2019 S 1000 RR
THE BMW S 1000 RR
THE SUPERBIKE REDEFINED.
Always pushing to the limit and in search of the ideal line? You've now got 152 kW (207 HP) of unbridled power to push your RR to the max. With a maximum torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm and a torque curve of at least 100 Nm over a range of 5,500 to 14,500 [rpm], it's time to unleash pure performance. Ten years after the first generation of the RR first mesmerized the world of motorcycles, we're now entering the next level of performance. We have revised almost every component of the RR - the result: less weight and noticeably higher performance. Are you ready for the pole position and victory? The RR awaits you.
Designed for pole position.
Lay eyes on this bike and you are immediately aware: This is a serious high performance motorcycle. Every part of the RR has been designed for maximum performance. The frame layout with its new suspension technology makes the RR lighter and more precise. In addition, the ergonomically perfected seating position is unrivalled thanks to the modified frame and fairing design. The standard LED headlights give the bike an absolutely dynamic and aggressive look. The front indicators have wandered from the fairing to the rearview mirrors, which not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but also provides improved visibility. Seen from the rear, the RR dominates in terms of design and functionality: "All-in-one" is the motto here. In addition to number plate lighting, the number plate holder now also includes LED turn signals, tail lights and brake lights.
Ready for the circuit.
When it comes to top performance, the RR is your perfect partner. Not just on the road, but also on the circuit. In a few simple steps, you can dismantle both the rearview mirror and the number plate holder to transform your racing bike.
The optionally available M Package turns your RR into the ultimate racing machine. The weight is reduced by around 3.5 kg down to a mere 193.5 kg. In addition to the Motorsport finish, the M carbon wheels, the M battery, the M seat, the M tail rising and the M swing arm pivot you also receive Pro riding modes with the configurable riding modes Race Pro 1-3 and electronic assistance systems, such as DTC +/- Shift, ABS Settings, engine mappings, wheelie control and slide control and a whole lot more.
Four cylinders and unrivalled performance.
The newly designed, four-cylinder engine is the new RR power train. Not only was the peak output increased to 152 kW (207 HP) at 13,500 rpm, but the torque curve was also optimized. And thanks to the new BMW ShiftCam technology, which selects the valve opening time and the valve lift by means of camshaft, even in low and medium engine speed ranges significantly more torque and power is applied.
In addition, numerous other components were adapted to further optimize weight, space and design. These include a new timing concept, hollow-drilled titanium intake valves and an improved and self-reinforcing multi-disc, anti-hopping wet clutch (-20N). The engine is now 4 kg lighter and narrower, which improves both the handling and the ergonomics. You will notice this immediately when you first get on.
Technology made for maximum performance in every situation.
The RR is a technical high-flyer with road grip: The four standard modes RAIN, ROAD, DYNAMIC and RACE already cover numerous riding styles in a variety of conditions. Pro mode as a special accessory lays the racing world at your feet with the three additional modes RACE Pro 1, RACE Pro 2 and RACE Pro 3, with Launch Control, Pitlane Limiter, HSC Pro (Hill Start Control Pro) and DBC (Dynamic Brake Control). With the multi-controller you can configure the following settings via the full-colour 6.5" TFT display: the throttle response incl. engine characteristics, the engine braking torque, the traction control (DTC) incl. wheelie control, ABS and DDC (Dynamic Damping Control). And with the push of a button you can adjust the settings while riding via DTC +/- Shift. Thanks to the latest 6-axis sensor technology and torque precontrol, DTC support is particularly smooth and powerful. The procedure takes place no matter the gear, speed and inclination.
With the next-generation DTC, you get more efficient, powerful and safer traction control and thus even more forward momentum.
More stability and better force application.
The new RR has, as the only street-legal standard superbike, an aluminium undercarriage, which had previously only been used on the racing scene. The 0.3 kg less weight significantly reduces the unsprung mass and results in significantly less reaction from the chassis when accelerating. In addition, the shock absorber, which can be adjusted in terms of tension and rebound as well as the suspension, is installed farther away from the engine and is thus less exposed to heat. This has significant advantages for the shock absorber. By changing the strut ratio from 1.9:1 to 1.65:1 and having a larger damper piston, a smaller spring rate was able to be selected. This friction minimization increases comfort and performance since the power build-up in the strut occurs quickly and accurately. The entire system is thus much gentler on the tires.
Perfect damping on all routes.
With the special accessory Dynamic Damping Control (DDC), the control philosophy of the electronic chassis as well as the mechanical damping component were newly developed. Regardless of whether you're on a country road or the circuit - the electronic valve always provides the maximum damping, depending on the riding mode and purpose. It is now parallel to the mechanical valve. If necessary, the damping is reduced or increased in 10 ms via this bypass line. The newly anodized floating piston rod is extremely sensitive. If required, the Shim Package can also be adapted by chassis specialists.
The fork is also controlled by means of a linear position sensor with DDC. Damping is regulated here globally and in traction and compression stages. The suspension can be manually varied as needed.

BMW ShiftCam technology: a combination of optimized torque and top-end performance.
Already when you first accelerate you notice immediately: this bike's excellent torque curve is captivating even at low and middle speeds. This is mainly thanks to the BMW ShiftCam technology. Here the intake valves are controlled as needed by means of a control camshaft. Depending on the speed, the valve opening time and valve lift are adjusted to ensure the best performance for you and your RR.
ABS and ABS Pro: from maximum stability to the highest possible performance.
The RR has ABS and ABS Pro, depending on your riding mode: RAIN, ROAD, DYNAMIC, RACE or RACE Pro-1 to 3. So you decide whether your bike needs the maximum stability or the highest possible performance.
Switch Assistant Pro: switch gears in milliseconds with maximum stability and performance.
On the road or on the circuit: This feature is a must. Because with the standard feature Shift Assistant Pro with blipper function you switch gears without pressing the clutch up and down. So you can fully concentrate on the road. At the same time, the load-bearing influences on the body and rear wheel have been reduced to a minimum. The result: You're faster, more stable and can enjoy even higher performance and more riding pleasure.
Completely newly developed Dynamic Damping Control (DDC): perfect damping for country roads and the circuit at all times.
The RR comes optionally equipped with the next generation DDC. Now the electronic valve is parallel to the mechanical valve. If necessary, the damping is reduced or increased in 10 ms via this bypass line. For the motorway or the circuit, you can always rely on perfect damping. The suspension spring can also be adjusted manually.
Lighting design: LED, visible, dynamic, aggressive.
The standard LED headlights give the RR its new unmistakable sporty-aggressive look. This applies not only to the front headlights, which have been moved from the trimming to the rearview mirror in the new RR, but also for the tail, where the turn signal, brake and tail light are combined in one component.
6.5" TFT display: everything in sight - and under control.
The benchmark in the superbike segment: the TFT display of the RR. With 6.5" you have the perfect overview. You can choose between the Pure Ride screen that's reduced to the essentials or one of three Core Ride screens that display other important information. Everything under control with the multi-controller: Simply scroll through the menu of your 6.5" TFT display and access the various functions and settings - without taking your hands off the handlebar. So you stay in full control of it all.
Ergonomics: more comfort, support and freedom of movement.
Not only is the new RR a lot lighter at a mere 197 kg, it's also got the perfect ergonomics. The frame, tank, seat, tail and footpegs have all been modified for more support, freedom of movement, more feedback and better knee closure. The interplay of the over-milled footpegs and the new handlebar ergonomics with the M seat, in addition to even more feedback, offers you a tireless ride and lets you ride longer and concentrate on achieving faster lap times.
Strut and swing arm: Performance, sensitivity and adjustability – everything for your personal victory.
The new RR is equipped with an aluminium swing arm and offers you better power distribution and less reaction from the chassis when accelerating like in motorsports. That saves the tyres. The standard shock absorber of the new RR is now further away from the engine and is therefore less exposed to heat. In addition, a larger damper piston was installed. This results in a constant degree of damping in all riding situations.
Standard seat and special equipment: always firmly in the saddle.
You immediately notice when you look at the standard seat that perfect feedback was the aim. This allows not only more freedom of movement, but also the perfect amount of contact with the motorcycle while riding. The standard seat height is 824 mm and the step arch is 1,829 mm. In addition to the standard seat, there's also the optional M seat for the new RR. Its slip-resistant cover and harder foam save power when accelerating or braking hard, and bring more stability to the bike. The M seat is part of the M Package. It is available in three seat heights (814 mm, 824 mm and 849 mm) as a special accessory.
Number plate holder: everything all in one and easily dismantled.
It's so fast to convert your RR from a cruising bike to a racing machine: the tail light integrated into the LED turn signals and the number plate light are both attached to the number plate holder unit. The big advantage here is that in just a few simple steps you can remove the number plate holder and lighting and be ready for the circuit in best time.
4 standard riding modes / Race Pro 1-3 riding mode: a question of attitude.
Four riding modes are standard with the RR: RAIN, ROAD, DYNAMIC and RACE. All four are perfectly tailored to the respective conditions and provide more performance or more stability and safety, as desired. Racers, in particular, get their money's worth with the special accessory Pro riding mode. The included RACE Pro 1, RACE Pro 2 and RACE Pro 3 modes can be individually adapted to Engine (throttle), Engine Brake, Traction Control (DTC), Wheelie-Control (DTC), ABS and ABS Pro - so that you can achieve the best possible performance on every circuit.
