The BMW S 1000 RR.
The RR led to a revolution in the sport superbikes category right from the outset. Thereafter the bike continued to be developed, its tried and tested concept being honed even further and the latest technology added. One constant factor remained throughout however - the RR's impressive power curve and, in terms of performance, it is still a trailblazer today.
Now the S 1000 RR comes with DTC Dynamic Traction Control as standard for even greater driving dynamics and road safety. As a result the S 1000 RR remains a thoroughbred among sport bikes – whether on the road or on the racing circuit. And its innovative technology allows you to experience its performance with greater intensity and immediacy than ever.
The design of the S 1000 RR
Choose your style.
Breathtaking appearance, pure performance or pure-blooded racing sport: it's up to you. The S 1000 RR is available in three colour variants: granite grey metallic / black storm metallic, racing red one / light white one and light white one / lupin blue metallic / racing red one.
The look of a winner. Or a high-performer. Or a fighter.
Four-cylinder in-line engine
Winning statistics. Almighty performance.
Winning statistics. Almighty performance.
The liquid-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine in the S 1000 RR is capable of 146 kW (199 hp) at 13,5000 rpm and a maximum torque of 113 Nm at 10,500 rpm. Impressive statistics that are palpable to its riders. Yet even with this level of performance, the standard DTC Dynamic Traction Control ensures significantly greater safety.

Numerous details enable you to experience the performance of the S 1000 RR even more intensively and maintain an even better overview in all traffic situations. The three driving modes "Rain", "Sport" and "Race" ensure optimal coordination of electric throttle, ABS and ASC, even in differing conditions. The DTC Dynamic Traction Control and ABS, both of which now come as standard, ensure even greater safety too. Electric throttle enables the bike's immense power to be dispensed even more finely and directly.
With its exceptionally high resolution, the instrument panel provides a clear display of the selected settings along with road speed and engine speed. As a result you have an optimal overview of the RR's performance and of your settings at all times.
Exhaust system: optimised for rider and forward propulsion.The 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. The new EU-4-standard and noise standard are met without any losses in performance.
Damping control (DDC): setup in milliseconds.The DDC (Dynamic Damping Control) adjusts the electronic chassis optimally to the riding situation within milliseconds. At intervals of 10 milliseconds the DDC control unit processes a wealth of information such as traction, banking and damper feedback. For you as a rider, this means 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.
Traction control (DTC): perfect adjustment even in tilted position.DTC (Dynamic Traction Control), which now comes as standard, makes a significant contribution to a high level of driving dynamics and outstanding road safety. Particularly under changing driving conditions, on surfaces with low levels of adhesion and in case of sudden leaps in friction coefficients, DTC Dynamic Traction Control provides invaluable assistance. Rear wheelspin is detected via the ABS sensors and the angular rate sensor, adjusting the engine control system for the best possible traction. DTC also detects banking and takes this into account during regulation. The DTC has the optimal setting for the currently selected riding mode. In connection with the Pro riding mode, DTC +/- shift enables an individual adjustment of the traction control to different grip conditions DTC is individually combined with each of the different riding modes, thereby ensuring maximum driving safety at all times.
Chassis: agility and traction perfected.With the ideal combination of steering angle of 66.5°, 1,438 mm wheelbase, and swing-arm pivot point, the optimal combination of agility and directional stability is achieved. The chassis of the S 1000 RR is also aligned to pure riding performance. The suspension geometry provides the rider with an excellent feeling for the front area. The high level of agility, easy handling, mechanical grip on the rear wheel and feedback on the rear wheel's limit range just underline the intensive riding experience of the S 1000 RR.
Pro shift assistant: gear changing from racing sport.Pro Shift Assistant is a feature known and loved by racers. With blipper function it enables shifting gears up or down simpler without clutch. Meaning you always have the handlebars firmly in your grip. In addition load change influence on the rear wheel is considerably reduced, leading to better lane retention. And last but not least, Pro shift assistant also reduces shifting time. You'll learn to love it – and not just when you're within the limits.
Forget wheels: from the race circuit to the road.Tyres and wheels are defining for contact with the road surface. Best suited for it: the HP forget wheels are available as an optional accessory and come with a vehicle type approval. The dimensions are: SP C 120/70 ZR 17 at the front and SP 200/55 ZR 17 at the rear. Needless to say the now standard dynamic traction control (DTC) is precisely aligned to the tyre dimension so that they perform as optimally as possible during forward propulsion.
Riding modes/ riding mode Pro: for every route, for every riderThe riding modes Rain, Sport and Race with ABS come as standard in the new S 1000 RR. "Slick" and "User" mode can also be added as a Pro riding mode optional accessory. The User mode allows you to set a different DDC setting than in the stick mode. This way, you can select and test out two "chassis settings" while riding at the press of a button.
Display: more at a glance.The instrument panel of the S 1000 RR provides a clear display of selected settings along with road speed and engine speed with exceptionally high resolution for precise and fast information. In doing so, you can also show the following values and functions among others: setup for DDC and race track, tilted position, DTC reduction, lap timer and the ABS delay in m/s².
On the Isle of Man with the S 1000 RR
BMW Motorrad and Michael Dunlop, from Northern Ireland, have repeated history, echoing Georg “Schorsch” Meier’s legendary Senior TT victory of 1939 on the Isle of Man. Now, 75 years later, a BMW has once again been triumphant at the most prestigious of all races on the Isle of Man. Dunlop was victorious at the Senior TT 2014. This was his third victory with a BMW motorcycle this week. Before that, Dunlop had already won the Isle of Man TT Superbike and Superstock races on the BMW S 1000 RR. In an exciting and thrilling Senior TT, the triumph now also went to Dunlop.
