BMW Motorrad present the BMW S 1000 RR Custom Project prepared by Praem. This hypersportive was fully customized by Sylvain Florent Berneron and in homage to the heyday of the endurance races of the 80 The perfect link between the world of racing and customization.
While maintaining all the dynamic qualities and leading performance of the S 1000 RR, Praem book in a decidedly vintage performance but also very racing. The exterior is completely revised in this sense: asymmetrical fork head in the mind of machines that were prepared for 8h of Suzuka, original aluminum tank lengthened and of course a typical casing of that time with the battery directly accessible. Many changes have been made, in a nod to the world of competition: fill valve and quick couplings Staubli, carbon wheels Rotobox equipped with carbon ceramic discs, radiator-type endurance, slick tires or adjustable remote controls of the BMW Motorrad HP range. The titanium exhaust system emits a particularly angry with his silent Werks USA. Of course, the essence of the project with a strong scent of competition, the S 1000 RR retains its technology. Its performance is even up through the exhaust system and a specific mapping but also to the overall relief on the chassis: carbon wheels, aluminum subframe and titanium screws. Indeed, the weight of the S 1000 RR already very original content, is thus further reduced to only 184 kg fully fueled a gain of about 20kg on the scales to Praem this release.
Produced in collaboration with Derestricted, the design of the painting is also a modern reinterpretation, with a satin finish, aesthetic codes of competition vehicles from 70/80. It is also a nod to the BMW Art Car by Alexander Calder at the chosen colors.
Sylvain Berneron, Praem: “This new project Praem makes me work again on a BMW and I am very proud. In this kind of approach, it is really important to work freely creatively. Once the outline of the motorcycle defined, Florent and I were very free to explore a new direction with the racing 80s while using an ultra modern base.
The philosophy is to use Praem legendary motorcycles bases. The BMW S 1000 RR in part in my opinion. It is extraordinary that BMW has managed to do with a powerful engine but perfectly tamed by electronics and some hyper sharpened cycle.
We tried to keep the maximum board technology: DTC traction control, suspension driven DDC, Race ABS, launch control … while taking the S 1000 RR in another aesthetic universe …. “
