Built for the free road, the BMW S 1000 RR is 204 kilograms of pure motorbike muscle with a 199 hp output.
The S 1000 RR model year 2015 has been completely revised: BMW Motorrad engineers have entirely reconstructed the bike's technology, design and fittings. The result: in its origins a genuine Double R on the road a new super sports machine.
Not all of what is new in the Double R is instantly visible - many of the innovative details are concealed beneath its trim.
The RR is the epitome of a superbike - and that applies to its design, too. Now in its third generation, you can instantly see its increased power.
A key focus was the design: the flyline is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the volume of the contours and shapes perfectly balanced. Each and every trim component has been redesigned from the rear to the front.
The headlamp element is more balanced in effect than in the previous model. The asymmetry of the split face has been reduced and the lamp positions modified. The entire section is lighter, clearer and more dynamic.
The new engine spoiler is longer, thereby emphasizing the dynamic lines of the design as a whole. This also applies to the new windshield and the new rear section.
MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER BEFORE.
The new engine now delivers an impressive 199 hp - 6 hp more than in the previous model. Torque has been increased by 2 - 5 Nm and the output curve improved from 4,500 rpm. The throttle valves are electronically controlled using the new electromotive throttle actuator technology.
The new rear silencer with dual flow results in increased torque within the lower engine speed range as well as an improvement in the charge cycle. This also reduces exhaust gas back pressure for increased power. All in all the new exhaust system without front silencer reduces the bike's weight by three kilos.
The riding modes Rain, Sport and Race with ABS and ASC come as standard in the new S 1000 RR. The Slick and User modes are new optional extras.
In the latter, the rider can define various DDC and DTC settings to allow two different suspension set-ups to be tested during travel at the press of a button.
