2016 BMW S 1000 R Premium Light WhiteConquer the roads - on the BMW S 1000 R.
A roadster, reduced to the essentials: maximum performance. 160 bhp, 83 lb/ft torque and a power-to-weight ratio of 2.85 pounds per bhp - and the competition disappears in the rear mirror.Linear power: the engine.
The high-performance 4-cylinder in-line engine derives from the RR but has now been further optimized. The result: extremely linear torque delivery for constant forward drive across the entire engine rev range. The engine of the S 1000 R has an output of 160 bhp/118 kW at 11,000 rpm, while a maximum of 83 lb/ft torque at 9,250 rpm puts a smile on the riders face at every twist of the throttle.Ready for attack: the design.
The lines of the S 1000 R are striking at first sight, too: aggressive tail-up/nose-down design, distinctive split face and the characteristic gills. The R shows much less of its sharp-edged, muscular skin. Some people call it naked - we just call it focused on the essentials.Versatile: the riding modes.
The S 1000 R can be reined in and unleashed at the press of a button as standard. The Rain mode provides a gentle throttle response, with ABS and ASC adapted to wet road surfaces. Meanwhile Road optimizes throttle response, ABS and ASC for dry asphalt. The Pro modes are available as an optional extra for those chasing the threshold range: Dynamic and Dynamic Pro get the R into shape for the limits.Full control: Race ABS and ASC as standard.
Power is nothing without control. The S 1000 R is fitted with Race ABS and ASC (automatic stability control) as standard. This duo ensures excellent acceleration and deceleration figures at threshold level. They can be activated and deactivated during travel, making for uninterrupted riding fun.No compromises: the individualization options.
The Standard package adds Ride Modes Pro (Rain, Road + Dynamic, Dynamic Pro), gear shift assist, DTC (dynamic traction control) and cruise control. The Premium package includes all equipment in the Standard package plus DDC (dynamic damping control semi-active suspension), heated grips and engine spoiler. There will also be an extensive range of HP parts for the S 1000 R aimed at ambitious riders.Features may include:
- Gear Shift Assistant
Evolved from motorcycle racing technology, Gear Shift Assist enables up-shifting at almost any rpm without using the clutch or having to close the throttle. The twist grip remains open during acceleration and the time taken to shift gear is reduced to a minimum.
- DTC (Dynamic Traction Control)
The BMW DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) system continuously monitors rear wheel traction under acceleration. If a loss of traction is detected, the system intervenes to control unwanted rear wheel spin. The DTC system is unique since it incorporates information from a lean angle sensor to optimize the system’s performance, especially when the motorcycle is banked into a turn.
- DDC (Dynamic Damping Control)
Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) is a world first in serial motorcycle production. The DDC responds automatically to driving maneuvers such as braking, accelerating or cornering and thus ensures perfect road contact. The DDC setup menu allows the rider to select one of three basic settings, Comfort, Normal and Sport. These provide the rider the best possible damping coordination in all driving situations by processing both long and short-frequency road impact, thereby facilitating maximum traction and safety.
