Editor's picks: BMW R1100S

Published: 13 October 2011

The BMW R1100S is now beginning to hold the timeless appeal of a modern classic, with classy sports-touring styling, VFR-like comfort and versatility plus typical BMW quality and residuals making for an attractive all-rounder.

The plush ride delivered by the Telelever/Paralever suspension set-up manages to avoid feeling vague. Whilst the BMW R1100S is no super-sharp sportsbike, it is smooth, predictable and pleasing to hustle along country A-roads.

Powered by the understressed 1100cc engine, the powerplant is pleasant, flexible and bulletproof, in addition to promising great longevity if looked after and regularly serviced.

Our pick of the R1100S currently for sale at mcnbikesforsale.com is this uncharacteristically loud metallic orange ’54 plate example that has covered 11,600 miles and has been fitted with a carbon fibre fairing and mudguard, belly pan, pannier frames, Remus cans, Clifford alarm and heated grips. £4495.
