It has been pretty much a widely known fact that German auto maker BMW Motorrad has been busy with the development of a naked version of its much loved S1000RR superbike. The buzz is that the new bike could make its public debut at the EICMA Show that will be held in Milan later this year. We have already posted spy pics of the naked S1000RR on a couple of occasions and the bike has been spotted again.
The recent set of spy pics reveals some new details of the upcoming bike’s styling. The front end of the bike could come with “winking headlamps”. Hints of BMW S1000RR could be seen in profile of the upcoming naked bike. Even the end can looks like it is related to that of the S1000RR.
Details about the upcoming bike’s engine are still unknown. However, it may be noted that BMW Motorrad hasn’t always decided to de-tune the faired bike’s engine for the naked sibling. This means that the naked variant could get the in-line four-cylinder engine in the same state of tune in which it powers the S1000RR. The upcoming bike could weigh around 440 lbs and will have upside down telescopic forks at front, which would offer compression and rebound stage adjustment.
The bike will come equipped with ABS and traction control. Also, the bike will have an intake between its two headlights, which helps with creating a RAM effect for the airbox.
