Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of BMW S1000RR:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). In the specific case the fuel economy of BMW S1000RR allows you to ride 37.9 miles with one gallon of fuel or in other words it will burn 6.20 liters of fuel on a 100 kilometers (62 miles) run. It can be calculated that BMW S1000RR can cover a mileage of 175 miles with a tank full of fuel based on its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity - 17.5 liters.
- 999 cc engine size (displacement) - this is the total volume enclosed in the movement of all pistons in the engine cylinders from their bottom to their top position in a stroke. In the common case the bigger the displacement volume the more powerful the engine and lesser fuel economy. The BMW S1000RR engine has a displacement volume of 999 cc according to the specifications above and is specified in cubic centimeters but can also be measured in liters.
- 140 mm or 5.5 inches ground clearance - this is the distance between the ground surface and the lowest part of S1000RR not counting the tyres of course as they are meant to be in contact with the ground. Motorcycles with lower ground clearance would have better handling as their center of gravity will be lower than average.Bore and stroke measures of BMW S1000RR
- 80x49.7 bore and stroke - this is a term concerning the engine parameters describing the ratio between cylinder bore diameter and piston stroke. If bore and stroke have equal measures then the engine is called square. According to the technical specifications of BMW S1000RR its bore is 80 mm and the stroke is 49.7 mm. For this particular BMW engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that S1000RR has a short stroke engine.
- 13:1 compression ratio is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the lowest point it is ever gonna go down and the volume of gas when the piston is at its highest point. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Chain final drive: If you wonder which of the final drive variations is best in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel, the answer is that all of them have specific advantages and may surpass the rest in performance on certain occasions and style of riding. All of them are workable technologies and have proved that over the years. The final drive of BMW S1000RR is chain.
final drive implemented with chainOne of the most economical way to drive horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle is achieved with the chain drive and therefore it is still the most used among the three options by bike manufacturers. The down points of the chain drive are the frequent maintenance required as it needs to be regularly cleaned and oiled. Besides it is not as smooth as a shaft or belt drive.
- Liquid cooling system: both air and liquid cooling systems serve the same purpose to keep the engine in an optimal temperature range and they both have their advantages. Liquid cooling is generally used in multi-cycinder engines with higher horsepower usually found in sport bikes and touring motorcycles to keep the engine in its optimal temperature range for its efficient performance.How to replace the BMW S1000RR turn signals
- Replacing BMW S1000RR turn signals is an easy job and commonly considered a do it yourself project. When disconnecting the wires of your motorcycle turn signals it is advisable to stick distinct tapes on them if they are not color coded. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). Complete the installation of the new BMW S1000RR turn signals by properly connecting the wires after they are securely mounted.BMW S1000RR with protective bike cover
The dimensions of the BMW S1000RR are important when choosing a motorcycle cover. If any additional aftermarket accessories have been installed on the bike they may have an effect on the dimensions. To provide a better protection a larger cover will be needed if additional panniers, sissy bar or windshield have been fitted on the motorcycle.

I’m very impressed by my new BMW S1000RR motorcycle - the chasis is designed to provide comfort, great engine and loads of torque in this bike. Sometimes I feel so much power in that bike and it makes me wonder whether it is really only 1000 cc. The power delivery is very smooth and steering so easy that I’m really surprised how easy to control these 195 horse powers really are. I’ve heard of some other BMW S1000RR owners having problems with the gearbox of their motorcycles but mine never gave me a hard time.
Finally something that is not connected with this particular motorcycle but is of great importance as it concerns our own safety - I always ride with my biker’s leather jacket and pants. Even in the hot summer days safety comes first because, you know, it’s better to sweat than bleed. The amount of fun BMW S1000RR supplies is worth even more than the retail price of the bike. It now has 45K on the dash now and shows no signs of giving up anytime soon. After so many years of biking I finally found a bike that I’m completely happy with and that totally matches my stile of riding.
Positive accents: This bike has everything you’d ask from a motorcycle of that class.
Bad points: Can’t really think of any negative aspects.

Couple of months before buying my BMW S1000RR I had a talk with friend of mine who had the same and he raved about its handling and powerful engine. Even my girlfriend who is not really after bikes was quite impressed by its beautiful look. The bike has a high level of standard equipment and advanced electronics showing even information of the lean angle and brake pressure. Apart from that I find it quite easy to adjust the suspension to my current needs. Handles and brakes superbly with the Brembo brakes installed.
It sounds good with the current exhaust and is an eye catcher in the town. Also it’s performing well in curvy country roads.
I’m slightly taller than the average size and the windshield is quite low and the foot pegs high for me or at least that’s how I felt at the beginning. Now I’m completely used to my BMW S1000RR motorcycle.
Positive accents: Well balanced motorcycle with fantastic motor and good top speed.
Bad points: The fuel economy is not very good at very high speeds but that I guess is common for all the similar motorcycles.

Surprisingly I find my BMW S1000RR motorcycle easy to be ridden considering the power in its engine. The aspects of the engineering are determined and focused on the role this motorcycle is designed to fulfill. It is well balanced and handles really well. Owning a clever bike with such an advanced electronics and features is exiting. It has four modes which you can switch – Sport, Race, Rain and Slick. All sort of information including the throttle position is gathered and passed to a computer which makes the adjustments needed.
Never had a problem on the road, however I do look after my bikes and service them regularly and thoroughly. slightly forward stance which is a minor inconvenience. This BMW S1000RR motorcycle definitely deserves its price with all the extras and advanced electronics it has. The closest Dicati model is a way more expensive. After 16 years of riding I found my bike and I intend to keep it.
Positive accents: Reliable brakes controlled with ABS braking system.
Bad points: Heats up in urban traffic and fuel tank volume is relatively small.
