BMW reveal details on the new S1000RR-based performance street bike
BMW revealed details of their new naked motorcycle, the S1000R.
BMW presenters were rehearsing their script for the new bike's official unveiling at EICMA tomorrow. The bike uses the same engine as the S1000RR but it has been re-tuned for improved low-end and midrange response. The S1000R produces 160bhp.
BMW claim it has 'R DNA' and a split-face asymetric front headlight. It has two riding modes, Race ABS, traction control and a version with 'dynamic suspension' (most likely very similar to that seen on BMW's HP4) will be available.
The new naked motorcycle's name may prove confusing for some as it's similar to the S1000RR from which this bike is dervied. In fact that's because this bike is very similar to the S1000RR.
Think of the S1000R as a S1000RR superbike without the full fairing and with a set of wide bars. It should be available in dealers before March 2014.
