New BMW S 1000 R

A roadster that prides itself on pure riding pleasure, the S 1000 R from BMW is now available. Providing raw power and high performance for a sporty riding experience, this bike sets the bar high for its segment.

The S 1000 R grabs your attention from the very start. A striking silhouette is formed by the aggressive tail up/nose down design, the distinctive split face and the distinctive gills. With a reduced 'skin' of body paintwork, the S 1000 R shows more of its engineering brilliance and reflects the stripped-back nature of the ride. Available in Racing Red, Frozen Dark Blue Metallic or Light White, the S 1000 R can be specified to match your tastes.

There is plenty of scope for personalisation with the S 1000 R, starting with two packages of additional features. The Sport edition includes Pro modes, DTC, a gear shift assistant for extra smooth changes, and cruise control for a more comfortable ride on long-distance journeys. The Dynamic edition includes the electronic suspension DDC system, heated grips for a little luxury on cold winter days, LED turn indicators for enhanced visibility and an engine spoiler in body colours.

The S 1000 R offers you a mammoth 160hp and 112Nm of torque, inviting you to simply unleash this power as required. The bike has a classic dual water and oil-cooled four-cylinder four-stroke in-line engine, producing raw power for the purest ride on two wheels. The mechanically operated multi-plate anti-hopping clutch is situated in an oil bath for silky-smooth gear changes.

Race ABS and Automatic Stability Control (ASC) are included as standard on all S 1000 R models to help you keep all that power under control. The combination of these systems provides the rider with excellent acceleration and deceleration figures at threshold level. Riding modes including 'Rain', 'Road', 'Dynamic' and 'Dynamic +' can be activated and deactivated during riding at the press of a button, ensuring you always have the best setup available for the prevalent road conditions.
