2023 BMW S 1000 RR: what’s new?

With more and more flagship supercars closing the gap to 220hp, BMW managed to add 3hp to the S 1000 RR, bringing power up to 210hp at a sky-high 13,750rpm /minute. Torque remains the same, at 113Nm and is done at 11,000rpm. This increase in peak output figures was made possible by changes such as new inlet geometry and revised feed hoppers.

The chassis has undergone significant rework and now allows for more horizontal flex. In layman’s terms, the frame of the 2023 S 1000 RR is now less rigid than the previous model, and theoretically shouldn’t be so prone to wobble. Further increasing stability is a longer wheelbase, now at 1,458mm, a more comfortable 23.6-degree rake, and an extended trail, at 99mm. The sum of all these changes is that the new model should theoretically be slightly slower when changing direction while also improving stability.

The electronics package also gets some updates, with more race-focused driving aids. The bike now features Slip Control, which allows the rear tire to protrude out of the line before power-cutting. Anti-lock braking system ABS has also been updated with a new Slick mode and new Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), which removes accidental effects from the electronic throttle after detecting a low level. certain speed.

However, the most noticeable change has occurred on the outside and the 2023 BMW S 1000 RR is equipped with a spoiler for the first time. The small wings here look very similar to the race replica BMW M1000 RR, but provides 10 kg of downforce compared to 16 kg of downforce on the M 1000 RR. The tail section has also been revised to be sleeker and now more aerodynamic as well.

Rivals from Italy include Ducati Panigale V4 2023 series and Aprilia’s RSV4 1100 Range and although they are more powerful than the Beemer, they are also significantly more expensive.
