The release of the S1000RR took the world by storm and BMW has since turned to one tire manufacturer for its OE rubber needs: Continental. Spooned onto each 2012 S1000RR, the all-new ContiSportAttack 2 is also available in sizes suitable for most modern sportbikes. Germany’s speed-rich proving grounds helped develop a superbike package capable on both the street and track. Traction Skin, a micro-rough tread surface, minimizes break-in time and dispels the traditional slippery surface experienced with fresh hoops. The Black Chili tread compound reaches temperature quickly and grips at the most aggressive of lean angles. Striking a balance between street longevity and race traction turned out a tire qualified for the meanest machines on the market.
