In 1994, at the International Bicycle and Motorcycle Show (IFMA), BMW launched the third version of the new four-valve boxer generation R1100R model as a successor to the R1100GS presented in 1993.

The bike received the engine and the raised exhaust from the BMW R1100GS, which were installed in the chassis that belonged to the BMW R 1100 RS and used appropriate road tires.

The front visual aspect was dominated by the floating round headlight, an individual instrument cockpit with a central speedometer, a rounded sheet steel fuel tank, and a narrow seat bench.

To complete the naked bike look, BMW engineers divided the oil cooler into two smaller oil coolers attached to the left and right above the cylinders.

The 1994 BMW R1100R, with the 1,085cc flat-twin engine, generated 80 hp with a peak at 6,750 rpm and 98 NM (72 lb-ft) of torque available at 5,250 rpm and with a curb weight of 235 kg (518 lbs), the bike registered a top speed of 197 kph (121 mph).

The powerful naked bike came with standard features such as a dual seat, pillion grab rails, die-cast aluminum wheels, dual 305 mm front disc brakes, a single 276 mm disc brake on the rear, a suspension package composed of a BMW Motorrad Telelever front suspension, and a Paralever rear suspension unit, an analog instrument cluster, and a high-mounted exhaust system.
