Introduced in late 1998 as a 1999 model, BMW brought an S-model back to the brand. Pushing 98 hp from the 1098cc boxer, the light(er) weight Beemer could break 12 seconds in the 1/4 mile and very nearly 140 mph. Telelever front end has inherent dive control, and low-maintenance Paralever swingarm encloses shaft drive. This second-year R1100S with optional paint has low miles and some nice upgrades.
For the R1100S introduction, BMW made many sport-related upgrades to their sport-touring package. While their family of touring bikes hangs the rear suspension directly from the transmission housing, the R1100S has a sub-frame providing much great rigidity to the chassis. The flowing design of the bodywork hides the underseat exhaust and an aluminum fuel tank holding almost 5 gallons. Carbon front fender and clip-on handlebars were first on a BMW on the R1100S. BMW pioneered development of ABS and debate continues of whether sportbikes should have it, but the triple Brembo disks on this bike appear to be ABS controlled, and who knows, it could make a save one day. This example has only 8,500 miles and the newly recovered seat has the cowling, also the nice touches of enlarged windshield, barbacks, clear signal lenses, and factory cover.
