- BMW S1000RR bike becomes world's fastest BMW motorcycle
- Reaches average speed of 224.190mph
- Engine tuned to make 220hp
- Record achieved at the SCTA Speedweek at the Bonneville Salt Flats
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
"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...."
