Mania super-naked which started from 1290 KTM Super Duke R continues. After the Kawasaki introduced its yesterday, today is the turn came BMW Motorrad which is fully revealed his S1000R. Naked variant S1000RR superbike is somewhat heavier, weaker and poorer electronically, but not visually less attractive.
KTM has just enough “crazy” to his super-naked equipment engine that develops more than 180 hp. Kawasaki and BMW were not so brave, so the number of horses that have their specimens transferred from superbike variants further reduced. BMW Motorrad is the figure stopped at 162 hp and 112 Nm of torque, which are now available at lower rpm. To reduce power BMW has revised cylinder heads, crankshaft and changed little tame engine electronics.
S1000R may be removed armor that worn superbike version, but it was not bring less kilos on the scale. Moreover, the weight has fallen to him and grew to two pounds, and BMW’s naked weighs just over 206 kg. One thing BMW’s engineers did not touch, such as suspension and brakes, which have remained the same as the superbike variants. What is unfortunately not fully retain the BMW’s naked is a bunch of electronics with the disposal of the S1000RR.
