Patent imaged from China surface the web

This is the final showdown. And nothing is going to change henceforth. This, guys, is the 2019 BMW S-1000RR. Published by China’s intellectual property office, this liter-class weapon from the Bavarian manufacturer is finally out from the cages in the CAD forms, unofficially though.

Looking at it, and with the snapped test mule we showcased in July, we can confirm that this is indeed the 1000RR we all have been waiting for. The designs are a reminiscence of the S-1000 RRs’ we have been accustomed to before but misses out on that all prolific asymmetric headlights. Instead, we see a pair of matching lights on either side of the central air intake.

She is now, at eight years old, missing a few exquisite equipment lists and sorts of electronic wizardry that adorns the modern 2018 competition like the Fireblades’, Ninjas’, R1s’ and the GSXs’. Of course, there is the Ducati Panigales’, but those are out of reach for a lot of us. They are faster, lighter and cleverer than ever before and could easily clip off the S 1000 RR one by one.

Luckily, BMW says enough is enough and are readying a machine that could spell out being the Pinnacle of German Engineering. Although late to the party, the Germans are finally upping the ante of their liter-class superbike, the S 1000RR. To regain control of that consciousness, the chaps at BMW are updating it with what seems to be aking a few cues from the brand’s flagship monster motorcycle, the HP4 Race.

Signature design features like the asymmetric fairings with gills will be creeping onto this model as well on the right side of the machine and a single gaping vent on the left. Unfortunately, the headlight assembly will be a pair of similar eyes. What immediately catches our eyes though is the mighty huge underbelly catalyst that will conform to the Euro V norms.

BMW have made these motors run smoother and quieter with the drop in the noise levels, and hence the bigger exhaust unit with a smaller silencer. The chassis and mainframe are also said to have changed to make it more track-focused to pair with the tweaks it is getting done on its four-pot motor that is said to define engineering limits known to current technology.

We might get to see a modern TFT instrumentation and a more robust and adjustable electronics system tackling the IMU more efficiently and responsibly. Brembos’, Ohlin’s will all be top-notch, and it will run on a brand-new in-line four pot making this S-1000RR a case of revolution rather than an evolution.

BMW will probably launch the S1000RR at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany, next month part of a massive model range revamp that will also include the new R1250GS, R1250GS Adventure, R1250RT, and F850GS Adventure.
