How new en­gine will power more mod­els

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The four-cylin­der S1000RR en­gine has found its way into other ar­eas of the BMW range in re­cent years – sup­ply­ing the mas­sively pop­u­lar (and im­por­tant to BMW) S1000R naked hooli­gan, and S1000XR ad­ven­ture sport bike.

Both will un­doubt­edly also ben­e­fit from the all-new en­gine – but not just yet. With the new RR ex­pected to ar­rive in 2019, we wouldn’t an­tic­i­pate the R or XR get­ting their own re­tuned ver­sions un­til 2020, fall­ing neatly in line with the in­tro­duc­tion of Euro5, some­thing which the cur­rent S1000 en­gine hasn’t been de­signed to meet.
