The windscreen has also been lengthened to promote better wind deflection. As for the LED headlight assembly, it retains the sleek design of the previous model.

BMW has gone far beyond styling changes to attract new customers, with significantly revised chassis and engine changes under the skin. BMW has added more holes to the four die-cast alloy members that form the chassis, allowing the new bike to flex more than the previous one. The new frame keeps the general design of the old bike, including tailored flexibility.

Color of BMW S 1000RR

In the 2023 S 1200 RR color scheme, there are three individual characters: Black-storm metallic, light white non-metallic, and Style Passion in Racing Red.  Covers for the alternator and clutch are black on all three paintwork finishes.

In addition to Rain, Road, Dynamic, and Race modes, the 2023 BMW S 1000 RR also offers Pro race modes. There is also Hill Start Control Pro and Shift Assistant Pro as options on the 2023 BMW S 1000 RR.

Slide Control Mode: The Slide Control function is new for 2023, which uses a steering angle sensor to drift while accelerating.

Steering Angle Sensor: Using the same steering angle sensor, the 2023 S 1000 RR also adds a Brake Slide Control feature that allows the rear wheel to drift further out of line under braking before being tamed by Anti braking system or ABS. Track riders can take advantage of the new Slick ABS setting on the S 1000 RR, which works with race oriented tires.

A similar feature to Slide Control, Brake Slide Assist works by detecting steering angle. The rider can set a specific drift angle for driving into corners while maintaining a speed while braking drifts are performed.

The front brakes use 320mm discs and two radically mounted 4 piston fixed calipers, while the rear brakes use a 220mm disc and single-piston floating caliper.

Shift Asistant Pro: Shift Assistant Pro has also been updated to provide improved gear changes, and a reversed shift pattern is available for racers and track rats to utilize.

Dynamic Traction Control: Dynamic Traction Control is also standard. There are two standard throttle maps on the new S 1000 RR that adjust the throttle response and drive torque as well as the ride mode.

Pro Mode: DBC Dynamic Brake Control is an optional Pro mode, but ABS Pro is now standard, preventing wheels from locking even when braking hard while leaning.

In terms of weight, they are not quite as large as those used on the homologation special M 1000 RR, which can handle as much as 36 pounds, but they are large enough to keep the standard S 1000 RR competitive with its winged rivals from Japan and Italy.
