2020 BMW S 1000 XR

The 2020 BMW S 1000 XR is an adventure touring motorcycle that is one of the best middleweight adventure bikes out there with a focus more on the street. It’s a model designed to be used more on the pavement than on the off-road trail.

The model features a 999cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine that makes a 165 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque. The motorcycle has plenty of power for highway cruising and around town riding.

The S 1000 XR is most at home on the pavement but it can also take to an off-road trail if it needs to. It’s the bike’s versatility that makes it worth its $19,750 (Canadian) price tag. The bike is new for the 2020 model year and is not yet on the U.S. website.

The motorcycle is available in Ice Grey or Racing Red / White Aluminum Metallic Matte
