2016 BMW S 1000 RR
If you are a fan of the previous versions of the BMW S 1000 RR model you may want to look away as the 2016 BMW S 1000 RR has been given a true revision. The mapping, cylinder head, intake tube geometry, maximum torque, throttle actuator and engine power have taken the bulk of the revisions. The new engine now delivers 199 hp; 6 hp more power than before. BMW personnel have added a new rear silencer with dual flow onto the exhaust system which among other positive notes helps reduce the overall weight brtyy more than six pounds. The 2016 BMW S 1000 RR model has also been given the Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) for optimal suspension. The Shift Assistant Pro allows you to shift without using the clutch. Keeping the weight down, BMW has opted to use forged wheels that also improve handling. You can even choose your tires from either the Pirelli Diabolo Supercorsa SP C’s or the Continental Conti Race Attack Compound tires.
