2024 BMW S 1000 XR

Improved performance, optimized ergonomics, sleeker design, and more standard and optional features.

BMW Motorrad has introduced the new, updated 2024 S 1000 XR, an enhanced version of the successful, long-distance sports bike. Increased engine power, improved ergonomics, design refinements and expanded standard features define the model’s upgrades.

The reworked in-line four-cylinder engine now delivers more impressive performance, with a flow-optimized intake channels and a power output of 170 horsepower. 

The new S 1000 XR shares its in-line four-cylinder engine with the S 1000 RR, providing a smooth and powerful torque delivery that contributes to excellent rideability. Compared to the predecessor model, power has been increased by 5 horsepower to 170 horsepower at an unchanged 11,000 rpm. The main reasons for the performance increase are the flow-optimized geometry of the intake runners and customized engine mapping. The maximum torque generated remains at 84 pound-feet at 9,250 rpm.

Improved Ergonomics Thanks to New Seat and Rear Section

In order to provide even more freedom of movement, especially during high-performance riding on country roads or at the track, the seat of the long-distance sports bike has been completely redesigned. It now offers an extra 0.4 inches of seat height (33.5 inches) and provides more space by increasing the usable length and width of the seat, allowing for better adjustment of the seating position depending on the riding conditions. The improved ergonomics make it easier for riders to maneuver the S 1000 XR on the street or on the track, providing better control. A total of three different seat heights are available.

The new S 1000 XR also benefits from redesigned elements in its design. The rear section now features new side panels and air intakes inspired by motorsports, giving it a more dynamic look. Additionally, the radiator trim now has a textured surface, and the previously black-colored “beak” front fender is now painted in body color.

Extended Range of Standard Equipment and New Options

The new S 1000 XR comes with an expanded standard equipment list. As part of the standard equipment, Headlight Pro provides additional safety during night-time rides with its adaptive turning light. The rider benefits from improved road illumination in corners. Keyless Ride and a 12-amp-hour capacity battery are now standard features. Additionally, the new BMW S 1000 XR is equipped with a standard USB charging socket.

Other updates include standard Intelligent Emergency Call feature, the option to equip the S 1000 XR with the optional M GPS Laptrigger and the availability of M Carbon wheels.
