2016 BMW S1000RR Review

2016 BMW S1000RR on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Welcome to the new Planet Power…

The S 1000 RR revolutionized the supersports class when it first came out in 2009. Now it steps up to the very same challenge. The current S 1000 RR model has been completely revised: BMW Motorrad engineers have entirely revised the bike’s technology, design and fittings. The result: in its origins a genuine Double R, on the road a new supersports machine.

A facelift is not enough.

The RR is the epitome of a superbike – and that applies to its design, too. Now in its third generation, you can instantly see its increased power. The profile is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the volume of the contours and shapes perfectly balanced. From the rear to the front section, every trim component has been redesigned – including the headlamp element, where the symmetry has been given greater emphasis.

Increased output, reduced weight.

The new S 1000 RR has an output of 199 hp – 6 hp more than its predecessor. But it is not just its higher rated output that makes the Double R faster and more agile. Weighing in at 450 lbs incl. ABS and traction control, it is some 8.8 lbs lighter than the previous version. Furthermore, it has a newly designed exhaust system as well as a new engine set-up for increased torque, an improved output curve and many other optimized details.

Consistently revised down to the last detail.

In addition to major changes to design and performance, it is primarily the technical details which allow the S 1000 RR to take such a quantum leap forward. The electronic suspension components DDC and DTC have been given a new set-up, as has the entire suspension. This ensures greatly improved traction as well as better feedback to the rider. Optimized riding is enabled by such features as the Shift Assistant Pro (shifting up and down without clutch) and the e-gas throttle actuator for more precise and direct control. The rider operates these new features via the newly designed instrument panel which can be adapted to the specific type of use.

All in all: a new S 1000 RR.

In taking the S 1000 RR a step further for model year 2015, absolutely every component was re-assessed. The result is a superbike what will once again set the benchmark in its class – in other words a genuine Double R.

 



2016 BMW S1000RR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The current S 1000 RR has been completely revised: BMW Motorrad engineers have entirely reconceived the bike’s technology, design and fittings. The result: in its DNA, a genuine Double R; on the road, a new supersports machine.

Not all of what is new in the Double R is instantly visible – many of the innovative details are concealed beneath its exterior. Find out here about the expertise that went into enhancing the technical excellence.

 

 

2016 BMW S1000RR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine.

MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER BEFORE.

The new engine now delivers an impressive 199 hp; 6 hp more than in the predecessor model. In addition, the maximum torque range has been increased to 10,500 rpm. The throttle valves are electronically controlled using the new electromotive throttle actuator technology. Other improvements have been made to the mapping, cylinder head and the intake tube geometry.

 


Exhaust system.

OPTIMIZED FOR RIDER AND FORWARD PROPULSION.

The new rear silencer with dual flow results in increased torque within the lower engine speed range as well as an improvement in the charge cycle. This also reduces exhaust gas back pressure for increased power. All in all the new exhaust system without the front silencer reduces the bike’s weight by 6.6 lbs.


Forged wheels.

FULL CONTACT TIRES.

Tires are the only point of contact between the asphalt and the motorcycle. For this reason, aluminium HP forged wheels (optional) are available for the new S 1000 RR. They weigh 5.2 lbs less than the standard wheels of the previous model and improve handling.

There are two tire options:
Pirelli Diabolo Supercorsa SP C 120/70 ZR 17 at the front and Diabolo Supercorsa SP 200/55 ZR 17 at the rear. Or: Continental Conti Race Attack Compound 120/70 ZR 17 at the front and Conti Race Attack Compound 200/55 ZR 17 at the rear.

Traction control (DTC) has been adjusted accordingly so as to ensure that the tires are able to convert full performance into forward propulsion.


Design.

MORE THAN A FACELIFT.

The RR is the epitome of a superbike – including its design. Now in its third generation, the styling reflects its increased power.

The profile is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the many contours perfectly balanced. Each and every trim component has been redesigned from the front to the rear.

The headlamp element is more balanced than the predecessor. The symmetry of the split face has been enhanced and the lamp positions modified. The result is a lighter, clearer and more dynamic look.

The new engine spoiler is longer, thereby underscoring the dynamic lines of the design as a whole. This also applies to the new windshield and the new rear section.

 


Electronic throttle control.

FINGERTIP CONTROL.

In contrast to its predecessor, the 2015 S 1000 RR has been converted to 100% electromotive throttle control. The electronic control of the fuel feed means that the relevant throttle valves are operated much more directly This ride-by-wire system gives the rider more accelerator input and release control. What is more, operating the accelerator is physically easier with no mechanical transmission.

 


Riding modes.

FOR EVERY ROUTE, FOR EVERY RIDER.

The riding modes Rain, Sport and Race with ABS and ASC come as standard on the new S 1000 RR. The Slick and User modes are new optional extras.

With the latter modes, the rider can define various DDC and DTC settings to allow two different suspension set-ups to be evaluated during travel at the press of a button.

 


Damping Control (DDC).

SET-UP IN MILLISECONDS.

Dynamic Damping Control (or DDC for short) is an electronic control unit which adjusts the suspension automatically to the given situation. At intervals of 10 milliseconds the DDC control unit processes a wealth of information such as traction, banking and damper feedback.

From the rider’s point of view, this means that the RR has the optimum set-up for damper compression and rebound at all times. So compromises in the suspension settings are now a thing of the past.

 


Display.

MORE AT A GLANCE.

With its exceptionally high resolution, the instrument panel of the new S 1000 RR provides an even clearer display of selected settings along with road speed and engine speed.

These are some of the information items and functions which can be read and set by the rider: set-up for DDC and race track, banking, DTC, lap time and lap distance, lap-specific speed, active riding mode, gear changes per lap and much more.

 


Shift assistant pro.

CHANGE GEARS LIKE THE PROS.

This is a feature racing riders know and love: the Shift Assistant Pro enables the rider to shift up and down without using the clutch.

This option provides numerous benefits: riders can leave their hand on the hand grip when shifting gears and braking, as it is not required to activate the clutch, there is considerably less load change impact on the rear wheel so it retains better directional stability; shift time is reduced.

 


Suspension.

INCREASED AGILITY AND TRACTION.

A steeper steering angle, longer wheelbase, lower swing arm rotation center, shorter fork protrusion, wider handlebars and a lighter rear section: the suspension of the S 1000 RR has been optimized in many ways.

The new suspension geometry provides a much improved feel for the front. It was also possible to achieve increased agility, lighter-footed handling, increased mechanical grip on the rear wheel and more rear-wheel feedback.

Here is a summary of improvements: steering angle increased from 66° to 66.5°, swing arm rotation center lowered slightly, wheelbase extended by 0.4 inches to 56.1 inches, castor shortened to 3.8 inches, fork protrusion shortened by 0.25 inches, spring struts extended by approx. 1.5 inches, handlebars widened slightly.
