BMW S 1000 RR for the FIM EWC

The #37 BMW S 1000 RR for the FIM Endurance World Championship is based on the RR that has been racing in the FIM Superbike World Championship since 2019. Various areas of the bike have been modified, as far as permitted by the FIM EWC regulations, for its outings on the endurance circuit. For example, the RR for the FIM EWC has a larger tank with the maximum permitted capacity of 24 litres, as well as a rapid refuelling system. The front cowling has been modified and the production headlamp from the BMW S 1000 RR integrated. New axle and axle guide systems allow the wheels to be changed quickly during pit stops. Furthermore, components including the handlebar and footrests have been made particularly robust to avoid damage in case of a crash. Should it come to it, they are designed to be removed and replaced as quickly as possible. The electronics have also been modified, for example, to optimally manage fuel consumption and the lights. The electronic instrument cluster has been adapted to meet the demands of the FIM EWC and now has a level indicator, among other things.
