Welcome to the new Planet Power… The S 1000 RR revolutionized the supersports class when it first came out in 2009. Now it steps up to the very same challenge. The current S 1000 RR model has been completely revised: BMW Motorrad engineers have entirely revised the bike’s technology, design and fittings. The result: in its origins a genuine Double R, on the road a new supersports machine. A facelift is not enough. The RR is the epitome of a superbike – and that applies to its design, too. Now in its third generation, you can instantly see its increased power. The profile is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the volume of the contours and shapes perfectly balanced. From the rear to the front section, every trim component has been redesigned – including the headlamp element, where the symmetry has been given greater emphasis. Increased output, reduced weight. The new S 1000 RR has an output of 199 hp – 6 hp more than its predecessor. But it is not just its higher rated output that makes the Double R faster and more agile. Weighing in at 450 lbs incl. ABS and traction control, it is some 8.8 lbs lighter than the previous version. Furthermore, it has a newly designed exhaust system as well as a new engine set-up for increased torque, an improved output curve and many other optimized details.
