While BMW is no stranger to superb motorcycles, they still have to do their due diligence to stay relevant across the category. In this case, that means giving a jolt of life to their superbike range by introducing the new, very impressive 2019 BMW S 1000 RR.
The third iteration of this particular bike, BMW Motorrad set out to make it lighter, faster, and easier to ride than ever before. And, wouldn’t you know it, they’ve succeeded entirely. This new version is powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder engine that’s capable of producing an outstanding 207 horsepower. While that figure isn’t the highest of the comparable bikes we’ve seen recently, there are other things that give this particular ride a big boost. For instance, the brand has included their ShiftCam variable valve technology to greatly improve the torque curve, swapped in a new suspension — allowing for better precision and improved handling — that allowed them to cut the overall weight by 25 pounds, and they’ve even loaded it with some neat and helpful electronic functionality like ABS and up to seven selectable driving modes. This marvelous bike is available now starting at $15,995.
