The 2021 BMW S 1000 R gets a large 6.5-inch TFT screen that allows you to toggle between three ride modes - Road, Rain, and Dynamic. That aside, there’s cornering ABS and a multi-level traction control system. The bike also gets Bluetooth-based smartphone connectivity for the navigation system.
The new ‘Flex Frame’ uses the motor as the stressed member. The suspension setup consists of a 45mm USD fork and an adjustable monoshock. Shedding speed on the 2021 BMW S 1000 R are a pair of 320mm front discs and a 220mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS.
The bike has a 16.5-litre fuel tank. The seat is 830mm high and should be fairly manageable for riders of all builds. It tips the scales at 199kg. However, using the optional M-package carbon wheels helps the bike shed 5kg.
