The R gets chassis upgrades from the RR, with claimed improvements in rigidity, flex and mechanical grip. It also gets the same vibration-reducing bar mounts and engine upgrades as the XR, while managing to lose 2kg, along with gaining the once optional HP titanium silencer as standard. BMW say the intake has also been modified to improve airflow and deliver more induction noise. Two riding modes (Road and Rain) and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) are now standard, as is Race ABS. DTC is an optional extra.
