More powerful and versatile than ever before, the incredible power on this super-bike drives the BMW S1000 RR to the next level. Performance has been stepped up, as nearly every part of the RR has been refined and improved. The end product: lighter, faster, extremely good looking and perfectly equipped.
In the hunt for the perfect line, the 152 kW (207 HP) BMW S1000 RR sacrifices nothing in order to do so on the limit. Ten years have passed since the first generation of the RR arrived and captivated the world of motorcycles. Now, the new era of performance begins. Available in three models; S 100 RR, S 1000 RR Sport and the S 1000 RR with M Package, pole position is always on the cards.
The flawless design is not just for the aesthetics, each component has been sculpted in order to benefit performance. The frame that is built upon is enhanced with innovative suspension technology allowing a decrease in overall weight and an increase in precision, all of which is experienced from the unique seating position. The engine is now 4 kg lighter and boasts a narrower shape, resulting in improved handling and ergonomics. Built to see your competitors in the background, the rearview mirrors harness the front indicators; meanwhile, the standard LED headlights to instigate a competitive and dynamic look. Dominating in rear design, the S1000 RR displays the number plate lighting, number plate holder, LED turn signals, tails lights and brake lights. Refined, isn’t it? Select from three colourways; Light white/Racing blue metallic/Racing red, Mineral Grey metallic and Black Storm metallic all with M carbon wheels and M sport seat.
For those in search of speed and performance, the RR fills all desires. Suitable for not only the road, but the RR also adapts to circuit requirements by the removal of the rearview mirror and number plate - race-ready. The newly developed four-cylinder engine is the perfect power train, producing 152 kW (207 HP) at 13,500 rpm and an optimal torque curve. Aided by the innovative BMW ShiftCam technology, the RR has the ability to decide the valve opening time and the valve lift by virtue of the camshaft. This technology results in the RR being able to produce significantly more torque and power in low and medium engine speeds.
Travelling in any condition, the grip is guaranteed with the four standard modes available: RAIN, ROAD, DYNAMIC and RACE each engulf diverse riding styles. Available as an accessory, Pro mode sets the limit with three additional race modes; RACE Pro 1, RACE Pro 2 and RACE Pro 3 aided by Launch Control, Pitlane Limited, DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) and HSC (Hill Start Control Pro). The technology embedded within the S1000 RR raises the ability of both bike and rider. The full-colour 6.5” TFT display is easily navigable through the multi-controller, allowing numerous modifications to settings to benefit the rider. Harnessing the new DTC (Traction Control), the RR is gifted increased forward momentum thanks to the athletic, yet efficient traction.
Always pushing to discover the limit, the new BMW S1000 RR is the superbike of superlatives.
