I’m not a big fan of the looks of the new BMW S1000X. Having said that, when it was first launched, I wasn’t a big fan of the looks of my Multistrada either.
I also haven’t had the opportunity to test ride the S1000XR yet, but having tried the S1000RR I am pretty sure it is going to be a great bike. It has a fantastic engine and brakes so I’m guessing the rest should be pretty decent too.
I did however, by chance, park my MTS next to a S1000XR recently and thought it was the perfect opportunity to do a bit of a visual comparison between both.
