BMW confirm official works WSB return
BMW Motorrad will officially return to World Superbikes in 2019, teaming up with Shaun Muir Racing to field the all-new S1000RR with Tom Sykes and Markus Reiterberger.
The BMW Motorrad Motorsport department in Munich will be fully responsible for the development of the race bike, from engine and electronics to chassis and aerodynamics. It’s a big step up from the customer race support package that BMW offered over the last five years.
Sykes and Reiterberger get their first taste of the new bike in Spain later this month with further tests in January and February.
