Superbike riding dynamics and powerful, emotive roadster styling – these are the hallmarks of the BMW S 1000 R. The new naked bike from BMW Motorrad is directly derived from the S 1000 RR superbike and uses the same innovative technology. The close family resemblance to the “RR” is instantly obvious. The simplified appearance of the new S 1000 R exudes an aggressive, dynamic energy. A well-thought-out overall concept, with 160 hp maximum power and a weight of 207 kg (456 lbs), as well as Race ABS, ASC and a choice of two riding modes as standard makes the BMW S 1000 R a dynamic sports roadster.

In-line four-cylinder engine with optimized low to mid-range performance.

When modifying the S 1000 RR’s 999 cc four-cylinder in-line engine for use in the S 1000 R, the engineers were looking in particular to provide punchy response all the way through the rpm range. To provide the ideal set-up both for everyday use and for sporty riding on the open road, they significantly increased the low and mid-range power and torque. At the same time, maximum rpm has been reduced by approximately 2,000 rpm. Maximum power of 118 kW (160 hp) is reached at 11,000 rpm and peak torque of 112 Nm (approx. 83 lb-ft) at 9,250 rpm. Up to 7500 rpm, this engine version develops 10 Newton meters (approx. 7 lb-ft) more torque than the S 1000 RR. This provides punchy low-end response that is ideal on twisty single-lane roads. Among other things, this was achieved by using redesigned cylinder head ducts, modified cam profiles and appropriately modified engine management. The new BMS-X engine management system also supports an E-Gas “throttle-by-wire” system.

ASC (Automatic Stability Control), Race ABS and a choice of two riding modes as standard. Riding mode Pro with two additional modes and DTC optionally available.

For optimal adaptation to different conditions and rider requirements, the S 1000 R comes with two riding modes and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as standard. The “Rain” and “Road” modes cater to different road surface conditions using different power and torque curves, and applying different levels of Race ABS and ASC intervention. This provides an important safety bonus, particularly under variable road conditions.

Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), incorporating two additional riding modes – “Dynamic” and “Dynamic Pro” – is available as a factory option. This option allows riders to make the most of the S 1000 R’s sporty performance potential both on the road and on the race track. Dynamic Traction Control, which includes a lean angle sensor, offers safe and dynamic acceleration which is currently state-of-the-art for a production motorcycle.

Innovative chassis and suspension technology with large damping reserves and high- performance brakes. Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) optionally available.

However ambitious the riding style, the chassis and suspension of the S 1000 R is designed to match the dynamic power delivery of the in-line-four engine. Based on that of the S 1000 RR, it uses the proven aluminum alloy perimeter frame, in which the engine forms part of the load-bearing structure. As on the RR, an adjustable upside-down fork and a dual swingarm with adjustable central spring strut support the wheels front and rear. Roadster-specific suspension requirements are met by a slight change in geometry. As on the RR, vigorous, stable and above all safe braking is provided by a braking system that comprises a twin-disc brake with two radial 4-piston fixed calipers at the front and a single- disc brake at the rear, with partially integral Race ABS. Dynamic Damping Control (DDC), available as a factory option, offers the benefits of electronic damping control which dynamically adapts the damping to the current riding situation with split-second speed.
