The second generation BMW S 1000 R sports ‘tail up – nose down’ look with new body elements, and new LED headlamp. The fuel tank side panels, the tank center cover, the side panels in the shape of a stylised ‘R’ and the engine spoiler have also been redesigned. The new design is accompanied by ergonomic refinements such as a reversible handlebar clamp for increased reach and better riding position and options for the seat height adjustment.
Apart from the basic Racing Red non-metallic colour, the M Motorsport paint finishes are available with the Style Sport and the M package options. The all-new BMW S 1000 R is the first model in BMW Motorrad’s portfolio to inherit the iconic colours of the all-new BMW M 1000 RR.

999cc water cooled engine
The all-new BMW S 1000 R is powered by a newly developed water cooled 4-cylinder in-line 999cc engine with a displacement of 999 cc. The all-new BMW S 1000 RR based engine produces 165 hp of power at 11,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 9,250 rpm. The roadster shoots from 0-100 Km in 3.2 seconds and can achieve an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
In addition to a smoother, self-reinforcing anti-hopping clutch, the all-new BMW S 1000 R is equipped with engine drag torque control (MSR) for the first time as an optional extra. The engine drag torque control prevents the rear wheel from slipping due to abrupt throttling or downshifting.
The newly engineered suspension of the all-new BMW S 1000 R has enhanced riding dynamics and significantly reduced weight as compared to the predecessor model. It features a ‘Flex Frame’ which is the optimum interplay between the frame design and the engine as a load-bearing element. It improves the aerodynamics of the motorcycle and helps keep the weight low. The new suspension geometry results in clearer, improved feedback from the front and rear wheel. It further increases agility, feedback, ride precision and enhances the mechanical grip of the rear wheel.
The all-new BMW S 1000 R is fitted with the four modes ‘Rain’, ‘Road’, ‘Dynamic’ and ‘Dynamic Pro’ as standard. The S 1000 R is equipped with features like Traction Control, Wheelie-Control, ABS and ABS Pro, ‘Engine Brake function, engine drag torque control (MSR) and the ‘Power Wheelie’ function, Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), 6.5-inch TFT display, BMW Motorrad Connectivity App, practical arrow navigation with route import and multiple waypoint guidance on the display.
