MCN overall review verdict: Welcome to the BMW S1000R review. The German firm gave us what we all wanted in 2014: a naked S1000RR superbike. Bear in mind that, at the time, they had just ripped up the superbike rule book with the RR and was still reigning supreme. So the thought of stripping the fairing off it and fitting straight bars was the ultimate temptation for speed-crazed road riders. And it didn’t disappoint. Although BMW moved a chunk of the RR’s explosive power into the midrange the S1000R still went like a superbike and handled like one, too. Not only that, in true BMW style, it was easy to live with, was comfortable and if you ticked all the options boxes, you could have everything from electronic rider aids, semi-active suspension, heated grips and cruise control.

It’s slowly slipped down the order, even after its 2017 update and by comparison its inline four motor lacks a bit of character with slightly wooden suspension and brakes. You can still buy an S1000R new today (2020) with a three-year warrantee and even fully loaded now costs significantly less than the latest, greatest super nakeds, which puts a different slant on things. It’s now a bargain and ridden in isolation still a machine that delivers so much, whether you want to tear up a trackday, tour around Europe or just have fun on a silly, sunny Sunday morning.
