    Akra does have an arrangement with BMW, but I already bought all of the add-on parts. I went with the Devil Exhaust which is coming from Europe and will be here in a couple of weeks. The BMW motorcycle shop will do the install and do an ECU upgrade at the same time. Much different than working with my M3 where the local BMW dealer refused to install my Akra Evo System.

    7-12 HP. No huge gain, but you don't need it. > or = 200 Hp is more than enough on a bike that will weigh less than 425 lbs. after exhaust mod. Again, my only goal is appearance and sound!

    Just an update. I have another 150 miles to go for break-in and then I get the rev limiter extended to full capacity. Right now I am bouncing off of the rev limiter at ~8,000 RPM and I have >14K RPM available after break-in. It will be freaking crazing to have the full capacity of the bike! Should happen in the next three weeks if weather holds out.

    That pretty cool that it holds the limit down for break in.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    It's crazy the power they can pull out of a 1 liter motor that passes emissions, runs on pump gas, lasts a relatively long time before rebuild and is relatively cheap. $15,000 for that kind of performance and an experience unlike anything else. And that's only counting new bikes!

    I <3 motorcycles.

    14k RPM is insane!

    Why am I feeling like I need a BMW bike now?

    The more I think about this the more impressive the BMW bike seems. I'm not sure why it seems everyone seems to talk more about the Japanese sport bikes.

    There are more of them, and they have conquered the performance bike scene for a LONG time.

    I guarantee the new bikes from Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Honda will be using this BMW as a target to beat.

    Yes. I was pretty freaked out when I hit the limiter. It was like hitting a wall after 7K RPM. Throws you forward.

    I can only imagine what the power delivery will be like for the next 6K. Will probably rip my arms off!

    Why am I feeling like I need a BMW bike now?
    Because the bike is a great alternative for travel when you need a break from the car!

    BMW is the benchmark right now. I would say that as naive as I was to sport bikes, this bike is completely natural. The bike has so many built in safety features that make the bike effortless.

    So this bike is the best in its class?

    i dont want to pollute the thread with my rice rocket....lol we need to have a "post your bike" thread!

    congrats on the bike and getting use to it. they are great fun, with even greater responsibility. I was nervous about getting a liter bike as my first bike as well.
    BMW has def. raised the bar for other bikes to reach. that looks like a really well made, safe, fun machine you have there!

    one rolling shot of mine from a couple weeks ago.

    i bought it about a year and a half ago, i think it was 6500 and some change IIRC.

    so far it has a K&N drop in filter, GYTR carbon fiber slip on exhaust,velocity stacks, 520 chain conversion, Power commander III, gilles fully adjustable rearsets, upgraded braided stainless brake lines, pazzo adjustable levers, and a bunch of other cosmetic crap....lol

    Awesome, hell of a deal! Have you done any 1/4 mile passes? You should be good for at least low 10s!

    BMW3R: ever ridden a 2-stroke, and if so, how does this huge, high-strung 4-stroke compare?

    I quit biking upon the demise of the 2-stroke streetbike, but some of these new offerings are pretty impressive. I will say i rode a CBR1000r a few years back and was thoroughly nonplussed, but alot's changed even since then i know.. like having to select "leave me alone" mode manually instead of just *ridin'* the darn thing, hehe..

    But seriously, cool bike, sick vid, congrats on the new arrival!
