In 2001, the German motorcycle maker released the BMW R1100S, a sports-touring motorcycle derived from the BMW R1100RS. Except for color alteration, the bike remained unchanged from previous models, offering the same specifications.

The BMW R1100S was a sports or sports-touring motorcycle made 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 bike had installed standard features in the visual department, such as a half fairing with a small windscreen, a dual seat with a removable passenger seat cover, an under-seat-mounted exhaust system, a single-sided swingarm, and five-spoke aluminum wheels.

The front end was controlled by an adjustable BMW Motorrad Telelever fork with 110 mm of travel and two 320 mm rotors with four-piston calipers. The rear end was handled by an adjustable Paralever system with 130 mm of travel and a 276 mm brake disc with a dual-piston caliper.

The 2001 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.

All the power and torque were sent to the rear wheel through a final shaft drive and a five-speed manual transmission that pushed the motorcycle to 219 kph (136 mph).
