BMW S 1000 XR 2021
The automotive industry is slowly picking up after the spring covid crisis and preparing for an autumn flurry of new models, and companies start by outlining the composition of the 2021 lines in a framework, informing which models remain, which will return, and which will be discontinued.
And although in the light of the same crisis, many models remain unchanged, some companies take the opportunity to expand the choice of color schemes and trim levels. Apparently, BMW worked tirelessly during self-isolation, because the list of updates and new options is very significant. So pour some coffee and make yourself comfortable … Let’s go!
Updated BMW models for 2021
Most “updated” for 2021, BMW models have already been modified in recent years, or even the first ones appeared in the lineup. So the Bavarians made a bit of a marathon, slightly changed the stock configuration, added options and removed something. Yes, yes, you heard right: removed.
2021 BMW R 1250 RS gets new Austin Yellow Metallic color scheme with a matte black frame, while Option 719 Stardust, previously offered in some markets, is leaving the scene. Due to new European laws regarding ABS, the option to disable this system has been removed. Also, the sports-touring model will receive a new exhaust.
Driving Modes Pro Pack will also be available for RSwhich includes engine braking control and a Core Screen Sport dashboard mode. Several packages will be available where milled parts combine anodized black finish with silver – Option 719 Shadow and Shadow II, Option 719 Storm and Storm II: engine covers, valve covers, handlebar levers, footrests and foot levers, and more.
