    seen this one?
    Yep! Amazing!

    The 2009 WSBK team had the best scheme.

    'Elbows' owned WSBK on that bike. (That's me at Miller in 2010)

    The success that Spies on the '09 R1 was much more about his talent than it was about the R1 that's for sure. Damn thing is a turd in all but full blown SB spec - in SS trim or less it was heavy, flexy, and WAY underpowered.

    My buddy who raced with me had an '09 - stock engine just a flash, tune, full Yosh system, and on pump gas it made a whopping 155hp (down 10 on my '05 GIK), and weighed 37lbs more.

    Sounded heavenly though that's for damn sure!

    Cool picture Red! Spies was incredible on that bike fighting the Ducs! I was pissed when he left the racing scene. I was a huge fan!! Intense racing against MAD Mladin in the golden days of AMA racing.

    New BMW in action in Estoril.









    BMW’s screaming 999cc inline four never lacked top end power, but the new slimmer, lighter-cranked motor revs harder and faster, head butting its redline with the savage alacrity of a pukka superbike engine.
    The way it dispenses with straights, with a strange kind of violent calm, is a sign that few of its rivals, if any, will get close on the drag out of a corner. A lighter crank, hollowed-out intake valves and lary high rev inlet valve timing, helps it to a claimed 204bhp – stick a full race pipe on a you’re looking at over 215bhp.
    With all its power stuffed at the top of the revs, the previous RR was a peaky devil, like a big supersport 600, but not any more. BMW’s new variable valve timing system (Shift Cam) laces the power curve with the kind of mid-range grunt and broad spread of power that would make a V4 proud, especially between 4300rpm and 8000rpm.
    Beneath the Shift Cam’s 9000rpm go-mental-threshold, BMW’s monster motor has a newfound level of smoothness and tractability, which can only be good news for S1000RR on the road.

    sounds impressive! variable valve timing strikes again!

    i'm guessing its similar "in function" to the R1250GS, here's a cool vid

    Sounds the same as the latest Gen of GSX-R as well. It has that "metallic" sound to it! They claim 215HP with the full Akra on with the new BMW.

    GSX-R is variable valve timing yes, but not a 'shift' over design as the beemers.

    i actually really dig the Gixxer simplicity of function... i would assume less maintenance required.

    it only affects intake valves,

    Like the Suzuki system better. More compact, less moving parts, more clever and small for sure.. Wonder if the Beemer got an advantage in the real world with their shiftcam system?? The funny thing is at WOT.. both bikes sound the same.. I still think the "tank area" is still big on the new BMW.
