EICMA – BMW S1000XR unveiled

P90167332 P90167335

The long-awaited S1000XR is far from a S1000R with clothes on – featuring a detuned version of the S1000RR’s inline four, the bike boasts a new frame, swingarm and geometry to help it deliver all-day comfort in its role as a long-distance sporty mile muncher.

The engine produces 160bhp and 83lb.ft of torque for plenty of low down grunt and the bike features a wide range of rider aids – two riding modes, automatic stability control (ASC), traction control and ABS. optional extras include an additional two riding modes (Dynamic and Dynamic Pro) touring and dynamic packages, and a higher-spec cornering ABS system.

Price and on-sale dates are still to be confirmed.
