BMW S 1000 RR has maintained its supremacy as one of the most respected motorcycles in the litre-class segment and its performance can put many of its rivals to shame. The German litre-class Beemer is due for a comprehensive update and if things go right, you can have a look at the new model by the end of this year. The latest renderings of the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR show that the design of the motorcycle will see some major aesthetic changes. One of the most notable though is the absence of asymmetrical headlamps and these have been replaced with dual projector units having uniformity.
