165bhp | 228kg | Seat height 840mm

BMW say they’ve ad­dressed the XR’S vi­bra­tion is­sues this with some new vi­bra­tion-re­duc­ing han­dle­bar mounts. That 165bhp mo­tor, al­ready nuts enough, is now Euro4 com­pli­ant, and in the round of nips and tucks they ac­tu­ally found an­other five bhp lurk­ing, so they’ve added it to the pot, mak­ing a claimed 165bhp at peak. Mean­while the pay­load has in­creased 10kg, but the XR han­dles well and should be able to cope with the ex­tra mass.
