Why on earth wouldn’t you want a 160bhp naked bike from BMW? Well, unless you lack any
resemblance of self control and rely on your licence for work that is…
the S1000R followed that great formula for super nakeds, take a class-leading sportsbike as a
base and then simply remove its fairing and stick on a set of flat bars to create a full-bore naked.
And that’s exactly what BMW did. And boy did they build a bit of an animal.
Boasting a claimed (and realistic) 160bhp and backing up the R’s performance is the usual BMW
array of electronics, and that means traction control, ABS, power modes and even the option of
semi-active suspension and angle-sensitive traction control.
So you have a full-on sportsbike chassis with nearly all its power still retained within its motor and
flat bars. What’s not to like?
