BMW S1000 XR
TheÂ S1000 XR
Â is BMW's 'Adventure Sports' bike aims to rival the likes of theÂ Ducati Multistrada 1200
. The bike targets those riders who want the performance of a sports bike along with the comfort of a touring bike. BMW have a hugely popular sports bike in theÂ S1000RR
, boosted by its success at places like the Isle of Man TT and British Superbike Championship. TheÂ BMW R1200 GS
Â also has to be one of the biggest selling bikes, not just in the adventure market, but overall in motorcycle sales, helped of course byÂ Ewan McGregor's global adventures
Â on board a GS. The S1000XR has been designed to land somewhere in the middle of these two hugely successful bikes, drawing on the best bits from both to produce this all rounder which promises to be equally as successful as the two bikes it is based on.
S1000XR Tail Tidy
Evotech Performance have developed a Tail Tidy / Fender Eliminator
to drastically improve the look of the rear end of the S1000XR. The Tail Tidy has been carefully designed to blend in with the lines of the bike, whilst making sure the indicators and lights are clearly visible both with and without the panniers fitted. The seat release lock barrel has been mounted in a precision machined aluminium housing which, in turn mounts the secondary brackets that hold the licence plate and lighting peripherals.
As with all EP Tail Tidies, the parts have been design and manufactured in the UK from high grade aluminium, ensuring a perfect fit to standard mounting points and retaining the original wiring loom for plug and play installation.
The Evotech Performance 'no drill'Â main frame sliders
Â will ensure your bodywork is saved damage from any minor spills. Mounting directly through the frame and engine ensures a solid fixing point to place a bobbin head in the optimum position avoiding any hoses or fairings. The EP crash protection kit also includes our shock suppression technology (SST) which aims to reduce the initial impact load through the mounting points. Evotech Performance also have a full range of Spindle bobbins
and Paddock stand bobbins
to further reduce damage in minor spills.
To further protect your motorcycle, EP have also developed a set of radiator and oil cooler guards
incorporating our tried and tested hexagonal perforations which provide robust protection without compromising the efficiency of the radiator or oil cooler. Our guards have been proven on the road and on the track with Milwaukee Yamaha
winning the 2015 BSB Championship and the Valvoline Padgetts
having great success at the 2015 Isle of Man TT both trusting EP radiator guards to keep their bikes protected and running smoothly. Evotech Performance have a full range
of products for the BMW S1000XR including an Exhaust Hanger and Pillion footpeg removal kit, Bar End Weights and Mirror Extensions.
