BMW S 1000 RR

Welcome to the new Planet Power. The S 1000 RR revolutionised the supersports class when it first came out in 2009. Now – six years later – it steps up to the very same challenge. The S 1000 RR model year 2015 has been completely revised: BMW Motorrad engineers have entirely reconceived the bike’s technology, design and fittings. The result: in its origins a genuine Double R, on the road a new supersports machine. 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. The flyline is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the volume of the contours and shapes perfectly balanced. From the rear to the front section, every trim component has been redesigned – including the headlamp element, where the symmetry has been given greater emphasis.

In the course of its lifetime the RR design has become crisper and clearer, and sharper too, since the facelift and the first RR in 2009. It has moved away from the original rounded shapes and so it has become more “clear-cut”. The RR is new from front/headlights to tail, not one single trim panel has been carried over unchanged from the predecessor. All these features are new on the 2015 model:

New windscreen including M4 screws, frontHeadlight shape, asymmetry swapped over.Longer engine spoiler.Exhaust system.Footrests.Side panels, right and left.Painted fairing side panel, top.Tank covers, painted.Airbox cover.Snappy tail of the S 1000 R with new RR seat pad.Seat-hump cover (OA/OE).The RR can do everything the HP4 can do, and a touch better as well. This is perceptible through enhanced, clearer feedback off the front wheel, higher tracking accuracy, more traction and for the first time higher engine power. The RR accelerates to open-road speed at least 0.5 to 1 second faster than the HP4.

Riding dynamics coupled with touring suitability – at the very highest level: that’s the R 1200 RS. With its potent engine and stable suspension, the sports touring bike offers more than just a huge amount of riding pleasure. Thanks to its relaxed, sporty seating position and its perfect wind and weather protection, the bike offers an entirely new ride feel when travelling fast and riding along country roads in style.

The modern concept of a dynamic blend of sports and touring motorcycle is demonstrated visually too, by means of half fairing featuring symmetrical headlamps derived from two generations of the RR. The elegantly shaped handlebar unit with attached forged aluminium section perfectly combines function and ergonomics.
