    Standard/naked S1000RR to come?

    I've been thinking about a building a variation of the Wunderlich Pirahana for some time. Starting with a standard would make my job much easier. I'm very old (63) and I can't comfortably sit on a sport bike anymore. I'd like to build a bike that's easy on my knees but has still has balls. Thanks

    Where did you find it out? I've been reading about naked versions being tested, but no definite plans or press releases.

    It's here, the S1000R. Can't wait to test ride it.

    I posted this link to the press release a few days ago.

    Nobody seemed interested. There was more forum traffic about the 500cc Harley.

    I agree, no interest here at all. The S1000RR guys probably think the MOA is for old dudes. Come to think of it I've never seen a S1000 at a BMW rally.

    I was set to get the new Ducati Monster 1200S (water cooled 1198 motor, 145 HP) but with the new S1000R I might have to rethink my plan. We have a great Ducati dealer in the area, I love going there. I never warmed up to the local BMW dealer but I'll see what I can do.
