Hot on the heels of the news that a new ‘M’ version of the S 1000 XR is on the way, BMW have also unveiled the latest BMW S 1000 XR with a modest bump in performance (up 4 kW) via modified intakes along with an updated Shift Assistant Pro system.
The shok has also been tuned for a more ‘sensitive’ and comfortable ride according to BMW. A redesigned seat is claimed to offer easier movement and improved ergonomics.
The downside is that seat is lifted 10 mm higher, to 850 mm, and is also longer and wider, which may make for an even more challenging reach to the ground to those caught a bit short down the inseam. A low seat option of 820 mm should take care of them though, or a high option of 870 mm for taller folk, both are available at no extra cost when ordering your bike.
The rear section also runs new side panels now, and air intakes, giving the back of the bike an even sportier aspect. At the front we also see the radiator trim now running a textured surface, while the beak fender is matched to the bike’s paint.
We’re expecting the bikes to arrive from Q1 or 2024 here in Australia and pricing starts at $26,390* for the base model in Black Storm metallic. See below for the various loadouts and inclusions.
