Video review: BMW S1000XR is sportier and tourier than most sports tourers

The BMW S1000R super-naked is an absolute monster, but now it's got a much more respectably dressed older brother in the S1000XR adventure sports machine. Sharing the same 999cc, 160-horsepower, extreme performance engine, the XR adds luggage, centrestands, a more comfortable touring rider position, and pretty much every practicality you can think of. Don't let the beak fool you, this is no adventure bike – it's a next-gen sports tourer that's both sportier and tourier than any sports tourer I can think of. We spent 10 days with the S1000XR for the latest in our motorcycle review videos, enjoy!

This has finally come to fruition with the launch of the all-new BMW M2 that, with a traditional rear-wheel drive layout, increased engine power, uprated handling capabilities, and improved aerodynamics, will sit neatly below the M3 as the new entry-level vehicle in BMW's M-division vehicle array.

BMW focuses on the "S" in SUV with new M40i

For a long time now, BMW has hung its hat on the fact its cars are the Ultimate Driving Machines. All of its vehicles – including the big SUVs and front-drive minivans – are billed sharp handling sports cars. That same mentality is writ large in the new X4 M40i, a "sporty" SUV with big wheels, uprated brakes and stiff suspension ... oh, and it will also hit 100 km/h in under 5 seconds.
