A partnership between BMW Motorrad USA and the California Superbike School means riders will have the opportunity to sample the power of the most potent, sophisticated and lightest sportbike ever produced, and all while under the guidance of trained professionals.
Beginning in 2010, the BMW S1000RR superbike will be available at training sessions offered by Keith Code’s California Superbike School.
The school has 48 events scheduled at racetracks around the US, beginning in March. Riders will have the option of using their own bike or renting one of the school’s 2010 BMW S1000RR motorcycles for one- or two-day training sessions.
"We would not be happy offering a motorcycle as powerful as the S1000RR without also providing access to top-shelf rider training," said Todd Andersen, BMW Motorrad USA Marketing Manager. "We want S1000RR riders to have the skills and confidence to maximize their ownership experience with this state-of-the-art superbike."
Recognized as one of the foremost motorcycle school in the world, the California Superbike School began in 1980 with the goal of becoming the most comprehensive professional school for the motorcycle enthusiast. In the two decades since, CSS has taught 100,000 street riders and 15 US Superbike Champions. Today, CSS is found on four continents, offering training for riders of all types of motorcycles - from cruisers to superbikes.
Superbike Schools offer a stepped training program comprised of four separate levels. Each is taught by trained, professional riding coaches to insure the student gains improved understanding and greater confidence.
BMW launched the S1000RRin May 2009. Weighing only 404 lb and delivering 193 hp, it can claim to be one of the most potent bikes ever produced. It holds the distinction of being the most powerful production 1000cc sport bike in the world. In addition to the class-leading power plant, it features the first four-stage Race ABS system with settings for Rain, Sport, Race and Slick conditions. The bike will arrive in US dealerships at the end of January with a MSRP of $13800.
