2020 BMW S1000R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The 2020 BMW S 1000 R – the dynamic roadster in significantly enhanced form. In the autumn of 2013, BMW Motorrad launched a dynamic roadster based on the supersport bike S 1000 RR: the S 1000 R. With its well-conceived overall concept of high performance, low weight Race ABS, ASC and ride modes as standard, it set a new benchmark in the dynamic roadster segment. Since then, the S 1000 R has attracted numerous fans with its fascinating blend of emotional roadster looks and supersport riding dynamics. BMW Motorrad has now enhanced the innovative naked bike in a variety of ways.

EU4-compliant 4-cylinder with higher performance, lower weight and HP titanium rear silencer for an even more potent sound and a sporty look. The 2020 S 1000 R features the well-proven 999 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine. Having been adapted to meet all EU4 requirements, it now has an output of 121 kW (165 hp) at 11,000 rpm (previously: 118 kW (160 hp) at 11,000 rpm), 3 kW (5 hp) higher than before, and weighs 4 lbs (2 kg) less (previously 456 lbs (207 kg) DIN unladen weight, now 451 lbs (205 kg) DIN unladen weight). The permitted gross weight is still 897 lbs (407 kg), which means an increase in payload of 4 lbs (two kilograms).

Further development of the engine has included an optimized intake and exhaust sound. In conjunction with the standard HP titanium rear silencer, The 2020 S 1000 R now produces an even more potent sound while still adhering to the ECE registration directive R41-04.

ASC, partially integral Race ABS and two ride modes as standard. Optional “Ride Modes Pro” with DTC and two additional “Dynamic” and “User” ride modes, now includes ABS Pro, Launch Control, and Pit Lane Limiter as additional features. For optimum adaptation to the rider’s personal preferences and area of use, The 2020 S 1000 R now provides two riding modes as well as ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as standard features. With the riding modes “Rain” and “Road”, the S 1000 R offers adaptable power and torque delivery relative to Race ABS and ASC on road surface conditions. This is a significant safety bonus when riding on variable road surfaces.

Dynamic Traction Control DTC continues to be available as a factory option. Among other things, DTC features the banking sensor familiar from the RR, offering the highest series-production level of technology currently available for increased riding safety and dynamic performance.

A new feature now included in the “Ride Modes Pro” option with its two additional riding modes “Dynamic” and The 2020, configurable “User” mode is ABS Pro, which operates in relation to banking angle. While the existing BMW Motorrad ABS systems already provide a very high degree of safety when braking in a straight line, ABS Pro offers increased safety when braking on bends. In this way, the wheels can be prevented from locking. It reduces abrupt changes in steering force on shock-braking maneuvers and prevents the motorcycle from rearing up unintentionally.

The enormous performance spectrum of the “Ride Modes Pro” option is rounded off with a new Launch Control feature for active rider support on racing starts and a programmable Pit Lane Limiter to ensure that the set speed limits are adhered to in the pit lane.

HP Shift Assist Pro for quick shifting up and down without clutch activation as a factory option. Already available as an option for the RR and the XR, HP Shift Assist Pro is now also available for The 2020 S 1000 R. It enables the rider to shift up through the gears without activating the clutch, thereby allowing perfect acceleration virtually without torque interruption. HP Shift Assist Pro also allows downshifting without using the clutch. As a result, very fast shifting is possible, clutch activation is reduced to a minimum, and any unwanted load change impact on the rear wheel is noticeably diminished.

The 2020 S 1000 R already meets many riders’ preference for a so-called “reverse shifting pattern” for use on the race track, with the first gear at the top and gears two to six going downwards. An additional mount for the shift linkage on the gear lever makes for a very quick changeover here.

New rear frame structure with optimized rigidity and flex as well as lighter main frame rear section for increased traction, greater precision and transparent feedback. The main suspension element of The 2020 S 1000 R is still an aluminum bridge-type frame comprising four individual cast components welded together with the in-line 4-cylinder engine integrated as a load-bearing element. In The 2020 S 1000 R, however, the main frame has now been redesigned and given a new, lighter rear section. As part of this revision, the entire composite structure of the main frame, main frame rear section and swinging arm has been optimized in terms of rigidity and flex to achieve improved traction while at the same time providing greater precision and even more transparent feedback. The rider footrest system, including brake and gear lever, was also redesigned.

Light HP forged wheels and Design Option Wheels as new optional equipment items. For further optimization of The 2020 S 1000 R, BMW Motorrad now offers HP forged wheels as an optional equipment item that enable a weight reduction of 5 lbs. as compared to the standard wheels. The resulting reduction in inertia moment and gyroscopic movement benefits The 2020 S 1000 R in terms of acceleration, deceleration and maneuverability. The optional equipment item Design Option Wheels further underscores the sporty character of The 2020 S 1000 R with a red decorative line which runs around the rim edge of the aluminum cast wheels.

Optimized multifunction instrument cluster with improved readability. Like its predecessor, The 2020 S 1000 R still draws on motor racing elements for its cockpit design. An LCD screen in conjunction with an analog engine speed display allows a wealth of information to be displayed to the rider, from gears to the relevant riding mode and lap time recording. There is also an individually programmable shift indicator on board for optimum gear shifting.

For use in The 2020 S 1000 R, the tilt angle of the instrument cluster has been optimized to achieve improved readability, especially of the upper lines of the LCD screen. An additional Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ensures the EU4 norm is met, and the display has been extended to include the outdoor temperature.

More dynamic design with reduced fairing. While the aspirations of the S 1000 R as a dynamic roadster have been perfectly captured up to now in the “tail up – nose down” principle with a low front section and steeply rising rear, The 2020 S 1000 R nonetheless adopts an even more strikingly dynamic pose.

The 2020 S 1000 R is still instantly and unmistakably recognizable as a face that stands out in a crowd. From the front, the asymmetrical breakdown of the headlamp is the dominating feature along with the large central air inlet, the latter clearly demonstrating that fresh air and the airstream are being converted into forward propulsion and power.

Further stylistic enhancements are evident in the front section and in the side trim parts. Straighter and more sharply designed, while also significantly reduced in size, these give The 2020 S 1000 R an even more athletic and dynamic appearance. The passenger seat pad has also received a fresh look.

Vibration-free handlebars for further increased comfort. Vibration-free handlebars ensure increased comfort in The 2020 S 1000 R. These effectively prevent even the finest vibrations from being passed onto the handlebar ends. The upper fork bridge was also newly designed.

Attractive new color options. The even more dynamic appearance of The 2020 S 1000 R is reflected in a new color concept comprising three color schemes: Racing Red non-metallic/Black Storm metallic, Catalano Grey non-metallic and BMW Motorsport (Light White non-metallic/Lupine Blue metallic/Racing Red non-metallic).

In Racing Red non-metallic/Black Storm metallic The 2020 S 1000 R shows off its sporty, aggressive character, at the same time underscoring its leading position in terms of performance in the dynamic roadster segment.

Catalano Grey non-metallic gives The 2020 S 1000 R a particularly powerful and potent appearance, interpreting the combination of technology and dynamic performance in a strikingly masculine way.

In the traditional BMW Motorsport colors of Light White non-metallic, Lupine Blue metallic and Racing Red non-metallic, The 2020 S 1000 R combines its athletic genes with a dash of distinctive refinement, giving it a light and agile look.

Optional equipment and Original BMW Motorrad Accessories for further individualization. The customary array of BMW Motorrad optional equipment and motorcycle accessories are available for further customization of The 2020 S 1000 R.
