Technically, the BMW S1000XR now also offers everything that is currently available in assistance systems. The 6-axis IMU from Bosch checks the inclination, controls the front wheel and controls both traction control and the curve ABS. For details, please consult BMW's website, this would go too far.
We also find it worth mentioning the still small 17 inch front wheel, which emphasizes the sporty character of the XR. Due to the lower gyro forces, this machine can be placed a little more jagged in curves than "real" adventure bikes with 19 inches or even larger rims.
Operation, cockpit and control elements are no problem for all BMW changers. All buttons are sorted in a BMW-typical way and the display also works exactly as .B with a GS. In addition to Keyless Go (incl. small tank compartment) our machine also had LED auxiliary headlights, cornering light, tyre pressure control, cruise control and a quick shifter that works butter-soft on the S1000XR. Newcomers from other motorcycles have to get used to the many options of the menu, but after a short acclimatization time it works quite well.
