Last year, the S 1000 RR turned the literbike world on its ear, winning our four-cylinder literbike comparison test and just about taking Bike of the Year honors as well. The base model itself is stunning, but add electronic rider aids like Dynamic Traction Control, Race ABS and Gear Shift Assist for the truly ultimate.

BMW R1200R $NA
Engine A-C 8V 1170 Opposed-Twin | Seat HT. NA | Wheelbase NA
The company's long-running naked bike is updated for '11, but we don't have much more information than that. Our best guess is the R model will have the double-overhead-cam, dual-plug, radial-valve engine and drivetrain from the GS and RT models, which increases output to 110 horsepower and maximum engine speed to 8500 rpm.
