BMW con­firm of­fi­cial works WSB re­turn

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

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.

Tom Sykes will spear­head new BMW ef­fort
