BMW S 1000 RR (2018)

From £14,315OTR

The RR is the epitome of a superbike - and that applies to its design, too. Now in its third generation, you can instantly see its increased power. The flyline is razor-sharp and extremely clear, the volume of the contours and shapes perfectly balanced. From the rear to the front section, every trim component has been redesigned - including the headlamp element, where the symmetry has been given greater emphasis.

Increased output, reduced weight.

The new S 1000 RR has an output of 199 hp (146 kW) - 6 hp more than its predecessor. But it is not just its higher rated output that makes the Double R faster and more agile. Weighing in at 204 kg incl. ABS and traction control, it is some 4 kilos lighter than the previous version. Furthermore, it has a newly designed exhaust system without front silencer as well as a new engine set-up for increased torque, an improved output curve and many other optimised details.
