Uncompromising Dynamics.

Is your heartbeat connected directly to the tachometer? Then the S 1000 R is the Motorbike for you. Stripped down to the essentials but maximising pure riding pleasure its aggressive engine with its 121 kW (165 hp) will put a smile on your face every time it revs up. The rich sound of the new standard HP titanium rear silencer leaves no doubt: that's how life in the fast lane should sound.  

Adrenaline on Two Wheels. 

Some call it naked, we just call it concentrating on the essentials. The genes of its sister, the S 1000 RR, are quite clear: an aggressive tail-up/nose-down design, a distinctive split-face and characteristic gills. The greatly reduced side trim panel and precise colouring make it clear: the power delivery isn't the only thing here that's pure and uncompromising.
