2018 BMW S 1000 XR
Unchanged for 2018, save the new HP Motorsport colors and a Pro seat with the XR logo stitched in, the 2018 BMW S 1000 XR remains a premier high-performance sport-tourer.
While BMW may put the XR in its adventure line, with a 17-inch front wheel, it’s definitely aimed at street-performance. Powered by a 160 horsepower engine based on the S 1000 RR superbike powerplant, the S 1000 XR is seriously fast with outstanding handling to match.
Bags are easily added, and the tall seat provides a premium view. An impressive electronics suite makes the 2018 BMW S 1000 XR easy to ride and one of our favorite sport-touring platforms.
