2019 BMW S1000RR Rolled on to EICMA Stage

Accompanying former WSB champ Tom Sykes, now a part of a factory-backed WSB squad, BMW rolled the 2019 S1000RR on to the stage at EICMA earlier today. We are awaiting a full press release, which we will post later, but here are the essential details.

With 204 horsepower and 83 foot/pounds of torque, the new S1000RR should combine the best of both worlds, including increased mid-range and a vicious top end rush. This will be courtesy of the variable valve timing provided by the ShiftCam system.

Along with the horsepower increase (close to 10 hp), the new superbike also loses a significant amount of weight, now coming in just under 434 pounds fully fueled.

Expect all the latest, and greatest, electronic aids, including optional semi-active, electronically controlled suspension and a bright TFT display. These features accompany the ubiquitous traction control, wheelie control, adjustable engine braking and selectable riding modes.

Lots of “M” packages will be offered by BMW (the “M” designation borrowed from its automobile sports division) to further increase the performance/reduce the weight of the new S1000RR.

We lack details on pricing and availability at this point, so stay tuned.
