Powered by an updated 1 liter engine, which now delivers 191 hp, 6 hp more than the older S 1000 RR, 2016 BMW S 1000 RR is the most aggressive fully faired motorcycle on offer in the segment. Mated to a 6 speed transmission, new S 1000 RR is also more responsive, thanks to 100% electromotive throttle actuator control.
Equipment list includes ABS and Automatic Stability Control are offered as standard. Customers can specify it with Dynamic Traction Control, Dynamic Damping Control (semi-active suspension) and Ride Modes Pro, heated grips, cruise control, gear shift assist and several other high-performance accessories.
Now in its third generation, 2016 BMW S 1000 RR gets an aerodynamic design with razor sharp flyline in the front. Compared to the earlier versions, the new S 1000 RR’s front asymmetry due to the split face is now reduced, thanks to the repositioning of the headlamps.
At the rear you can see a new silencer with dual flow. This allows the engine to generate more torque at lower rpm. Apart from this, the new silencer has also helped in improving charge cycle.
You have the option to choose from two sets of tyres, one is Pirelli Diabolo Supercorsa and the second set is Continental Conti Race Attack Compound. Front tyre size is 120/70 ZR 17 while rear gets 200/55 ZR 17.
