2022 BMW S1000RR Features
BMW ShiftCam technology: a combination of optimized torque and top-end performance.
When you first accelerate you will immediately notice: that this bike’s torque curve is captivating even at low and middle speeds thanks to BMW’s ShiftCam technology. The intake valves are controlled as needed by means of a control camshaft. Depending on the speed, the valve lift and timing of the valve opening are adjusted to ensure the best performance for you and your RR.
ABS and ABS Pro: from maximum stability to the highest possible performance.
The RR has standard ABS and ABS Pro, depending on your riding mode: RAIN, ROAD, DYNAMIC, RACE or optional RACE Pro-1 to 3. So you decide whether your bike needs the maximum stability or the highest possible performance.
Standard Gear Shift Assist Pro: switch gears in milliseconds with maximum stability and performance.
On the road or on the track: This feature is a must. With the standard feature Gear Shift Assist Pro, you can smoothly shift up or down without pulling the clutch lever, so you can fully concentrate on the road. At the same time, the load-bearing influences on the body and rear wheel have been reduced to a minimum. The result: you’re faster, more stable and can enjoy even higher performance and more riding pleasure.
Completely developed Dynamic Damping Control (DDC): ideal damping for country roads and the track.
The RR comes optionally equipped with the next generation DDC. Now the electronic valve is parallel to the mechanical valve. If necessary, the damping is reduced or increased in 10 milliseconds via this bypass line. For the road or the track, you can rely on exceptional damping. The suspension spring can also be adjusted manually.
The standard LED headlights give the RR its new unmistakable sporty-aggressive look. This applies not only to the front headlights but to the front turn signals, which have been moved from the fairing to the mirrors on the new RR. For the rear of the bike, the turn signal, brake and tail light have been combined into one component.
6.5" TFT display: everything in sight – and under control.
The benchmark in the superbike segment: the TFT display of the RR. With 6.5″ you have a perfect overview of your bikes information. You can choose between the Pure Ride screen that’s reduced to the essentials, or one of three Core Ride screens that display other important information. Everything under control with the multi-controller on the left handlebar: Simply scroll through the menu of your 6.5″ TFT display and access the various functions and settings – without taking your hands off the handlebars, so you maintain full control.
Ergonomics: more comfort, support and freedom of movement.
Not only is the new RR a lot lighter at a mere 434 lbs, it’s also got the perfect ergonomics. The frame, tank, seat, tail and footpegs have all been modified for more support, freedom of movement, more feedback and better knee closure.
The interplay of the milled footpegs and the new handlebar ergonomics with the M seat, in addition to even more feedback, lets you ride longer and concentrate on achieving faster lap times.
Strut and swing arm: performance, sensitivity and adjustability – everything for your personal victory.
The new RR is equipped with an aluminum swing arm and offers you better power distribution and less reaction from the chassis when accelerating. That saves the tires. The standard shock absorber of the new RR is now further away from the engine and is therefore less exposed to heat. In addition, a larger damper piston improves damping in all riding situations.
Standard seat and special equipment: always firmly in the saddle.
When you look at the standard seat, you’ll immediately know that perfect feedback was the goal. This allows not only more freedom of movement, but also the perfect amount of contact with the motorcycle while riding. The standard seat height is 32.4” and the inner-leg curve is 71.9”.
In addition to the standard seat, there’s also the optional M seat for the new RR. Its firmness and slip-resistant cover save power when accelerating or braking hard, and bring more stability to the bike. The M seat is part of the M Package. It is available in three seat heights (32 in, 32.4 in and 33.4 in) as a special accessory.
