Nine literbikes, 15 riders, one winner. BMW's new S1000RR changed the game.

In the final analysis, what we're left with is a brand-new BMW that arrived on scene and did exactly what most people thought would be impossible—blew all the established players completely out of the water, Bismarck style, on its maiden voyage. Whatever tenths the Beemer gave up to a few of the other contestants in the corners (not many), it more than got back on Moto Aragón's long back straight, where it blitzed the timing lights 7 mph faster than the next speediest bike; 181 mph is not hanging around.

What the BMW S1000RR just pulled off here is even more of an incredible feat when you consider the bike it beat—by a wide margin if you look at just lap times—did the same thing to the Open-class competition just one short year ago: the Cycle World 2009 Ten Best Superbike winner Aprilia RSV4 Factory. BMW took aim at a moving target and blasted it right between the eyes.
