MCN Senior Editor Matt Wildee is in Spain, testing BMW's new S1000R Sport. The German supernaked has received a host of changes for 2017, including a new, lighter chassis, revised electronics which include lean-angle-sensitive ABS and traction control, plus a bi-directional quickshifter which allows clutch-less downshifts.

There is also a new exhaust system with a titanium Akrapovic can to help pass Euro4 noise and emissions regulations.

TOP STORIES

The changes amount to a 2kg weight loss, plus a gain of 5bhp in top-end power, meaning the bike now has a claimed 165bhp. BMW have also made efforts to reduce vibration to the bars and offer their lightweight cast ally HP wheels as an option, too.

We get to ride the bike tomorrow (Monday) in the mountain roads around Almeria, so check out this website and our social media for updates, plus pick up Wednesday's MCN for the full verdict.
