2017 BMW motorcycles

WE HAVE just landed in the south of Spain, where we’re going to ride the 2017 BMW S1000R, R nineT Racer and R nineT Pure.

If you’ve got a question about any of these bikes, just leave us a comment below or send an email to simon@visordown.com and we’ll answer your question in our write up.

If you’re in need of a reminder about any of these bikes, here you go:

The 2017 S1000R has a new, lighter chassis, more power – up to 165hp from 160 while being Euro4 compliant, with more advanced electronics, a quickshifter that works up and down the gearbox, plus an updated exhaust with Akrapovic titanium silencer as standard.

The R nineT Racer is the racey version of the flagship R nineT heritage bike, aimed at recreating superbikes from the 1970s and 80s. It’s got a more focused riding position plus a front fairing. Power comes from the R nineT’s now-EU4 compliant boxer twin, with unchanged torque and power.

The R nineT Pure is the entry point to the R nineT range and is aimed at customers that are really interested in really customising the bike to make it more unique.

Comments

Vibes are just an irritant on the current bike - but is the new s1000r any better? And basically, is there any obvious difference to the old bike?

is new 2017 s1000r worth the upgrade from previous version?
