BMW S 1000

BMW S 1000 was launched in 2009 globally with its revised model coming in 2011. The new S Series has no change in its engine but some of the other specifications are changed.

BMW has improved ridability of this new bike by boosting thrust and making changes in power and torque curves. There are some changes in suspension of bike also : the upside down fork and the spring strut feature a new internal structure and the geometry has been modified with new values for the steering head angle, offset, position of the swing arm pivot, fork projection, and spring strut length. The engine speed display has been redesigned for better readability.

As for design elements, the S 1000 RR gets a considerably leaner look: changes have been made to the asymmetrical side panels, and the centre airbox cover now sports side aperture grilles.
Color line-up includes: a combination of Racing red and Alpine white and new Sapphire black metallic.
