The new BMW S 1000 RR – the virtually perfect supersports model has been further optimised.
Ever since BMW Motorrad launched the S 1000 RR in 2009, the first 4-cylinder supersports bike made by BMW, the “Double R” has had a lasting impact on this market segment. Consistent and ongoing development has since ensured that the RR occupies pole position among the superbikes with road traffic certification. For the model year 2017 it was once again possible to optimise the virtually perfect supersports bike even further.
Potent in-line 4-cylinder engine, adapted to EU4 requirements.
The 999 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine has been adapted to meet the requirements of the EU4 pollutant class. The peak output is still 146 kW (199 hp) at 13 500 rpm and the maximum torque of 113 Nm is reached at 10 500 rpm. In the interests of excellent ridability, the new RR also has a wide engine speed range available for use, and almost the entire maximum torque is available from approximately 9 500 (112 Nm) to 12 000 rpm (113 Nm).
Riding modes “Rain”, “Sport” and “Race” along with Race ABS and Dynamic Traction Control as standard.
The new RR features the three riding modes “Rain”, “Sport” and “Race” as standard as well as the partial integral Race ABS. New additions to the standard trim include Dynamic Traction control DTC with banking sensor and fine adjustment at +/- seven levels for the best possible performance and safety when accelerating.
Optional equipment item “Riding Modes Pro” with additional riding modes “Slick” and “User”, Launch Control, Pit Lane Limiter and now also ABS Pro.
With the optional equipment item “Riding Modes Pro”, the new RR offers the two additional riding modes “Slick” and “User” as before, as well a Launch Control for active support on racing starts, among other things. A configurable Pit Lane Limiter also enables adherence to the prescribed speed in the pit lane.
ABS Pro is a new component of the optional equipment item “Riding Modes Pro”. While the existing BMW Motorrad ABS systems already provide a very high degree of safety when braking in a straight line, ABS Pro now takes this a step further to offer increased safety when braking on bends as well. Here, ABS Pro (available in the modes “Rain”, “Sport” and “Race”) is able to prevent the wheels from locking even when the brakes are applied quickly; this reduces abrupt changes in steering force on shock-braking manoeuvres and stops the motorcycle from rearing up unintentionally.
The new RR now as a single-seater with passenger seat cover and attractive new colours.
From now on, the new S 1000 RR is configured as standard as a single-seater with passenger seat cover. However, an ex works option allows the RR to be ordered with a passenger package free of charge: this includes both passenger seat and passenger footrests.
The RR continues to be available in the colour schemes Racing Red non-metallic/Lightwhite non-metallic for the dynamic look and BMW Motorsport (Lupine Blue metallic/Lightwhite non-metallic/Racing Red non-metallic in reference to the bike’s motor racing genes), although in a new configuration. The two colour concepts are supplemented as standard with red rim lines.
In addition there is the new colour scheme Granite Grey metallic/Blackstorm metallic, which gives the RR a refined appearance.

The RR led to a revolution in the sport superbikes category right from the outset. Thereafter the bike continued to be developed, its tried and tested concept being honed even further and the latest technology added. One constant factor remained throughout however - the RR's impressive power curve and, in terms of performance, it is still a trailblazer today. Now the S 1000 RR comes with DTC Dynamic Traction Control as standard for even greater driving dynamics and road safety. As a result the S 1000 RR remains a thoroughbred among sport bikes – whether on the road or on the racing circuit. And its innovative technology allows you to experience its performance with greater intensity and immediacy than ever.
