BMW Motorrad Malaysia recently introduced the All-New BMW S 1000 XR, with a number of significant updates.
Featuring a new layout for the main frame, the S 1000 XR is now 10 kg lighter than the outgoing model, and comes with redesigned fuel tank flanks and body parts in the seat area which provides better support and an improved knee grip.
The “ergonomic triangle” between the handlebar, seat surface, and footrests have also been redesigned in order to offer the rider a more comfortable and relaxed riding position.
Standard offerings include an integrated Pannier Holder, a toll card compartment as well as storage compartment underneath the seat. The new variant also comes with optional features that have now been made standard, including the main centre stand, hand protection guard as well as heated grips.
The All-New BMW S 1000 XR also comes equipped with turn indicators and rear light unit, where the headlight features the latest LED technology with two symmetrically arranged LED units each for low beam, high beam and parking light.
In addition, there are the adaptive cornering lights that have been designed with precision to enhance illumination of the road at night when cornering. For enhanced recognition of the vehicle during the day, the Headlight Pro DRL (Daytime Riding Light) is integrated as a standard feature into the bike.
Power comes courtesy of a newly developed in-line four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 999 cc,and an increased maximum output of 165 hp and 114 Nm of torque, which enables the bike to hit a top speed of 200km/h.
Compared to the predecessor model, the 4th, 5th and 6th gear now have longer ratios in order to reduce noise, fuel consumption and engine speed level.
In addition to a smoother and self-reinforcing anti-hopping clutch, the All-New BMW S 1000 XR now features the electrically controlled engine drag torque control (MSR) to prevent the rear wheel from slipping as a result of an abrupt throttling or downshifting.
Four riding modes are available as standard – Rain, Road, Dynamic and Dynamic Pro, and for the first time, the Dynamic Pro mode can be fully configured to offer a wide range of setting options.
Further complementing the whole package is the latest generation Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and DTC Wheelie function which can be configured separately.
In enhancing safety measures when braking in banking position, the ABS Pro provides a fortified degree of performance and safety to provide extreme riding pleasure. The All-New BMW S 1000 XR also includes the Hill Start Control Pro as standard to offer support on steep inclines.
The All-New BMW S 1000 XR is also equipped with the latest generation of BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), providing a dynamic riding experience with a distinctive level of riding comfort.
Dynamic ESA Pro is available with two damping modes of Road and Dynamic, along with the automatic load compensation. The new variant also features the dynamic brake assistant DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) to provide support to the rider during braking manoeuvres. For more convenience, the new variant also features an integrated Keyless Ride function.
The completely redeveloped instrument panel of the all-new BMW S 1000 XR displays an extended range of information on a large 6.5-inch TFT screen, excellent for optimum visibility even in difficult lighting conditions.
The Pure Ride screen has all the information required for regular riding on the road including vehicle status overview, while the Core screen displays banking position, braking and traction control. A practical arrow navigation system with app is also included as standard.
Offered in two colours – Ice Grey and Racing Red, the all-new BMW S 1000 XR is priced at RM121,500.
