Upgrades Hit The S 1000 XR

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.

With the 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).

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.

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.
