BMW S 1000 RR test

In 2023, for the 12th consecutive year, EYBIS has the support of the factory BMW Motorrad in Munich.

This means we can enable you to test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the track!
The cost of a test ride is 25 €.
This includes:

  • insurance (max. costs in the event of a crash = 2.000 €)
  • tyre usage
  • gasoline for one session of a 20' ride (in your own group instead of your own motorcycle)

After the morning briefing you can - between 9.00 and 10.00 - register for a test session.

What to bring along:

  • ID card
  • Driver's license
  • Credit card (2.000 € guarantee)

Together we will determine in which session you will test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the track.
Then we attend you at the EYBIS pit box 15’ before your test session, where you will be assigned a coach.
After a brief introduction, he will explain the main features of your test motorcycle.
After finishing your test ride you will be "received" by your coach who will be interested in your feedback.

Dynamic noise control

  • During your sessions on the track, the noise you make is measured dynamically (= while riding)
  • Dynamic limit = 101 dB
  • If you exceed this limit with a:
    • replacement exhaust without dB)killer, the circuit will ban you immediately from further participation, without a second chance
    • standard exhaust, or an aftermarket exhaust with a dB-killer, the circuit gives you a second chance, after you having worked out a solution for your noise problem, and presenting it

Everybody is responsible for the good state of his motorcycle and riders outfit.

Pay special attention to the following:

  • Motorcycle

    • brakes
    • tyres
    • chain tension
    • absence of oil leaks (check crankcase and front fork)
  • Riders outfit

    • motorcycle boots
    • leather motorcycle gloves
    • good fitted full face helmet
    • back protector
    • leather suit (one-piece is recommended, two-piece is tolerated if both pieces are firmly zipped together)
