BMW S1000 R
A New High-Performance Roadster
A roadster, reduced to the essentials: maximum performance. 160 bhp/118 kW, 112 Nm torque and a power-to-weight ratio of 1.29 kilograms per bhp – and the competition disappears in the rear mirror. The S 1000 R is the benchmark in its segment.
The high-performance 4-cylinder in-line engine delivers extremely linear torque across the entire range. The S 1000 R has an output of 160 PS/118 kW at 11,000 rpm, with a maximum of 112 Nm torque at 9,250 rpm.
The S 1000 R can be reined in and unleashed at the press of a button. The “Rain” mode provides a gentle throttle response, with ABS and ASC adapted to wet road surfaces. Meanwhile “Road” optimises throttle response, ABS and ASC for dry asphalt. The Pro modes are for those chasing the threshold range: “Dynamic” and “Dynamic Pro” get the “R” into shape for the limits.
Power is nothing without control. The S 1000 R is the first ever motorcycle to be fitted with Race ABS and ASC (automatic stability control) as standard. This duo ensures excellent acceleration and deceleration figures at threshold level. They can be activated and deactivated during travel, making for uninterrupted riding fun.
