About S 1000 XR [2018-2019]

As BMW calls it, the S 1000 XR is an adventure sports motorcycle. The bike is less of an off-road bike, and is more focused on touring. 

In terms of design, the bike bears a lot of semblance to the supersport S 1000 RR. The S 1000 XR, being a tourer, is equipped with a tall windscreen and the split seats are designed for long distance rides.  Electronically, the bike comes loaded with two riding modes and Automatic Stability Control (ASC) as standard. Also available as an option is the Ride Modes Pro, which allows the rider to choose from two additional modes and BMW’s Dynamic Traction Control (DTC). BMW has also provided an optional Gear Shift Assist Pro which allows for clutch-less upshifts and downshifts.

Braking duties on the bike are done by 320mm dual discs in the front and a 265mm disc at the rear. The bike features a 20-litre fuel tank and has a kerb weight of 228kg. The S 100 XR is powered by a 999cc in-line four engine that produces 165bhp and 114Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and final chain drive.

The BMW S 1000 XR competes with the Ducati Multistrada 1200 and Kawasaki Versys 1000. It is priced at Rs 18.77 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).

BMW S 1000 XR [2018-2019] Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • 165bhp engine is known for its excellent performance
    • Behaves like a sportsbike on the road
    • Equipped with multiple riding modes
  • Could be Better

    • Instrument cluster looks dated
    • Can’t take it off-road
    • Expensive and limited service reach

BikeWale's Take

The S1000XR is BMW’s litre-class touring motorcycle. It is equipped with the same engine that is seen on the S1000RR, but has been detuned to offer better mid-range dynamics. The bike gets plenty of electronics, just like other bikes in its segment. Unfortunately, BMW has priced it quite high making other motorcycles look quite enticing.
