Smoking The Competition

October 30, 2009 by


Masoud is having an exciting time in Spain, this is his second day at the launch of the S1000RR, and this is what he has to say:

“This is pretty intense. I never in my wildest dreams expected this from the Bavarian giants. We went through some intensive training today about the S1000RR (or as they like to call it here…the RrrrRrrr). We got a chance to make a direct comparison to the competition (see pics). On paper, the RR blows them all out of the water!! It has the best Power to Weight ratio of any production bike world wide, along with lots of juicy bits and peices that the competitors can only dream about (standard Quick Shifter)… I’m only going to list a few, as I will be test riding it tomorrow morning.






I’m pretty anxious and excited. I always thought I was a decent rider, but I was sitting with superbike champs from different countries (Hungary, Poland, Sweden…and many more). Compared to them, I’m a novice!! But I do plan on letting it all hang out!!! I’m geared up and ready.

The streets of Kuwait have never witnessed such a beast…

Now the color schemes…

-All Black (smoking hot!)
-Black and silver (very smooth)
-BMW Racing, White/Blue/Red (WSBK colors)
-Lime Green (everyone seems to like this color except for me)

Ladies and gents…in the words of Maximus the gladiator: ” ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?!?!”
