BMW S 1000 XR 2015

Menus

Take a hypersport. But not just any: the S 1000 RR, one of the most efficient and powerful on the market. And let engineers stuck on the trail get excited about it. Simmer for a few months, feed them lots of electronics, sparkle a few side roads and let KTM and Ducati magazines hang out on their bedside tables.. The result is called S 1000 XR. An improbable machine so little time ago and today one of the representatives of an emerging category: hyper-trails.

The silhouette is striking, with that typical BMW stumbling style. It really looks like an S 1000 RR having eaten a GS. With an insect muzzle, duckbill appendage, fairing scent and a rock-solid body, the S 1000 XR imposes its stature and philosophy. Who is ?
Adventure in sport mode. It must be recognized that a pseudo trail powered by a 4-cylinder developing no less than 160 horsepower, that takes you into a very muscular dimension of the trail-GT concept. And this machine is technically as supplied as the sports and streetfighters of the moment.

Mechanically, we are on hot ground. From the big trunk, inherited from a high-ranking sportswoman. The block of the S 1000 RR undergoes substantial modifications, allowing a less track and more road behavior. Redesigned intake ducts, revised camshafts and engine speed lowered by 2000 rpm will soften this 4-cylinder. But even losing a few watts, it still has as much power as the S 1000 R roadster and enough to compete with the Ducati 1200 Multistrada DVT and the KTM 1290 Super Adventure. Monsters !

But playful and considerate. Already, the option box invites you to fall for the Shifter Pro, to up and down gears without touching the clutch lever. As for standard equipment, BMW is committed to implementing in all its models what to assist piloting in multiple ways. The S 1000 XR naturally benefits from this. As standard we have the right to anti-slip ASC and two driving modes. Road for the right balance between performance and comfort; and Rain for more smoothness and a little less power – more description at the bottom of this page.
Let’s come back to the options, because there are in the shelves the “Pro piloting modes”. There, we swap the ASC against a dynamic traction control DTC with angle sensor (finer management) and two other driving modes. The “Dynamic” allows you to play with the machine, while the “Dynamic Pro” allows you to take full advantage of the possibilities of this machine. Better to have a good dose of experience in the pognes.

Sister of blood and metal of the S 1000 R and RR, the XR could legitimately have recovered the chassis.
Well no, this hypertrail wants its own skeleton. And tough. A strong section aluminum perimeter structure, made up of 4 elements: 2 side profiles, the engine and swingarm anchoring section, and the steering column support. The engine is also used as a supporting element. The rear frame, in aluminum profiles, is designed to support crew and luggage – with a PTMA at 434 kilos, you can carry two good quintals.

And the ground connection elements, are they trail type? Not too. It almost smacks of Superbike. The unique swingarm alone seems to be able to withstand twice the power of the S 1000 XR. The inverted 46 mm fork is very close to that of the S 1000 R roadster. When it comes to geometry, it is more focused on stability. We started by bringing in a bit of the steering head angle (64.5 ° or 0.8 less), increasing the trail to 117 mm (+ 18.5) and the wheelbase to 1548 mm (+ 109).
Let’s stick to the numbers for a bit, because you must be wondering how much a beast like this weighs. 250? 280 kilos? No, BMW announces 228 kilos ready to drive, 10 less than an R 1200 GS; but 20 more than the S 1000 R from which it derives. And like any SUV, we go back a bit with upward suspension travel…. without making it a real crossing machine. The values ​​are just above that of a roadster: 140 mm for the front and 150 for the rear. The tank is also revised upwards, with 20 liters of benzine.

We recently saw that this S 1000 XR, like most of the Behème range, has drive modes. But that’s just the surface of the iceberg. As standard (S) or optional (O), wiring, chips and sensors make this trail a mix of motorcycle, computer and co-pilot. Let’s take stock because it abounds: semi-active suspension ESA Dynamic with 4 modes (O), ABS (S) or ABS Pro when we take the additional driving modes (S), Shifter Pro (O), Cruise control (O) ), Anti-slip (S), advanced traction control (O)…. We almost forget that we can hang suitcases on the sides of the stern; with additional fixing systems.

The look of the S 1000 XR belongs to it, but in no way denies its belonging to the S clan. The cutout of the eyes is symmetrical; but as on the sports car and the roadster, the reflectors are different, so as to assert a sidelong look. Distinctive sign recurring at the Bavarian manufacturer. As an option, you can offer it an LED daytime running light, very similar to that of the R 1200 RS.
Here, what is trying to hide under this fork crown? A steering damper, clearly visible. Quickly integrated or the manufacturer’s desire to prove the stability of his leggy missile ?!?.

While state-of-the-art ABS assists braking, let’s not forget the fundamentals. Either two 320 mm discs at the front and radial calipers with 4 pistons signed Brembo. Avia hoses throughout the kinematics, and a 265mm disc with twin-piston caliper. Standard for this level of service at BM, both classic and proven.

Streetfighter in a trail suit? Muscular roadster on stilts? Trail hypersport? A bit of it all in the BMW S 1000 XR. The driving position more senatorial than on a roadster and more accommodating suspensions, the bubble of a good size and the wide handlebars invite you to a more relaxed disposition. Once the engine is started, no illusions to be made: there is fire underneath, capable of taking you very quickly, very hard. The instrument cluster from the S 1000 R and RR continues to maintain the family relationship and maintains the look in sportiness. The pneumatic ride follows this path: 120/70 – 17 and 190/55 – 17, these are very road and / or sporty dimensions, far removed from the finesse of an enduro ride.
The Bavarian manufacturer has developed a kind of TGV on two wheels capable of spinning like the wind between Paris and Antibes, grazing from Chambery to Val Thorens and attempting the experience of the rough road..

In “Road” mode, the driving aids are adjusted to offer an optimal balance between performance and comfort on dry roads. The response to acceleration is direct and the anti-wheeling protection eliminates any detachment of the front wheel.

The “Rain” mode allows the motorcycle to be configured for road conditions characterized by reduced adhesion coefficients. The motorcycle therefore responds very smoothly to acceleration and the detachment of the front wheel during acceleration is eliminated. The power is reduced to 146 hp.

The “Dynamic” mode reveals the sporty side of the new BMW S 1000 XR. A spontaneous reaction to acceleration and discreet DTC intervention fully enhance its dynamic potential. In this mode, the anti-wheeling protection intervention threshold is pushed back so as to allow the front wheel to detach when accelerating..

In “Dynamic Pro” mode, the behavior is very dynamic. The reaction to the opening of the throttle grip is transparent and direct, and the DTC setting even allows you to savor the advantages of very grippy sports tires on roads with a high coefficient of grip, including on the racetrack. In this mode, the pilot must actively control the separation of the front wheel and, therefore, any wheelies. The “Dynamic Pro” mode is activated by plugging in an encoder plug. As long as the encoder plug is plugged in, the Traction control deactivated and the ABS disconnected remain so, even after switching off and restarting the ignition..

ABS Pro : it adapts the regulation of the brakes to the angle of inclination of the motorcycle, according to the given riding situation. This limits the righting of the motorcycle during braking and improves control of the machine. In addition, this system reacts differently depending on the driving mode, also intervening with more or less intrusion in the separation of the rear wheel..
