BMW S1000XR Sport SE

RiDE (UK) - - Group Ride -

Launched in 2015, the S1000XR fuses the rid­ing po­si­tion and height of the R1200GS with the raw speed and sporty poise of the S1000R su­per­naked. For 2017 it’s been up­dated with a whisker more power (claimed out­put up from 158bhp to 162bhp), de­spite hav­ing a cleaner Euro4-com­pli­ant ex­haust. More use­fully, its pay­load (the to­tal amount the bike can carry) has been in­creased by 10kg to 216kg. Price starts at £12,650 but we’re test­ing the Sport SE model (£15,010), which comes with ev­ery­thing ex­cept pan­niers (£510.20) and blue paint (£90).
