With an emotional Roadster look combined with super sporty driving dynamics, that’s what the new BMW S 1000 R is all about. The dynamic Roadster based on the BMW S 1000 RR enters a new dimension.
«With our new BMW S 1000 R, we have tried to preserve the strengths of its predecessor and take into account the potential that we know thanks to the press and customer feedback on the new BMW S 1000 R. The team also made perfect use of the benefits provided by the new architecture«. Ralf Mölleken, complete vehicle project manager
Derivative directly from the super sporty BMW S 1000 RR in key areas of engine and the chassis, the Dynamic roadster offers the same innovative technology. The close kinship to the «RR» can be seen from all angles. With his reduction to the essential, the new BMW S 1000 R offers unprecedented dynamic response.
Thanks to its maximum power of 121 kW (165 hp) optimized for acceleration combined with the unbeatable low weight of 199 kg (DIN) as well as ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), lighting Led on a large scale and much more serial, the new BMW S 1000 R once again sets the point of reference in the dynamic Roadster segment.
New development, 5 kg lighter powertrain based on the BMW S 1000 RR with adapted gear ratios, optimized mid-range power and Engine Drag Torque (MSR) control as optional extras.
Engine four cylinders in line is based on that of the BMW S 1000 RR and generates 121 kW (165 hp) at 11,000 rpm. The maximum torque of 114 Nm is available to 9,250 rpm. The engine rev range was made even broader, more complete and more harmonious in terms of achieving even more optimized handling thanks to a particularly linear torque curve.
With the purpose of reduce noise and consumption levels fuel, as well as the level of engine speed, especially at cruising speeds on open roads, 4th, 5th and 6th gears now have longer gear ratios.
In addition to a softer, self-reinforcing anti-bounce clutch, the new BMW S 1000 R is equipped with Engine Drag Torque Control (MSR) for the first time as an optional extra. Motor drag torque control prevents rear wheel from slipping as a result of abrupt acceleration or downshifting thanks to electronic control.

Completely new and lighter chassis based on the BMW S 1000 RR with Flex Frame, Full Floater Pro kinematics, lower swingarm and optimized ergonomics.
The chassis also underwent a significant reduction in weight, just like the whole motorcycle. The frame and swingarm are based on that of the BMW S 1000 RR and have been considerably manufactured lighter than its predecessor. At the same time, the so-called Flex Frame engine takes on a much greater support role than before. The new box offers more advantages due to its very narrow design.
This considerably reduces the width of the motorcycle in the area of knee contact, which offers a position of conduction more relaxed with even more freedom of movement. A adjustable handlebar clamp allows the driver to make ergonomic height adjustments.
Are available now two positions as standard: 0 mm / +10 mm towards the front. In addition, they offer optional handlebar riser mounts 10 mm, which can also be turned in the direction of travel 0 mm / + 10 mm.
The suspended swingarm has been replaced by that of the BMW S 1000 RR and the spring-damper arrangement with Full Floater Pro kinematics it is now significantly further from the axis of rotation and the motor. This prevents the engine from overheating due to residual heat and ensures an even more stable temperature behavior and an even more constant damping response.
In combination with the swingarm, which has its roots in motorsport, results in a increased tire grip Y less wear thereof.
Three driving modes, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and ABS Pro as standard. Optional equipment «Driving Modes Pro» with «Dynamic Pro» driving mode, Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), engine drag torque control (MSR, «Engine Brake» and «Power Wheelie»).
The new BMW S 1000 R is equipped as standard with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), ABS Pro with lean angle optimization and all three driving modes. “Rain”, “Road” and “Dynamic”. The fully configurable ‘Dynamic Pro’ mode is also available with a particularly wide range of setting options as part of the ‘Driving Modes Pro«.
With the ‘Pro Driving Modes’, the new BMW S 1000 R also features the «Engine Brake» function together with motor drag torque control (MSR) and function “Power Wheelie”. As part of the “Driving Modes Pro” option, Dynamic Braking Control (DBC) also assists the driver during emergency braking maneuvers.
Multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5-inch TFT display for excellent readability and maximum range of information.
The instrument panel The new BMW S 1000 R was also replaced by that of the BMW S 1000 RR. Special emphasis was placed on better readability possible, plus a wide range of functions and information. Therefore, the screen was designed to get bigger for good readability and optimal information display, even in difficult lighting conditions.
Driver you can choose from custom displays for various purposes. The screen Pure ride, for example, provides all the information necessary for the normal road driving, while a additional central display displays screens for the bank angle, deceleration and traction control.
A smartphone interface by bluetooth which enables arrow navigation based on
applications is already included as standard. The TFT screen it is operated comfortably from the handlebars using the multi-controller. The optional M package provides a third Core display with bar display and stopwatch.
New LED headlight and powerful LED light units as standard. Pro Headlight with adaptive turning light and iconic light guides with daytime running light function as optional extras.
The lighting units in the new BMW S 1000 R are based on state-of-the-art LED technology. These include the eye-catching new LED headlight with optimized low beam and high beam headlights. The newly designed turn signals and taillights also use LED technology. The rear indicators have been adopted from the BMW S 1000 RR and feature a integrated taillight / brake function.
The front turn indicators are ‘hidden’ in the fork area. The adaptive turn signal, which is a component of the Pro Headlight as a factory option, guarantees greater security during night driving. In this case, they are added more LED modules. The driver benefits from better road lighting in the curves to make night driving even safer.
New, even more dynamic design in an attractive base color and two exclusive style variants.
In its latest edition, the BMW S 1000 R also clearly borrows from its super sports counterpart, the BMW S 1000 RR, but with an emphasis on its characteristics of a dynamic Roadster. To a greater extent than before, the “tail up – nose down” aspect gives the BMW S 1000 R a eye-catching visual impact Y dynamic with its new fairing elements.
The color concept also highlights the sporty and dynamic look of the new BMW S 1000 R. In addition to the basic color in Racing Red non metallic, options are available Style Sport and the package M with additional product content.
The highlights of the new BMW S 1000 R:
- 4-cylinder in-line engine newly developed, 5 kg lighter, based on that of the BMW S 1000 RR with optimized mid-range power and handling, as well as new gear ratios in 4th to 6th gears.
- The lightest dynamic roadster in its class: 5 kg weight reduction a 199 kg DIN weight n empty or 202 kg, including comfort and dynamics package. The M package reduces vehicle weight by other 4.8 kg (2 kg with forged wheels / 3.7 kg with carbon fiber wheels).
- Power and higher torque: 121 kW (165 hp) at 11,000 rpm and 114 Nm at 250 rpm.
- At least 90 Nm torque available from 5,500 to 12,000 rpm. More than 80 Nm already available from 3,000
- Effort-saving linear torque curve: better handling over the entire speed range of the
