Here's the Press story from BMW on the above images:

Supermodel on a Superbike

You wouldn’t believe the extraordinary lengths that BMW Motorrad would go to in order to bring you these stunning images of the new S 1000 RR superbike, but we hope you’ll agree that the results are well worth the effort.

With a brief to combine the outstanding high-tech design of the S 1000 RR carbon race bike with a cool looking fashion style, BMW Motorrad commissioned top photographer Markus Hofmann to capture the action. Markus specialises in Stills, People and Events but he knew he was facing a real challenge with this outdoor shoot on one of the coldest days of the year. The motorcycle arrived in Munich in the early hours of December 10th and was taken to a small airfield at Oberschleißheim, where the team was waiting. With bad weather conditions forecast and only a few hours of decent light available at this time of the year, Markus knew that every second would count.

“The new BMW S 1000 RR race bike is an outstanding looking motorcycle in terms of its design and styling, so I was knew it would be an extraordinary motorcycle to photograph,” said Markus. “Because we wanted to have a helicopter in the shot, it was necessary to discuss all the safety instructions with the pilot and make sure that the shots that we wanted were actually achievable. One of our assistants was responsible for communication with the helicopter pilot, which was done by means of hand signals in order to ensure that he could manoeuvre the helicopter into the right position and move around if necessary.

“The other assistant was in charge of handling the lighting system and protecting it the from the strong rush of wind created by the helicopter’s rotors. There was also a stylist on hand, who would be refreshing or changing the look and make-up of Ann Kathrin Ruhl, our model for the day. The coldness, of course, made things difficult for everyone, and the ‘wind-chill factor’ was intensified by the helicopter blades, which affected Ann Kathrin more than anyone else, but she was very professional, having modelled many times in ‘extreme’ situations. With such a great team around me, I was able to focus completely on the photography and only needed to give short instructions from time to time, which made the job go smoothly. I think the results are very effective.”

Bettina Bruaröy Maurer, the stylist for the day, was delighted with the results of the photoshoot: “My passion for this work is to create moods where the viewer feels drawn into and captivated by the picture. This idea I had in this instance was to mix a style of feminine fashion and the typical motorbike outfit. I wanted the model to look like a strong independent ‘Bond’ girl who perfectly matches the BMW style and charisma, and I wanted the pictures to surprise and to create harmony – this job was perfect in achieving these objectives!”

Without a doubt, the coldest person on the day was model Ann Kathrin Ruhl from the Java Model Management agency. Without the benefit of windproof, waterproof and thermal clothing, she still managed to look great, despite being chilled to the bone in one of the less glamorous locations she has been photographed in. “It was freezing cold out there and the noise from the chopper was absolutely ear-piercing,” said Ann Kathrin. “Compared to some of the jobs I have done, it certainly wasn’t the easiest conditions to shoot in, but at least I had a great team who kept me smiling so this made the job more enjoyable than it could have been otherwise.”

Once the shoot was over, a shortlist of pictures was then selected back in the warmth of the studio, before being handed over to Arno Schaller, a graphic designer with more than a decade worth of experience with digital picture publishing and retouching for a variety of photographers, agencies and magazine editors. His work focuses on high-end creative compositions, and includes look and style development in beauty and fashion industries for clients such as Cosmopolitan and Getty Images.

As you can see from the ‘finished’ images, the picture below portrays the new BMW S 1000 RR as an extremely desirable, exciting, yet almost unobtainable piece of exotica, much like the supermodel sitting astride her. Her look says ‘strong fashion for a powerful woman’ and the helicopter in the background gives the scene an action/adventure look, but it’s definitely the BMW superbike that shines through as the real object of desire.

The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and I would buy that machine without any hesitation if it were for sale.

What do you think the chances are of the S1000RR shipping as depicted? Or at least a special edition? If it shipped as shown in the pictures with carbon fiber body and gas charged forks, I would pay $25k for it without a second thought. However, if the rumors about pricing competitive with Japanese liter bikes, I have a feeling that the version that we get on the street may not match those pictures. Hopefully I am very wrong!

hi, we've been discussing this point on the "latest S1000RR" thread for several months now. the bike you see is probably worth about 100,000. it's a WSBK bike!

what do you guys think of the German model?

Personally I think she'd better be suited on the new K1300S, than the S1000RR. I think for the S bikes they should shoot models who are in their 20's and not 30's. Also, a non-German model would go a long way to appeal to the whole world, rather than just the northern European countries. But then again German's tend to think locally. Personally she doesn't do it for me at all.

But these do:

BMW chicks are like BMW bikes, good quality, utilitarian. Not great design, but one grows attached and fond of them. ;-)

I meant that any time spent analysing the pictures instead of just enjoying the ravishing beauty was, perhaps, symptomatic of spending too much time in front of the computer. LOL :D

jeeez, sorry, you lost me! if you don't analyze you aren't living. r u a brainwashed zombie, or someone who likes to set his own agenda in life. the trait is called being discriminating, discerning or selective. most people on this forum are far from zombies, that's why they are interested in riding bikes outside of the collective main stream and are into unique experiences and why they are on this forum. They are very selective, not just in what they ride, but how it performs and sounds and looks. just read our threads on riders complaining about how a tranny sounds as it goes into gear, or certain FI feel between certain RPM range. I say it again, if you aren't discriminating, you aren't living. I am surprised to read your note to be frank!

Agreed.....

Bike looks great!! But the look on her face, the hair, the whole bit...just doesn't do it. Looks very forced. Especially that first shot (on the bike with the helo behind). Blech....

If you're gonna get a model...make her a hottie! If not, then just the bike, nothing but the bike please. :p
