In 2000, the German motorcycle manufacturer released the BMW R1100S, a sports or sports-touring motorcycle addressed to those riders who wanted an occasional adrenaline rush in a well-behaved package.

The BMW R1100S was a sports or sports-touring motorcycle produced by BMW from 1998 until 2005 when it was replaced by the BMW R1200S. It was introduced 25 years after BMW's first sports bike, the R90S, and was the first BMW motorcycle that featured a clip-on handlebar, rear set footrests, and a removable passenger seat cover.

The 2000 model came in the same shape and form as the previous one, packing the same technical, visual, and performance specifications without any significant modifications whatsoever.

For suspension, the motorcycle packed an adjustable BMW Motorrad Telelever fork on the front with 110 mm of travel and an adjustable Paralever suspension system on the rear with 130 mm of travel.

As for the braking power, the bike packed two 320 mm rotors on the front and a single 276 mm rotor on the rear. The front ones were engaged by four-piston calipers, while the rear one was handled by a dual-piston caliper.

In the power department, the 2000 BMW R1100S took its muscles from a 1,085cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine that delivered an output power of 98 hp at 7,500 rpm and 95 Nm (70 lb-ft) torque at 7,500 rpm.
