Official: 2014 BMW S1000R in full

Naked version of BMW's superbike produces 160bhp and is tuned for torque

THIS is BMW's new S1000R, the naked version of their S1000RR superbike.

Revealed at the EICMA motorcycle show today, one of BMW's worst-kept secrets finally gets confirmed.

The 160bhp machine is based on the S1000RR superbike. The engine's cylinder head and camshaft have been redesigned and in addition to this, the S1000R runs a new map and is tuned for torque.

The redline is now set 2,000rpm lower than the S1000RR and it produces its maximum power at 11,000rpm and maximum torque of 83lbft at 9,250rpm. The super naked makes 7lbft more torque than the superbike.

The S1000R comes with Race ABS and traction control as standard. There are two riding modes, Road and Rain but you can bolt on a sports package which ads a Dynamic and Dynamic Pro mode along with a quickshifter.

The S1000R comes with conventional suspension, adjustable for compression and rebound at the front and rebound at the rear. Dynamic Damping Suspension (DDS) is an optional extra.

The S1000R features a steering damper, aluminium tank and a 22mm longer wheelbase than its superbike sibling.

It weighs in at 207kg which is almost identical to the S1000RR. The S1000R is available in Racing red non-metallic, Frozen dark blue metallic and Light white non-metallic paintwork.
