BMW Motorrad has taken the covers off the 2014 BMW S1000R at the 2013 EICMA in Milan.
It comes with a tuned 999cc inline four engine that delivers 158PS of power and 112Nm of peak torque. This motorcycle can accelerate from 0 to 100kmph in 3.2 seconds. Other changes include cylinder heads, valve lift curves, cam profiles and the BMS-X engine management feature supporting a throttle-by-wire scheme.
Race ABS with ASC (BMW’s electronic stability control) is standard. Dynamic Traction Control is also available with two modes, Dynamic and Dynamic Pro. Two riding modes available are Rain and Road. The aluminium frame and suspensions are drawn from the S1000RR but the 2014 S1000R also gets an optional semi-automatic suspension with Dynamic Damping Control.
Two radial-mounted, 4-piston brake calipers grip 320mm discs upfront, while the rear has a single-piston floating caliper which bites on a 220 mm disc. The meter cluster displays gear indicator, speedometer, shift indicator light, analogue tachometer, engine temperature gauge, fuel consumption, ride information, etc.
Other attractions from BMW at the Milan show included the 2014 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure, which is a performance bike with touring abilities, and the BMW R Nine T which was revealed a few days ago
