The EICMA Show in Milan is one of the largest motorcycle events in the world. Anyone who has something in the motor industry must be present at this show. For this reason, all major manufacturers are planning their premiere of new models exclusively for this show. The same is for this year, and the new BMW S1000RR for the year 2019 has attracted a lot of attention.
The S1000RR is a motorcycle that changed the Supersport motorcycle market when it was first introduced in 2009 and has not seen much change since then, especially in terms of design. Now, 10 years later, BMW has introduced a new version of their best Supersport model. The model for 2019 received a completely new aggregate, a completely new suspension, and a complete redesign. So far so good ..
Lets start with an aggregate that has been changed almost completely, and the results are as follows: power is boosted for 6HP, which now gives a total of 207HP, reduction of the aggregate weight of 4kg, as well as the new BMW ShiftCam variable valve system that influences the improvement of throttle response , especially in low and middle range of revs. The electronics that control these 207HP offers in the standard version four different driving modes: Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race.
