I've enjoyed this bike and when I saw BMW's talking points I agreed with them:
>>>The motorbike with the dynamic performance of a racer, the upright seat position of an adventure machine and the endurance of a tourer. The BMW S 1000 XR combines the best aspects of each of these worlds to create BMW Motorrad's first adventure sports bike: perfect for anyone who wants performance and comfort in one machine.
DESIGN: the perfect fusion.
The S 1000 XR is exceptional – and that's exactly how it looks. With its synthesis of sports, touring and adventure, it combines the visual characteristics and qualities of each of these categories, making it one impressive-looking bike. The sporty shape and typical BMW S 1000 RR Splitface emphasize its supersport influence, while its characteristic flyline, "beak" and relatively long spring travel reflect the look and ergonomics of the GS series. Wherever the S 1000 XR rolls up, it's sure to turn heads.
TECHNOLOGY: power meets innovation.
The powerful, four-cylinder series motor delivers a huge 160 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 83 lb-ft at 9,250 rpm. But it's more than just the sporty thrills that impress with the S 1000 XR – the innovative technology also offers a high level of comfort and safety. The S 1000 XR comes with two selectable driving modes as standard − "Rain" and "Road" – allowing riders to adapt optimally to riding conditions. The standard ASC (Automatic Stability Control) ensures a high level of riding safety based on optimum traction. In short, the S 1000 XR can do everything – from tearing along winding country roads to tours for two with full luggage.
