The BMW S 1000 R
The air is filled with the smell of petrol. An engine revs up. Pure power unfolds. Showtime for the BMW S 1000 R. Dynamic Roadster outside, Superbike DNA inside. The chassis and engine carry the genes of the RR. Ultra agile, ultra precise. 165 hp from 194 kilograms. Even more sophisticated, even more aggressive. For the first time with the optional M package including M colours and M carbon wheels. Ready for the ultimate challenge. #NeverStopChallenging.
It’s not just about power. It’s also about perfect control. The S 1000 R combines both.»

Dynamics at its best
The weight? No contest. Including M package, it is optimised down to the last gram – from 194 kg. Even when fully equipped and with a full tank, it remains under 200 kg.
Butterflies in the tummy
The engine of the S 1000 R comes directly from the super sports bike.»

Brachial right up to the limit position
And the drivetrain? Goes right up to the limit. Races straight off from neutral. Let’s off a superbike firework all the way up to its maximum 12,000 rpm. Remains controllable at all times thanks to three lean angle-dependent riding modes. Not enough? The optional Pro riding modes give full control over all control systems.
Hearts are racing
Dress code: rigorous
The look? Doesn’t hide. It’s the embodiment of challenge. Wind? Come here! The world is a stage, time to perform.
This letter is fascinating. Combines racing, power and enthusiasm. And now, with the S 1000 R, it’s getting your pulse racing. The M forged wheels or M carbon wheels, the M lightweight battery and the M endurance chain make the racing know-how tangible.
The bike? Doesn’t need a nickname. Because there is no escape. Minimal front, aggressive rear. Pure dynamics in typical roadster proportions. With an R in the side fairing. Burnt in like a scar that tells a story – ready for the next chapter.
In the eye of the storm
The sitting position? On the attack. But everything is under control. Thanks to the enlarged steering angle, dual-adjustable handlebar clamp and three different seat heights. As versatile and precise as ever.
Spoilt for choice
Spoilt for choice

Available for the first time with the exclusive M package including M colours and M forged wheels or M carbon wheels.
