R 1100 S Boxer Cup: Lane Motor Museum
2004 BMW R 1100 S Boxer Cup #ZB53419
1,085cc A61 Boxer Twin 98 hp @ 7,500 rpm
Lane Motor Museum
BMW’s first new sport bike since the R 90 S, the 1998 R 1100 S installed the oil-head boxer engine in a frame with major sections in cast aluminum attached directly to the Paralever rear swingarm. The S got BMW’s first clip-on handlebars and (on a motorcycle) ellipsoid headlights, plus an aggressive seating position behind aerodynamic bodywork. The R 1100 S spawned the one-make Boxer Cup racing series, followed by the Boxer Cup Replica with carbon fiber cylinder head covers, Öhlins suspension, and a shorter Paralever. The BCR seen here was purchased new by the Lane Motor Museum in 2004.
