Conquer the roads - on the BMW S 1000 R

A roadster, reduced to the essentials: maximum performance. 160 bhp/118 kW, 112 Nm torque and a power-to-weight ratio of 1.29 kilograms per bhp - and the competition disappears in the rear mirror. Like its superbike predecessor, the S 1000 R sets the benchmark in its segment.

Linear power: the engine

The high-performance 4-cylinder in-line engine derives from the RR and was optimised for the purpose of the comparison. The result: extremely linear torque delivery for constant forward propulsion across the entire engine speed range. The engine of the S 1000 R has an output of 160 PS/118 kW at 11,000 rpm, while a maximum of 112 Nm torque at 9,250 rpm puts a smile on the rider's face at every twist of the throttle.
