BMW S 1000 RR Turbo By Motokouture

On its own, the BMW S 1000 RR boasts enough power to scare the daylights out of any avid rider. However, for Steven Decaluwe of Belgium-based Motokouture Motorcycles, fear isn’t in his bag of tricks. So what does he decide to do? Well, install a turbocharger of course.

The motivation came from Steven’s desire to show off the capabilities of both the chassis and the electronic riding aids of the bike. So, he installed a Garrett turbocharger neatly between the bike’s custom fuel tank and the airbox, hidden away to serve as a surprise to whoever’s lucky enough to give this thing a spin. Steven also had to revise the engine management software and mapping to make this happen as well. After all was said and done, though, the new bike now boasts 296 hp at the rear wheel, 107 ft.-lbs of torque and a top speed of 198mph. New air intakes were also fabricated as were the custom exhaust headers.

The ride now also features a carbon fiber swingarm, rides atop a pair of BMW HP4 wheels, a custom-made seat, and electronics box. He named it VDC#92/MK30 after his friend and famous Belgian racer Vick De Cooremeter who passed in 2014, claiming he’d be the only one willing to test this beast of a bike. And you know what, he’s probably right.
