The focus in the main scene lies on the S 1000 RR’s motor and its new features. With its newly developed 4-cylinder in-line engine, now 4 kg lighter than before, the new RR achieves an entirely new level of performance. The geometry of the intake and exhaust ports was further optimized and the motorcycle now comes with BMW ShiftCam Technology, an entirely new technology for BMW motorcycles which varies the valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side. A revised intake passage and a new exhaust system that is 1.3 kg lighter likewise contribute to increased overall performance. Ridability and sprint capability benefit from a substantially increased torque across a wide engine speed range.
