BMW brings with 2021 the new generation of the roadster based on the S1000 RR. Taking opinions from press and customers into consideration, BMW states that the new S1000 R could use the potentials and strength from its predecessor.
Reduction has been one of the keys to improve the core parts of the bike. The power train is now 5 kilograms lighter and driven by the 4-cylinder engine that produces 165 Bhp peak performance. That in combination with a weight of 199kg promises agile riding behavior.
On the electrical side, BMW equips the new bike with LED lighting all around – from indicators, brake lights to the all new headlights with adaptive curve lighting. It comes with 3 different rides modes and ABS Pro with lean angle dependency and a separate ABS mode for wet conditions.
All relevant information is provided to the rider via a 6.5 inch TFT display to optimize readability and visualization to further reduce distractions. From general riding information to more “race” relevant statistics. Bluetooth comes off-the-shelf and enables turn-by-turn navigation on the digital cluster.
Currently there is now pricing available for the U.S. market but orientating at the 2020 S 1000 R, the new roadster will be around the same price of $ 14,995 RRP.
