Full travel comfort with 160 horses power. BMW pushes on the basis of the successful S1000 unit the next model at the start. The new S1000XR is an adventure sport model for BMW. For us, a motorcycle which allows Herb race at the highest level of comfort.
Parts of the report:
The S 1000 XR is a logical step from BMW around the S 1000 RR and the S 1000 R to extend the series to another motorcycle. The RR engine came in at R well with the XR BMW now offers a more comfortable ride but an increased pillion passenger suitability but trotzem a very sporty motorcycle. The engine is substantially similar to the unit in the R and S 1000 provides also here 160 horsepower at 11,000 rev / min and 112 Nm at 9250 gives U / min from. But BMW also scores in S 1000 XR again with a long list of electronic and electromechanical features at a high level.
Here is an overview:
ABS as standard (part integral)
ABS Pro for more braking safety in an inclined position (other manufacturers call it curves ABS)
Traction control ASC Standard - Safety Feature
Dynamic Traction Control DTC with tilt sensor as an extra - Speed Feature
2 Fahrmodis available as standard expandable with dynamic package
On request, with electronically controlled suspension Dynamic ESA
HP Gearshift Assistant Pro allows up and down shifting without a clutch - known from the new S 1000 RR
Many of the features are already known from the new S1000RR. Again in the XR, the customer is facing stark choices. Fun making all features in the XR, which will probably be fixed. In the RR of the new shift assistant inspired us when tested fully. That will probably not be any different in the XR. In practice, the S1000XR comes standard therefore quite nice equipped with ABS and ASC. The buyer of an XR but his mind no clear drivers and so presumably the advantages of the dynamic traction control is offered (finer control behavior even in an inclined position). At the end of the day so most XR models will go almost fully equipped over the counter.
HP Gearshift Assistant Pro - turns a normal gear a high-tech feature
The HP Gearshift Assistant Pro in the S 1000 RR does mislead good (Here the test by shift assistant in detail). We board linearized with 280 to the first corner, closed the throttle and pushed the clutch without touching the gears 4,3,2 inside. During an upshift, we remained fully on gas and also sorted quickly but above all free of load change reactions. Readers from the Tourer Group who have no track experience was, said that such a feature in racing motorcycles for some time will be used. The transmission is by no means an automatic transmission but still a normal transmission only operability was just much easier. In practice, especially those bullies will have the most benefit, which the opinion is not to need it. The faster you drive the more important it is no load change to lie smooth gear changes to get so no disturbance to the chassis. When cozy Thither chugging you will be well on the way even without the new part.
Price and availability BMW S 1000 XR 2015
The BMW S1000XR is available from June 1, 2015. Priced BMW has not made any claims. But it will certainly not be such a bargain deal as the S 1000 R. Because the XR had as the frames are completely redesigned on the S 1000 R could use a lot more parts from the flagship RR. The price depends essentially also depends on how many extras you aufmagaziniert his wish bike.

This we will present again the test of XR.
