Motorcycle News (UK) - - New Bikes Special -

165bhp | 205kg | Seat height 814mm

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.
