2021 BMW S1000R: All You Need to Know

BMW S1000R

Besides the new M1000RR, BMW Motorrad Malaysia also took the wraps off the 2021 BMW S1000R, which is pretty much a naked S1000RR.

The new S1000R is offered in two new variants (Style Sport / M Package), both fitted with unique set of equipment that set each variant apart from the other.

BMW S1000R

Available in the Hockenheim Silver Metallic for the Style Sport variant, and a combination of Light White, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing Red for the M Package variant, the New BMW S 1000 R also features adaptive LED headlights and brake lights, along with the Headlight Pro and Daytime Running Lamp offerings.

How much?

The on-the-road price for the new S1000R (with 3-year warranty, 3-year roadside assistance) stands at RM104,500 for the Style Sport variant and RM119,500 for the M Package variant.

With the Financing Plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, ownership of the new BMW S1000R starts from RM1,270.00 per month based on balloon financing estimates of an 80% loan on a 4-year tenure.

Powertrain

The model continues to be powered by the water/oil-cooled 4-cylinder 4-stroke in-line engine with a capacity of 999 cc and a maximum output of 207 hp and 113 Nm, while consuming 6.4 litres of fuel per 100 km. The model is also equipped with the BMW ShiftCam Technology.

BMW S1000R

The new variants are equipped with four riding modes as standard – “Rain”, “Road”, “Dynamic” and “Race”, complete with the Riding Mode Pro.

These riding modes also control functions such as the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and ABS Pro for increased safety when braking or in banking position, while the BMW Motorrad Integral ABS system provides an even higher degree of safety coupled with the Dynamic Engine Brake Control (DBC).

The Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) also equips the new variants, along with Cruise Control and the HP Shift Assistant Pro.

BMW M Endurance Chain

The New BMW S1000R in the BMW M Package variant will exclusively feature the new BMW M Endurance Chain which is maintenance-free and offers maximum environmental sustainability, as the chain has a resident permanent lubricant filling between the rollers and pins, enclosed by X-rings.

BMW S1000R

Additional lubricant addition for the rollers is now no longer necessary, nor is any re-tensioning required from time to time due to the usual wear.

With the excellent dry lubrication properties and the elimination of wear, the tetrahedral amorphous carbon coated rollers of the M Endurance chain offer maintenance comfort equivalent to that of a shaft drive motorcycle.

Key features

The New BMW S1000R also arrives complete with the Keyless Ride function, USB Charging Socket, Passenger Package, and heated grips, along with a motor spoiler.

BMW S1000R

Exclusive equipment and accessories offered to the BMW M Package variant consist of the M sport seat, M light weight battery, Sports Silencer, and M GPS Lap trigger.

BMW C400 GT

Both models are powered by an efficiency-optimised single-cylinder engine with a capacity of 350cc as the drive unit.

Powertrain

The engine outputs 34 hp at 7,500 rpm and 35 Nm peak torque at 5,750 rpm. The models employ power transmission through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gearbox including a torsional drivetrain swing arm with minimum vibration.

BMW C400 X

The engine is now equipped with an electronic throttle grip, or known as the E-gas, and an electrically-operated throttle valve.

Further optimisations include a modified matrix and coating of the catalytic converter, a wideband oxygen sensor, modifications to the cylinder head, a new sensor on the generator cover, an adapted wiring harness and modified idle speed control.

Further optimisation

The idle speed regulator in the airbox has been omitted and the idle speed control is now carried out via a throttle valve bypass and a turbulence system.

BMW C400 GT

Safety is also offered via the newly-optimised Automatic Stability Control (ASC) that now features automatic radius calibration and increased regulation quality – giving the vehicles a more sensitive response, especially on wet and slippery surfaces.

Deactivating the ASC is now no longer necessary as well. Suspension and damping continue to be managed by a telescopic fork at the front and two spring struts at the rear.

New brakes

The brake system of the New BMW C400 X and BMW C400 GT are now revised with new brake calipers. The double-disc brake system at the front now offers a more stable and clearly defined pressure point, as well as improved roll-back behaviour of the brake pistons.

BMW C400 X

This is accompanied by aligned lever travels for the rear brake on the left and the front brake on the right for a symmetrical braking feel. Both continue to be fitted with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) as standard.

Newly developed engine

At the heart of the new R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B is a 2-cylinder boxer engine, the “Big Boxer”, which is a completely newly development for the R 18 models.

BMW R 18 Transcontinental

The most powerful 2-cylinder flat twin engine ever built in motorbike series production boasts an engine capacity of 1,802 cc.

It generates an output of 91 hp at 4 750 rpm. In the 2,000 to 4,000 rpm range, it delivers more than 150 Nm of torque at all times.

BMW R 18 B

Like the BMW R 5, the rear swinging arm, which is manufactured in a similar design, encloses the rear axle drive in the same style using bolted connections.

In order to achieve the best possible ride response even when riding with a pillion and fully loaded, the rear suspension strut features travel-dependent damping and automatic load compensation.

DCC and ACC as standard

The R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B are already equipped as standard with DCC electronic cruise control (Dynamic Cruise Control).

BMW R 18 B seat

There is also the Active Cruise Control (ACC) which allows relaxed gliding with distance control – without the rider having to adjust the speed to the vehicle in front.

Where necessary, the cornering control system automatically reduces the speed, giving the rider the right speed for a comfortable and safe banking angle.

BMW R18 B

The new R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B also feature a casual, so-called “mid-mounted footpeg” position of the footrests.

Comfort

The R 18 Transcontinental is equipped with an especially comfortable seat and seat heating as standard to ensure long-distance riding comfort even in two-person operation.

BMW R 18 B

Engine drag torque control

In addition, the new R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B are equipped with an engine drag torque control (MSR) as standard.

BMW R 18 B

In addition to other options, a reversing aid makes manoeuvring a comfortable affair and the Hill Start Control function makes starting off uphill easy.

BMW R 18 B

As standard, the new R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B feature a sound system developed in collaboration with the British manufacturer Marshall, featuring 2-way speakers integrated into the front of the fairing.

First Edition

Right from the time of market launch, the new R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B will be available worldwide as exclusive R 18 Transcontinental First Edition and R 18 B First Edition versions.
