2018 BMW S1000RR Could Debut At EICMA Next Month


The new S1000RR will pack in new technology and be lightweight; it is able to meet the stringent Euro-V emission norms

BMW Motorrad is all set to launch its next generation litre class missile in the form of 2018 S1000RR. The motorcycle is one of the most respected bikes in the territory of super sport machines and is known particularly for its punchy and power packed performance. A couple of months back, the first spy shots of the new 2018 BMW S1000RR appeared for the very first time, making us wait for it in more anticipation.

Needless to say, the test mule in the spy images looks drastically different in comparison to the present day model. Starting off with the design, the new 2018 BMW S1000RR ditches the asymmetrical headlamp design and is now seen with a more convincing set up that has twin projector units with a central air intake. The overall body design retains its compactness in the new version as well. Also, the fairing mounted turning winkers are now gone and these find a new position on the rear view mirrors. The rear end of the 2018 BMW S1000RR is now narrower than the previous model.

The instrumentation on the new S1000RR will come as a full digital TFT display packing in a new set of features. The engine of the upcoming 2018 BMW S1000RR has been revised in order to deliver more punch while meeting the stricter Euro-V emission norms that will go mandatory starting 2020. The four cylinder engine is now expected to produce over 205 bhp and hence, will offer performance of a new level. This motor, coupled to a smaller exhaust system, makes sure that the motorcycle meets the next stage emission standards.

The 2018 BMW S1000RR is expected to be showcased at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy next month. The motorcycle will hit the showrooms during the period of mid to late 2018 and if things get postponed, it can even arrive as a 2019 year model.
