The highlights of the new BMW S 1000 RR:
– 4 kg lighter, newly developed 4-cylinder in-line engine with BMW ShiftCam Technology for variation of valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side.
– Increased output and torque: 152 kW (207 hp) (in the USA: 151 kW (205 hp)) at 13 500 rpm and 113 Nm at 11 000 rpm.
– At least 100 Nm of torque from 5 500 to 14 500 rpm.
– Effort-saving, linear torque curve: further improved ridability and controllability due to increased torque in the lower and medium engine speed range.
– Newly developed suspension featuring Flex Frame, with the engine taking on more of a load-bearing function.
– Significantly improved ergonomics due to Flex Frame.
– Refined suspension geometry for further improved handling, increased traction and crystal-clear feedback in the threshold range.
– Further developed electronic damping adaptation Dynamic Damping Control DDC with new valve generation as an optional equipment item.
– New rear wheel suspension weighing 300 g less than before with Full Floater Pro kinematics.
– Weight reduction of 11 – 14.5 kg to 197 kg when fully fuelled (DIN unladen) and 193.5 kg with M Package.
– New exhaust system weighing some 1.3 kg less, with front silencer.
– New 6-axis sensor cluster.
– Further developed Dynamic Traction Control DTC as standard
– DTC Wheelie Function as standard.
– Adjustable (+/- shift) DTC Wheelie Function as an optional equipment item.
– Engine brake function, adjustable.
– ABS Pro for increased safety when braking, also in banking position, as standard.
– New riding modes “Rain”, “Road”, “Dynamic” and “Race” as standard and “Pro Modes” option with three additional configurable modes “Race Pro 1-3” for optimum individual adaptation to conditions.
– Launch Control for perfect starts comes with “Pro Modes” option.
– Pit Lane Limiter for precise pit lane speeds also included with the “Pro Modes” option.
– Shift Assistant Pro for fast up and down shifting without clutch, standard.
– Shift pattern can easily be reversed.
– Electronic cruise control as an ex works option.
– New instrument panel with 6.5-inch screen offering excellent readability and featuring a Pure Ride screen as well as three Core screens.
The new BMW S 1000 RR sees its world premiere at the EICMA 2018. With a completely newly developed engine and suspension, engine output increased by 6 kW (8 hp) to 152 kW (207 hp) (in the USA: 151 kW (205 hp)) and a weight reduction of 208 kg to 197 kg (193.5 kg with M Package), the supersports bike originally launched in 2009 now goes into its third completely new generation. In addition to enhanced performance, other focus points were to make the new RR at least one second faster than its predecessor, create a more user-friendly design and ensure it offered maximum controllability and ridability. Whether in everyday use, on winding country roads or for high-performance race track riding – the new RR leaves nothing to be desired. In particular because BMW Motorrad has moved the assistance systems such as traction and wheelie control, ABS and Hill Start Control to a whole new level; the same applies to the LED lighting system and large TFT screen.
With its newly developed 4-cylinder in-line engine, now 4 kg lighter than before, the new RR achieves an entirely new level of performance. For this purpose, not only was the geometry of the intake and exhaust ports further optimised, the motorcycle now also comes with BMW ShiftCam Technology – an entirely new technology for BMW motorcycles which varies the valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side. A revised intake passage and a new exhaust system that is 1.3 kg lighter likewise contribute to increased overall performance. Ridability and sprint capability benefit from a substantially increased torque across a wide engine speed range.
On the suspension side, too, the BMW Motorrad developers have left no stone unturned. With the aim of achieving a significant weight reduction, the engine in the new RR now has more of a load-bearing function than was previously the case. The requirement in designing the new main frame, in addition to improving ergonomics, was to have the force applied directly to the engine structure via the shortest possible paths. A significant increase in riding dynamics was achieved in the new RR based on the combination of the new riding geometry, optimised wheel load distribution and a substantial weight optimisation. The new Full Floater Pro kinematics in the rear wheel suspension also contributes significantly to the perceptible increase in suspension performance. All in all, riders of the new RR will benefit from further improved handling, increased traction and even more transparent feedback in all riding states up to the threshold range. In short: the new RR noticeably raises the bar on the suspension side while at the same time offering improved user-friendliness and controllability.
