The latest spy shots of the Bmw S1000 XR
The engine and frame derive from the S1000R, the handle bars are higher though providing a better touring riding position. The weight of the 160 PS bike will be 215 kg. The subframe is expected to be strengthened in order to cope with the weight of the top case and panniers.
This new bike will be unveiled at the Intermot motor show in October and it will reach the dealerships about April 2015.

Bmw to introduce an S1000RR based road-oriented adventure bike?
The S1000F should be a competitor to the Ducati Multistrada not only in terms of sheer output but also to the sporty rides on twisty roads. Since it is a Bmw, it must be a comfortable bike to perform fast journeys. The bike is expected to feature all the latest electronic gimmicks and it could be customized by a long list of Bmw extras.
