BMW Motorrad USA announced pricing and equipment lists for the five new and updated models in its 2015-16 lineup.  The 2015 F 800 R, R 1200 R and S 1000 RR should be on dealership floors in Q1, with the 2016 R 1200 RS following in early Q2.  The 2016 S 1000 XR should arrive in late Q2.

2015 F 800 R

A $650 price cut and introduction of more and better standard equipment gives this bike a $1,595 improvement in value over its predecessor. Weight is down to 444 pounds fueled and ready to ride and horsepower is up to 90 at 8,000 rpm. With low seat options, the F 800 R is agile, compact, and a good choice for smaller or beginner riders.

2015 S 1000 RR

Despite reconceiving and enhancing this motorcycle’s technology, the perceived value improvement over the previous model is just $50. Horsepower is up to 199 and torque peaks at 83 pound-feet; combined with lower weight (448.8 lbs ready to ride), the gap between this motorcycle and its competitors continues to widen.

2015 R 1200 R

A $150 price cut and improvement of the standard equipment give the venerable roadster a $945 perceived value over its predecessor. The air/water-cooled boxer puts out 125 hp and 92 lb-ft of torque, but still gets excellent gas mileage (estimates are about 60 mpg).
