    The Mothership

    The new BMW S 1000 RR.

    20.10.2011

    Scarcely two years after the launch in 2009, BMW Motorrad is now presenting the revised model of this successful supersports bike, now with many optimised details. The primary objectives were even greater riding precision and agility, a punchier power buildup, and a more sensitive response. The revised model of the S 1000 RR has incorporated quite a few feedback reports from national super stock races.

    Like its predecessor, the new RR knows no compromise, providing the highest level of sporting character and riding dynamics. The convincing features of the new S 1000 RR are its improved handling with absolute riding stability, supreme engine performance with perfect everyday practicality, and a resounding dynamic performance. The highest level of active safety is safeguarded by the most advanced brake system today on the market, the BMW Motorrad Race ABS. When accelerating, the rider is supported by the Dynamic Traction Control system DTC. Both of these systems have been optimised for the perfect interaction.
    There have been no changes to the superior engine power of
    142kW (193hp) with a weight of only 204 kilograms including 90% fuel (206.5*weight with Race ABS).

    Concept with optimised riding dynamics.

    One of the primary objectives pursued for the revised S 1000 RR model was to improve ridability by boosting thrust and enhancing the linearity and harmoniousness of the power and torque curves. The reconfigured throttle improves overall response.

    The new, optimised design raises response sensitivity, tightens the twistgrip angle, and reduces the twisting force.

    Suspension with improved handling and feedback.

    The modifications to the new RR suspension have been instrumental in boosting its riding dynamics. For instance, the upside down fork and the spring strut feature a new internal structure, providing an even wider range of damping forces from comfort to performance.

    Moreover, the suspension geometry has been modified with new values for the steering head angle, offset, position of the swing arm pivot, fork projection, and spring strut length to yield even better handling, steering accuracy, and feedback for the new S 1000 RR. This has required modifications to the main frame that also included enlarging the cross sectional area of the intake air guide through the steering head for greater air flow efficiency. This package of suspension optimisations is rounded off by an adjustable mechanical steering damper.

    Instrument cluster with new functions.

    The engine speed display has been redesigned for better readability. In addition, the display can now be dimmed and provides more functions. For instance, the lap timer can now present ÔÇ£Best lap in progressÔÇØ, and if required, ÔÇ£SpeedwarningÔÇØ can inform the rider when he exceeds a particular speed.

    Refined design and new colours.

    The new S 1000 RR not only benefits from the advanced developments for the engine, suspension, and cockpit. It has also gained yet another step ahead in terms of design. The tail section now presents a considerably leaner look. There have been some discrete changes to the asymmetrical side panels, and the centre airbox cover now sports side aperture grilles. On the top part of the panels, a new, telling identifying feature takes the form of two winglets that enhance the aerodynamic qualities.

    In the most sporting colour combination of Racing red and Alpine white, the RR exudes power and speed even when it is stationary, whereas plain Bluefire lends it a decidedly extravagant look.

    Sporty dynamics is conveyed by Sapphire black metallic, and in BMW Motorrad Motorsport colours, the new S 1000 RR testifies to its direct relationship with BMW Motorrad Motorsport. The distinctive RR logo has been slightly modified.

    Additional visual accents take the form of wheels painted in glossy black and the red spring in the central strut. The matching swing arm either presents an anodised coating or is kept in black.

    Also the ergonomics has been improved in the form of new heel plates for the rider. The stabilisers on the passenger footrests have now been designed for a leaner look.

    Extended range of optional extra and special equipment.

    For individualising the new S 1000 RR, BMW Motorrad is expanding its range of optional extras and special equipment ex works with a number of attractive features. Riders with a particularly sporty bent can now equip their RR with an HP titanium exhaust system (with or without ABE) or the HP race data logger. Also the heated grips offering two levels and fitted as optional extra can take the bite out of the early morning run on the racetrack or longer rides in cold weather.

    The new features at a glance

    ÔÇó Optimised torque curve for improved ridability.
    ÔÇó Expansion from two to three performance curves (one each for Rain and*Sport modes and an additional one for Race and Slick modes); Rain mode now 120*kW (163*hp).
    ÔÇó Reconfigured throttle for enhanced response (particularly gentle and sensitive acceleration in Rain mode, and immediately direct and spontaneous response in Sport, Race, and Slick modes).
    ÔÇó Reduced twisting force and tighter twistgrip angle.
    ÔÇó Smaller secondary ratio for boosted thrust.
    ÔÇó Refined tuning between Race ABS and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC).
    ÔÇó Enlarged cross sectional area of the intake air guide through the steering head for greater air flow efficiency.
    ÔÇó Better handling, steering accuracy, and feedback.
    ÔÇó Revised spring elements for an even wider range of damping forces.
    ÔÇó Suspension geometry modified with new values for the steering head angle, offset, position of the swing arm pivot, fork projection, and spring strut length.
    ÔÇó New mechanical steering damper adjustable over ten levels.
    ÔÇó Forged and milled fork bridge in a new design and with a smaller offset.
    ÔÇó Revised design with a leaner tail section, redesigned side panels, centre airbox cover with side aperture grilles, and winglets.
    ÔÇó For new colour variants: plain Racing Red with Alpine white, Bluefire, Sapphire black metallic, BMW Motorrad Motorsport colours.
    ÔÇó Revised RR logo.
    ÔÇó New heel plates and leaner stabilisers on the passenger footrests.
    ÔÇó Redesigned LCD engine speed display for better readability and with five dimming levels.
    ÔÇó Instrument cluster with the new functions ÔÇ£Best lap in progressÔÇØ and ÔÇ£SpeedwarningÔÇØ; deactivation of ÔÇ£LampÔÇØ fault message when headlamp or number plate carrier removed.
    ÔÇó Catalytic converters relocated, so no heat shield necessary.
    ÔÇó Expansion to the optional extras and special equipment ex works.

    Gressini Racing Team rider Marco Simoncelli has died after a horrific crash at the Malaysian MotoGP in Sepang. The race was stopped on lap two when Simoncelli's bike veered across the track at turn 11 into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.

    Tech III rider Colin Edwards also fell and dislocated his shoulder - while Ducati rider Valentino Rossi was able to return to the pits. Simoncelli lay motionless on the track after the impact, while the race was immediately red-flagged. Officials were looking to restart the race before the extent of Simoncelli's injuries became clear.

    FIM-live.com: Circumstances of Simoncelli's death -press conference video
    Members of the Race Direction Paul Butler, Claude Danis, Franco Uncini and Javier Alonso were joined by Medical Director Michele Macchiagodena at a press conference to explain the circumstances of Marco Simoncelli's death at the Sepang circuit on Sunday.

    Paul Butler opened the press conference, saying: "The purpose of this press conference is to appraise you of the circumstances that resulted in the tragic death of Marco Simoncelli. You know who we all are, the Race Direction; Claude Danis who is the FIM representative, Javier Alonso the Dorna representative, Franco Uncini the riders' representative, and I'm Paul Butler the IRTA representative and Race Director. Michele Macchiagodena is our Medical Director and he will explain to you the circumstances that resulted in this death."

    Michele Macchiagodena said: "I'm very sad to be here to report about the death of Marco Simoncelli, a friend. Because of the crash he had during the race, in which he was hit by other riders, he suffered a very serious trauma to the head, to the neck and the chest. When our medical staff got to him he was unconscious. In the ambulance because there was a cardiac arrest they started CPR (cardiac pulmonary resuscitation). Immediately in the Medical Centre, with the help also of the Doctor of our staff at the Clinica Mobile and local Doctors, he was intubated and it was possible to take off some blood from the thorax. The CPR was continued for 45 minutes because we tried to help him for as long as we thought it was possible. Unfortunately it was not possible to help him and at 16:56 (local time) we had to declare he was dead."

    Paul Butler responded to a question about Marco Simoncelli's helmet coming off in the crash by saying: "I think if I may reply, that will be for another occasion. Quite clearly the consequences and circumstances surrounding the accident will be thoroughly investigated."

    Answering a question about the condition of Colin Edwards, who was involved in the incident, Michele Macchiagodena said: "He had a dislocation of the shoulder and with anaesthesia the shoulder now is in the correct position. He is fine."

    Paul Butler concluded the press conference by adding: "Our sympathies go to his family and we want to show every respect possible to Marco."

    This is very sad to hear and I am quite disturbed. I am traveling on business and have not seen the race. I was a fan of Simoncelli and his crazy hair and aggressive, albeit sometimes reckless, youthful driving. But I expected years of riding from him, and possibly a championship. It is a sad day for GP, fans, and of course the friends and family.

    GP has not been competitive, or exciting, this year. Simoncelli was part of the only real racing going on, and his passing in this way is a horrible day in racing.

    a very sad day.

    i had been out riding all day, and learned of the news on the scrolling ticker when watching the CNN news that night.

    this is a great loss for the sport.

    Re-posted after correcting major problems. (I hope)


    Members with Birthdays Today

    SBK


    Some more details of changes to the championship regulations were delivered by the FIM today in a press release. A pr?®cis of the main points follows:

    * For Immediate Application - Practice by riders and teams contracted to compete in the FIM Superbike World Championship is prohibited from the 1st of December until the 15th of January.

    * From January 1st 2012, the date of birth of all prospective Superstock riders must fall between 1st January 1986 and 29th March 1996.

    * In Superbike, Supersport and Superstock classes, as of 2012 there will be only one motorcycle per rider on race weekends. In*Supersport each rider will have only eight engines at his disposal for the entire season, while in*the Superstock class there will be a limit of three engines per rider for an entire season.

    * The balancing rules between various motorcycle concepts will be changed, with further details to be passed on at a later date. New minimum weights have been brought in for 1200cc twins in the Superbike class - 171kg - up six kilos on the starting base of 2011. Fours remain at 165kg, but there will be no tolerance on the minimum weight for any type of machine.

    * All pre-Superpole practice and qualifying session in the Superbike class will now be of 45 minutes duration, and Superpole itself will run to a new timetable.

    * In the case of a Dry Superbike Superpole, the first 16 riders will qualify for Superpole 1, the first 12 riders in Superpole 1 will go into Superpole 2, and the top eight riders from that session will go forward to Superpole 3. In the case of a Wet Superpole having been declared, The first 16 riders will take part in wet Superpole 1, which will last for 20-minutes. The fastest eight riders will go into Superpole 2, which will also last for 20 minutes.

    * There will be no flag-to-flag races in Superbike, and if the Race Director considers that a dry race has become wet he can interrupt the race to allow riders to change to wet tyres. Wet races will not be interrupted for climatic reasons. If a race has been stopped for climatic reasons, then the restart will automatically be a wet race.

    * All riders competing in the race at the time the red flag was shown will be able to restart if they are ready for a restarted race.

    * New penalties for riders can now include a drop of position, plus a drop of any number of grid positions at the rider's next race, as well as other existing penalties.

    Final rules will be published soon.

    Note: These are provisional. Vitally Petrov carries a 5 position grid penalty for India for crashing into Schumacher in Korea. Perez and Hamilton have been given 3 position grid penalties for ignoring caution flags during Friday practice sessions. Finally, HRT made a late replacement of a gearbox; therefore, Ricciardo will take a five position penalty (if that is possible). During Qualifying Karthikeyan received a five position penalty for blocking Schumacher.

    Qualifying Press Conference Transcript
    DRIVERS 1 - Sebastian VETTEL (Red Bull)
    2 - Lewis HAMILTON (McLaren)
    3 - Mark WEBBER (Red Bull)

    Qualifying Notes:
    A dirty track and pending penalties to offset threw much of what Steve Matchet previously laid out for tyre management Chalk Talk. Most of the field took the track on hard tyres to start Q1. Blowing dust made the track slick. Combining with the slick track some teams opted for softs in Q1 to guarantee advancing to Q2. Petrov made the most of this taking Q1 honors. Race tyre management may have come into play in Q2 where he finished in P11 failing to advance to Q3.

    Partway through Q1 Timo Glock exited his Virgin car due to gearbox problems. This creates a issue for the race stewards. Glock turned a time of 1:34.046 in Q1. The 107% rule required time set by Petrov's Q1 time was 1:32.222. [Glock will race - Stewards Report ]

    Tyre management dictated how Q3 played out. Vettel, Webber, Massa, Alonso and Hamilton were the only drivers out for much of the final session. In the closing minutes Button and Rosberg joined in. Despite all the efforts to get people out and competing in Q3 Sutil, Buemi and Alguersuari did not turn a wheel in the session and will retain tyre choice for the start of the race.

    Vettel takes the inaugural Indian GP pole. Hamilton finished in P2 but will start in P7 due to his penalty. The result is another Red Bull front row. Behind them will be the Ferrari of Alonso and Button in the other McLaren. Massa and Rosberg will make up row three. Hamilton rejoins the grid in P7 with Sutil next to him. Buemi and Alguersuari round out the top 10.
