BMW Motorrad has introduced the new S1000XR, with increased engine power, improved ergonomics, design refinements, and expanded standard features.
Compared to the outgoing model, the engine power has been increased by 5 hp to 170 hp at an unchanged nominal engine speed of 11,000 rpm. The main reasons for the performance increase are a flow-optimised geometry of the intake channels and a customised mapping. The maximum torque generated is still 114 Nm at 9,250 rpm.
The seat of the bike has been completely redesigned as well. It now offers an extra 10 mm of seat height (850 mm) and provides more space for the buttocks by increasing the usable length and width of the seat, allowing for better adjustment of the seating position depending on the riding conditions. A total of three different seat heights are available.
The new S1000XR also benefits from redesigned elements in its design. The rear section now features new side panels and air intakes inspired by motorsports, giving it a more dynamic look. Additionally, the radiator trim now has a textured surface, and the previously black-coloured “beak” fender is now painted in body colour.
As part of the standard equipment, Headlight Pro provides additional safety during night-time rides with its adaptive turning light. The rider benefits from improved road illumination in corners. The package also includes Daytime Running Lights (DRL) for better vehicle recognition during the day.
Keyless Ride and a 12 Ah capacity battery are now standard features. Additionally, the new BMW S1000XR is equipped with a USB charging option as standard.
Other updates include the availability of the E-Call feature in the USA, the option to equip the S1000XR with the optional M GPS Laptrigger, and the availability of
M Carbon wheels as a new optional extra or as Original BMW Motorcycle accessories.
