Though no performance or ergonomic updates for 2016 are expected, BMW Motorrad introduced a new color scheme for the S 1000 XR - Light white/Granite gray metallic/Racing red.
From BMW's press release:
"The sporty color Racing red highlights the fact that the BMW S 1000 XR draws its DNA from the BMW sports segment. The rich red tone is clearly distinct from the grained, matt black surfaces. Light white gives the sporty touring properties of the BMW S 1000 XR a modern emphasis. Here the BMW Motorrad corporate colour of white is supplemented in classic elegance with black fairing parts.
The new multiple color combination Light white/Granite grey metallic/Racing red draws on the attributes of both color configurations, giving the S 1000 XR a look which is sporty and dynamic yet refined at the same time. In the new color combination, the model inscription no longer appears on the side fairing parts but on the side areas of the fuel tank. The graphic elements continued across the entire motorcycle harmoniously round off this colour configuration."
