Minimal exterior upgrades should be available for the 2023 BMW S1000RR. In the teaser, the bike’s profile is highlighted by the muscular bodywork and twin LED headlamps.
The output of the revised model will reportedly remain unchanged from the current 999 cc inline 4-cylinder engine. The engine’s current setup allows it to produce 204 BHP and 113 Nm. Alternatively, the 46-tooth rear sprocket on the old bike might be replaced with a 45-tooth one on the new one.
It’s hard to think that it’s been nearly 15 years since BMW debuted the S1000RR, the company’s first four-cylinder superbike and that the current model, with its unique-in-class ShiftCam variable valve timing and lift technology, is nearly four years old.
Given these timelines, it’s not hard to imagine that a new and improved S1000RR will be introduced in the coming months.
There has been no official statement from BMW, but we have seen documents that reveal some of the changes we can expect from the machine, such as an increase in power and chassis alterations that take cues from the higher-spec M1000RR homologation machine.
The 2023 BMW S1000RR Has Been Unveiled
New to this version of the bike is improved aesthetics, functioning, and features. Let’s explore it in more detail to find out what it has to offer. Neither the look nor the ethos of the BMW S1000RR has altered much for 2023.
This means that the aggressive front fascia that houses the split LED headlamps is also retained, making for a vehicle that is both stylish and ready for the racetrack. BMW, however, has made the front winglets a standard feature on even the entry-level model.
Typically, these add-ons provide around 10 kg of downforce, which helps to keep the vehicle’s front end from swaying. Additionally, the windscreen is now longer for a more secure fit. The swingarm also features a new pivot that can be adjusted to suit the rider’s height and comfort preferences.

Subtle changes have been made to the back end of the S1000RR, and the rear sprocket now has 45 teeth instead of 46. Similarly to the above-mentioned increases in performance, the Bavarian supersport also benefits from increased horsepower.
Accordingly, the 999 cc inline four-cylinder motor with BMW’s ShiftCam technology now produces 206.7 horsepower, up from the previous 204.7 bhp. Small changes, such as using the M1000RR’s wider intake ports, led to the improvement.
