BMW gives new updates to its 2020 BMW S 1000 RR and XR
They get even more goodies and are now Euro 5 compliant.
BMW Motorrad hasn’t been wasting time in giving the rest of its motorcycle lineup some much-needed updates to stay more competitive and remain in the market for all of us to enjoy. More particularly, the S 1000 RR and S 1000 XR get some much-needed upgrades. Both motorcycles are powered by the same 999 cc inline-4 engine but are mapped and tuned differently for supersport and touring applications.
S 1000 RR
For the S 1000 RR, BMW’s fully-faired supersport offering is now Euro 5 compliant to ensure that it could be offered to countries with even the most stringent emissions standards within the European market and India. It now gets a new paint finish with Black Storm Metallic. However, its Racing Red Gloss color option has now been dropped from its current lineup of color options. It now gets a whole new expanded range of optional parts selection which includes the M Performance exhaust, new milled clutch lever protector, engine protector, footrest systems, and much more. BMW also offers an optional M Endurance chain, M GPS Laptrigger, which allows you to keep better tabs of your best lap times on the track via GPS.
S 1000 XR
Meanwhile, the S 1000 XR, its sport-touring counterpart, is also now Euro 5 compliant and being offered with a new Variant, Style Sport. It now comes with new color options including Lightweight Non-Metallic, Racing Blue metallic, and Racing Red non-metallic. Just like the RR, it now gets an expanded range of optional parts including a titanium sports exhaust silencer, M Endurance chain, Windshield Sport, a new Tour Package that includes a luggage rack for a top case, USB charging port, and a Core Screen Laptimer. The S 1000 XR super sport-tourer also gets assorted milled parts and accessories.
Both the BMW S 1000 R and the S 1000 XR are considered the bigger versions of the newly released F 900 R and F 900 XR, but sporting bigger inline-four engines. The updates would surely redirect some attention to them from the smaller two F 900’s which have been spoiled with a lot of press time lately.
