Among the new sports touring bikes featured at the Milan Motorcycle Exhibition, the BMW S 1000 XR. Deriving its 4-cylinder engine from the S 1000 RR model, this machine has been greatly upgraded, in order to improve both efficiency and lightness, starting with the frame. Weight has also been reduced by around 10 kg while the engine performance in terms of maximum power and torque - 165 hp at 11.000 rpm while the torque peak is 114 Nm at 9.250 rpm - has been maintained. Electronics are even more advanced than in the past thanks to the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform, capable to manage controls and semi-active suspensions.
