The new 2020 BMW S1000XR – even lighter, even faster and even more versatile.

The new edition of the best-selling Adventure Sport bike is radically lighter and more agile, as well as achieving an unprecedented combination of long-distance performance and sports capabilities.

With a completely newly developed engine and suspension and an unladen weight of 226 kg – 10 kg less than its predecessor when adjusted for equipment – the 2020 BMW S1000XR opens up a whole new dimension in the Adventure Sport segment.

The newly developed in-line 4-cylinder engine is based on the S 1000 RR engine and delivers an output of 121 kW (165 hp) at 11,000 rpm. The maximum torque of 114 Nm is available at 9,250 rpm.

The bike comes with a ton of riding aids like traction control, wheelie control, engine drag torque control (which is basically Motor Slip Regulation), Shift Assist Pro (BMW lingo for quickshifter), hill start assist and a six-axis IMU.

The frame and swinging arm are now 2.1 kg lighter. The new double-sided swinging arm reduces unsprung masses by 1.6 kg, offering a particularly sensitive response. Also features the latest generation of BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) as standard.

Four riding modes along with the latest generation of Dynamic Traction Control DTC and DTC Wheelie function. ABS Pro with DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) for even greater safety when braking in banking position.

S1000XR features a Multifunctional instrument panel with 6.5-inch TFT screen for excellent readability and maximum range of information.
