The claimed 456-pound S1000R comes with two riding modes (Rain and Road), Automatic Stability Control and BMW Motorrad Race ABS standard. Dynamic Traction Control with lean angle sensor is optional, as is a Pro Mode which includes two additional riding modes, Dynamic and Dynamic Pro, suited for both road and track use.
The S1000R uses an aluminum alloy perimeter frame and the 32-degree, forward inclined engine is a load-bearing member of the set-up. The 46mm front fork allows for compression and rebound adjustments and if equipped with the optional Dynamic Damping Control (DDC), spring preload can be adjusted as well. The central spring out back comes with adjustable preload and compression damping. Alterations to the rake, trail and wheelbase promise to optimize handling and stability.
Front braking is handled by two radial-mount, four-piston calipers gripping twin 320mm discs. The rear stopper is a single piston floating caliper that bites a 220mm disc. Steel-mesh wrapped brake lines connect both front and rear to the controls.
The instrument cluster features a gear position indicator, analog tachometer, ride mode information, speedometer, engine temperature, fuel level, fuel consumption, shift indicator light and more.
Design features have been stripped down for the naked bike, though it retains some hallmarks of the S1000RR. Asymmetrical headlights and a large central air intake are some features the company press highlights as sourced from the superbike.
The S1000R has a 32-inch seat height, wide tapered handlebars and foot pegs mounted to provide riders with a more relaxed upper body posture. The S1000R will be available in Racing red non-metallic, Frozen dark blue metallic and Light white non-metallic colorways. There’s no indication yet of price or availability.
