BMW unveils the 2015 S1000XR ... we quiver with fear

By - November 4, 2014 28 Pictures
Next in the flurry of new bikes from EICMA Milan 2014 is BMW’s answer to the magnificent Ducati Multistrada – the S1000XR. Featuring the same wild-eyed 1000cc, 160-horsepower, inline 4-cylinder engine that scared the wrinkles out of my undercarriage in the insane S1000R nakedbike, the XR is a fire-breathing, road focused light adventure bike with as much potential for long-range touring as it has for blowing the mirrors off sportsbikes in the twisties. It also features this year’s latest must-have gadget – lean angle-sensitive ABS Pro, as well as BMW’s wonderful cruise control unit to round out an impressive electronics package. Read More

Lighter, faster 2015 BMW S1000RR with lean angle readouts and cruise control

By - September 30, 2014 34 Pictures
BMW has re-worked its class-leading S1000RR superbike in two directions – more performance and more rider-friendly usability. With a 6-horsepower increase to 199 peak ponies (148 kW), and a 4 kg (8.8 lb) weight reduction, performance seems taken care of. Likewise, the road rider has been looked after with speed limiters, lean angle readouts, and the first cruise control system ever fitted to a superbike. It appears we'll need to get another choir in to celebrate. Read More

Video road test: BMW R NineT

By - September 11, 2014 25 Pictures
BMW's R nineT is a refreshing bit of reminiscence from a brand in transition. It resonates with BMW designs of decades past, with a retro-cool roadster design and a big fat 1200cc boxer engine, even as the company establishes itself as a force in the razor sharp end of the superbike and super-naked field. It's the kind of bike people want to pose for photos with; it oozes class and quality from every pore – and it's on 12-month waiting lists in many countries as a result. It rides well, but it makes some sacrifices at the altar of beauty. Enjoy the latest of our video road tests as Loz Blain spends a couple of weeks with the nineT. Read More
