Although the hard-core bike racers would consider the heated grips useless, its inclusion actually makes riding more comfortable and grants your hands more responsiveness. Like most BMW bikes, 2012 BMW S1000RR’s trademark is its powertrain that is defined by smooth powerband, 6-speed gearbox, well-sorted clutch and superior engine.
