BMW S 1000 RR with studs – Click above to watch the video after the break

We are amidst one of the most persistent bouts of winter weather many parts of the world have ever seen. Chalk it up to Punxsutawney Phil predicting six more weeks of this dreaded season, or perhaps just a good old fashion case of cabin fever, but either way, the crew at Max BMW Motorsport couldn't wait another second to give the 2010 BMW S 1000 RR a good Twist of the Wrist. What? You gonna let a few feet of ice stop you?

Take your regular old 193-horsepower Beemer, fit a set of Michelin Pilots with cleats and you have the makings of a good snow cone business. After watching the video, we think the new BMW S 1000 RR looks ready for battle – the exhaust note alone will confirm that. Plus, you can choose from four unique color selections, as well as BMW's typical A' la carte menu of safety and performance options.

Not convinced? The claimed best-in-class power-to-weight ratio may just quicken your pulse. If you find yourself sitting comfortably behind closed doors warming your toes by the fire while you await that first ride of spring, don't fret! Looks like Germany may have actually come up with a cure for the winter blues. Hit the jump to watch the video.

      That would handy for ice-fishing. No drill needed, just brake torque your hole with the rear tire.

      Disappointing they didn't do any turns. That would have been interesting. You really have to open the throttle in turns when ice racing a motorcycle. I know some people up here (AK) who do it. I haven't gathered the guts to try it yet myself hah. Supposedly though once you are in the turn and open the throttle the amount of traction is pretty astounding.

        I used to watch those guys race on Big Lake. I hate circle racing but if you're gonna do it that's probably the most excitement you're going to get. It's like that moto dirt track racing they do in Britain only with more grip.

        As for this video, no turns is no good. Come on people! Have some balls.

      I was expecting a knee down!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nuts....
        • 4 Years Ago
        yeah i was hoping he would atleast turn it.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Its got potential, but without seeing a wheelie, stoppie or dragging knee in a corner, its not even approaching epic-hoonage.

      Those need to go on a GS and the GS needs to go up the Ice Road with the Truckers. Flat open icy lake - wimpy. Icy river cracking under your 500lb enduro - burly.

      That is crazy. Cool video, cool bike.

      I'm always surprised at the places I hear KMFDM.
      Awesome video, btw.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah I found that amusing as well.

        A few times I caught KMFDM's work in a lot of video games in the early to mid 2000's, and when I met Sascha on the WWIII tour he had mentioned he was getting big into game soundtracks. In addition to various KMFDM and MDFMK songs being put into games here and there, he actually did the original scores to a game or two.

        Ah man, that's pretty cool. I haven't seen them live since about 03-04, and unfortunately the crowd was awefull; buncha mopey, swaying goth tweens from the burbs that booed the few people who chanted "KMFDM sucks".

        I woulda corrected them, but I couldn't seem to peel my jaw off the floor.

      I find it odd to be doing anything that shows off losing traction when the whole point of the studded tires would be to enhance the lousy grip on ice. Why spend the time and money on the studs in the first place?

      I want this bike more than any other

        Freeze-out. :D
        • 4 Years Ago
        No kidding... it's not like you need bolts in the tires to do burnouts on ice... Iceouts?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow! We just posted this to our fanpage because we are all about studded traction. http://www.facebook.com/32northStabilicers?ref=ts Of course spikes would be a bit excessive - we use screws on our traction gear.

      Good stuff!
