BMW Motorrad S 1000 XR


The new BMW S 1000 XR – adventure sports, further refined.

With the launch of the BMW S 1000 XR in autumn 2014, BMW Motorrad offered its own new interpretation of the sports to touring range, not least adding a powerful dose of emotion into the mix. The adventure sports style was born - a fascinating synthesis of innovative technology, performance and safety combined with dynamic touring qualities, sporty performance, a high level of comfort and supreme everyday practicality. Changes apply to the S 1000 XR as of model year 2017, too.

Even more potent in-line 4-cylinder engine meeting EU4 requirements.

In the new S 1000 XR, BMW Motorrad presents the 999 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine not just in an adapted form to meet the requirements of the EU4 pollutant class but also with enhanced power. The output is now 121 kW (165 hp) at 11 000 rpm (previously: 118 kW (160 hp) at 11 000 rpm), in other words it has been increased by 3 kW (5 hp).

Optimised vibration-free handlebars and an increase of 10 kg in both the maximum permissible weight and the payload.

Softer isolating elements on the handlebars effectively prevent even the finest vibrations from being passed onto the handlebar ends in the new S 1000 XR.

On pleasure rides and holiday trips, the rider benefits from an increase in the maximum permissible weight of 10 kg from 434 to 444 kg in the latest edition of the S 1000 XR, which is likewise equivalent to an increase in payload of 10 kg.

The new S 1000 XR now also in refined Ocean Blue metallic matt.

As a supplement to the existing colour variants of Racing Red non-metallic and Lightwhite non-metallic/Granite Grey metallic/Racing Red non-metallic, the new S 1000 XR is now also available in Ocean Blue metallic matt. While Racing Red non-metallic stands for the sporting DNA of the S 1000 XR and the multi-colour variant highlights the bike’s touring qualities, Ocean Blue metallic matt gives the new S 1000 XR a distinctively refined appearance.
