What is the BMW S 1000 XR?

XR: a cross between an adventure bike and a sport bike.

Here’s the perfect BMW motorcycle for those who want the dynamic performance of a sport machine, the versatility of an adventure bike and the comfort of a touring motorcycle. The new S 1000 XR combines the very best of these worlds to create something completely new: the first ever adventure-sport bike made by BMW Motorrad; perfect for everyone in search of a sporty ride that knows no bounds.

Hot fusion. The design.

The S 1000 XR is exceptional – and that’s exactly what it looks like. As a synthesis of sport and adventure it unites the power of the S 1000 R with the upright seating position of the GS. No matter where you go on the XR, all eyes will be on you.

The best of both worlds: the technology.

As a cross between an adventure bike and a sport bike, the S 1000 XR draws on the full range of experience BMW Motorrad has in these categories. The sport engine of the S 1000 R with its 160 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and 83 lb-ft of torque at 9,250 rpm is combined with the seating concept of the GS series to create a motorcycle that is at home on every road.

Absolutely unique: fittings and accessories.

As an adventure-sport bike, the S 1000 XR is highly versatile by its very nature, and can be perfectly adapted to the rider’s individual preferences with optional extras. The HP Shift Assistant Pro minimizes clutch use between setting off and stopping, making every gear shift faster and easier. Electronic suspension control via Dynamic ESA ensures optimum suspension performance. And those who want to get the very most out of their bike will opt for the Pro riding modes – available from BMW Motorrad for the first time – with two highly dynamic set-ups, plus ABS Pro for maximum braking safety in the curves.

The exceptional S 1000 XR concept combines two entirely distinct types of motorcycles for the first time. Experience it for yourself: the S 1000 XR is looking forward to a test ride with you.
