2012 BMW S1000RR and Benefits


Just as the S 1000 RR sports the water four cylinder inline of solely 59.8 kg delivering a top output of 142 kW (193 hp) at 13,000 rpm and a top speed of 14,200 rpm. The max of 112 Nm is reached at 9750 rpm.

throttle for improved overall

The primary objective in this level of development for the new RR was to target the for combining the outstanding engine with even greater To this end, the throttle was reconfigured in engine control. To engine control consisted of individual throttle curves for of the Rain, Sport, Race, and modes.

For the new RR, these have reduced to two: a characteristic for a particularly gentle and sensitive in Rain mode, and a second for direct and spontaneous response in the Race, and Slick modes. this measure, the rider now no needs to adjust to the constantly throttle characteristics when frequently between Sport, and Slick modes. At the same this also served to the load change behaviour.

For sensitive and fast regulation, the valve now features a supporting with a low spring rate reduces the actuating force. And the angle is now considerably smaller on the new throttle.

Optimised power and curves and lower secondary

The higher priority objective of the possible ridability also the optimisation of the power and torque

Three new power curves been defined: one each for the and Sport modes and an additional one for the and Slick modes (in contrast to when there was one for the Rain and a second for the Sport, Race and modes). With an eye to improving and thrust properties, we have the secondary ratio from its 17:44 to its present 17:45.

In Rain mode, the new S 1000 RR now 120 kW (163 hp), or 8 kW (11 hp) more previously. In Sport, Race, and modes, the RR can still deliver a top output of 142 kW (193 hp), but the could be significantly raised in the lower speed range 5000 and 7500 rpm. The is essentially more linear and engine characteristics.

Also the curves have been for the purpose of improved ridability. So the new RR now three different torque (previously two): one each for the and Sport modes and an additional one for and Slick. All four modes from the greater harmony and of the torque curve.

In addition, the new S RR delivers in all four modes a greater torque in the 5000-7500 rpm And particularly in Rain mode, the RR considerably improved ridability. the torque curve for the predecessor virtually plateaued from rpm, the new engine now revs up freely, and the curve rises to 9000 rpm.

New combustion in the overrun phase.

For uncompromising characteristics with treadless on the racetrack, Slick mode has reconfigured for enhanced performance. involved a series of modifications to the map for overrun phase combustion effectively eliminated permanent fuel cutoff. Now, phase combustion control braking torque and engine torque into an optimised torque on the rear wheel.

The is even greater riding and stability during braking and

Modified stainless steel system and optimised intake air

The all stainless steel exhaust on the S 1000 RR features a redesigned converter and front pipes. previously in the front pipes, the cartridges are now integrated in the front The interactions between the 20% larger section of the intake air guide in the head, the modified airbox, the new geometry, and modified engine all served to increase the torque as above.

These modifications to the system now eliminate the need for the shield installed previously on the oil

Dynamic Traction Control with enhanced control

When unveiled in 2009, the S RR was the first series supersports in the world to combine Race ABS Dynamic

Traction Control The fact that BMW Motorrad implement these two technologies such ease proved to be so that nearly 100% of the leaving production are fitted these two systems. Both have seen continued in the course of technical advances.

Traction Control (DTC) is a assist system with a angle sensor that the rider and provides him with extra safety on roads compromised coefficients of friction. the laws of physics, it regulates the drive torque, preventing the wheel from spinning in all situations.

For the new RR, modifications have been to reflect the new geometry, and wheelie has been optimised. When detection engages, the throttle now open much more Moreover, Dynamic Traction (DTC) has been optimised for riding and control performance in the and Slick modes.

The new DTC application is on the BMW Race Power Kit for better during highly sporty on the racetrack. The experienced rider can achieve faster lap times.

The S 1000 RR boasts innovative technology for the highest level of performance. The refinements made to the have focused particularly on agility, handling, and inclined In addition, the modifications lead to suspension reserves and an enhanced for all situations and the threshold level.

In the new RR feels even lighter and manoeuvrable, but without sacrifice to stability.

New suspension geometry for handling and greater steering

The new S 1000 RR features a modified with a new steering head and section. Besides new key figures for the there is also a 20% larger section of the intake air guide in the head. The steering head is now 66 instead of the earlier 66.1. The has now been shortened by 9.3 mm to 1422.7 mm, and the has been lengthened by 2.6 mm to 98.5 mm.

The bridge offset (front is now 2.5 mm shorter at 29.5 mm. In addition, the projection is 5 mm shorter than in the model. These modifications included revisions to the steering bearing for a lower breakaway and hence greater steering

Redesigned spring elements for a range of applications.

The new spring now allow a wider range of configurations between comfortable for the and tight for the racetrack. As before, the can be configured quickly and easily at the defined scales on the spring The new suspension adjustment now benefits on both country roads and the Internal friction has been on the fork and spring strut.

down fork with new workings.

To date, the upside fork on the S 1000 RR was fitted bottom valve damping. Now a mid speed damping valve, the can now utilise additional force at the piston to build up compression with greater speed and

Also, the constant flow has been reduced for improved from the front section. The rod guide and the bearing concept been revised for a better, transparent response.

New spring with revised damping.

The spring strut now features a rod whose diameter has been from 14 to 18 mm, allowing more oil to through the low/mid speed Here too, the reduction to the flow area increases the and precision of compression damping

At the same time, the needle has been modified on both and now allows a highly linear of damping force over the range of settings. All in all, modifications to the buildup of damping greatly enhance the effects and conveyed by each configuration.

A check valve installed in the rod counteracts any negative effects on damping when the rebound is set.

Also the spring now presents a smaller constant area for improved feedback.

the new RR offers considerably greater comfort at the same time as feedback and dynamics.

Race ABS fine tuning and clear

The Race ABS on the S 1000 RR has been specifically and exclusively for the requirements on the segment.

For the new RR, it has been adapted to the new geometry and now provides optimised performance. An adaptive learner, it the requirements even of highly riders and detects diverse conditions and tyres.

By pressing the the rider receives feedback the Race ABS as to when the traction will be exceeded and the control reached. The rider feels feedback as a slight pulsing in the levers.

New mechanical adjustable damper.

Unlike its predecessor, the RR now a mechanical steering damper over ten levels. This the rider to choose the configuration suited to his riding style.

New swing arm and new swing arm bearing

Depending on the S 1000 RR paintwork, the wheel swing arm is either or provided with a black, dip coating in lieu of the earlier grey paint.

The swing arm bush in the frame’s tail is now secured in place with the one (instead of two as in the predecessor model) at a 4 mm higher for the full effect of the suspension geometry.

New heel

The heel plates have redesigned for the optimal ergonomics. The on the passenger footrests have been redesigned.

Fork in a new design.

The forged and milled top bridge for the RR now presents a new design as a constituent of the cockpit always in of the rider. The fork bridge is now 2.5 mm shorter at 29.5 mm.
