Conquer the roads - on the BMW S 1000 R

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. Like its superbike predecessor, the S 1000 R sets the benchmark in its segment.

Linear power: the engine

The high-performance 4-cylinder in-line engine derives from the RR and was optimised for the purpose of the comparison. The result: extremely linear torque delivery for constant forward propulsion across the entire engine speed range. The engine of the S 1000 R has an output of 160 PS/118 kW at 11,000 rpm, while a maximum of 112 Nm torque at 9,250 rpm puts a smile on the rider's face at every twist of the throttle.

Ready for attack: the design

The genes of the S 1000 RR are striking at first sight, too: aggressive tail-up/nose-down design, distinctive split face and the characteristic gills. And the "R" shows much less of its sharp-edged, muscular skin. Some people call it naked - we just call it focussed on the essentials.

Versatile: the riding modes

The S 1000 R can be reined in and unleashed at the press of a button as standard. 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 available as an optional extra for those chasing the threshold range: "Dynamic" and "Dynamic Pro" get the "R" into shape for the limits.

Full control: Race ABS and ASC as standard

Keep the power under control. That’s why the S 1000 R is 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.

No compromises: the individualisation options

Two packages are available for the S 1000 R, each of which sensibly groups the various options: The "Sport" package includes the Pro modes (Rain, Road + Dynamic, Dynamic Pro), DTC, shift assistant and cruise control. The "Dynamic" package comprises the electronic suspension DDC, heated grips, LED turn indicators and an engine spoiler in body colour. There will also be an extensive range of HP parts for the S 1000 R aimed at ambitious riders.

Available in Style HP, Black Storm Metallic (Red Stripe/Black Rim), Racing Red / Black Storm Metallic (£140).

Power increase by 5bhp to 165bhp.
