMW S1000RR ridden by Andy Sills of Hunter Sills Racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah. Sills rode the bike during its debut to an incredible average speed of 224.190mph, breaking the world record during the SCTA Speedweek last month at Bonneville.

The record-breaking S1000RR was built in the U.S. by San Diego BMW Motorcycles with the help of Shane Kinderis, owner of Alpine Performance in Australia and the crew chief for the Australian Superbike team Next Gen Motosports. The modifications were done while staying within the SCTA 1000 cc requirements.

"This was our first opportunity to test the Alpine Performance tuned motor and new Catalyst fairing design for the S1000RR, and were delighted by the results," stated Gary Orr, owner of San Diego BMW Motorcycles. "We worked with both companies while road racing the S1000RR and we knew we could work together to make the S1000RR fast....really fast...."
