History

BMW created its first horizontal opposed twin engine in 1920 and first offered it in a production model with the R32 of 1923. In the seventy years since, BMW has stood staunchly behind this style of engine layout The opposed design offers buttery smooth performance as the engine has inherently good balance. But by the late 1980s, BMW's line of R models had fallen far behind the times. Something new was needed. Enter the revised Boxer engine for the 1990s.

The Modern Boxer

BMW first began work on its new Boxer in early 1986. With typical Teutonic thoroughness, the firm's engineers revised and retested every component until they had it right. When the new R1100S was first shown to the BMW faithful, the company knew it had hit the mark with a bull's eye. Here was a reworked version of the venerable Boxer with a full 1100cc, fuel injection, four valves per cylinder and air and oil-cooling,

ABS II and Telelever Front Forks

The Rl100RS was the first motorcycle to offer the second generation of anti-lock braking systems. The new fork design, called the Telelever, offered an innovative monoshock front swing arm design. Suddenly BMW was challenging the likes of Bimota's Tesi and Yamaha's GTS1000 RADD with radical front end technology. The new generation of BMW motorcycles had arrived. And it was well worth the long wait.


Engine

The engine was a air cooled two cylinder boxer, four-stroke. A 99.0mm bore x 70.5mm stroke result in a displacement of just 1085.0 cubic centimeters.

Drive

The bike has a 5-speed transmission. Power was moderated via the dry, single plate.

Chassis

It came with a 120/70-zr17 front tire and a 160/60-zr18 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via dual disc in the front and a single disc in the rear. The front suspension was a BMW Motorrad Telelever while the rear was equipped with a BMW Motorrad Paralever. The R1100RS was fitted with a 6.08 Gallon (23.00 Liters) fuel tank. The bike weighed just 476.2 pounds (216.0 Kg). The wheelbase was 57.99 inches (1473 mm) long.
