In 2002, the German motorcycle maker released the BMW R1100S, a sports-touring motorcycle created for those riders with zero compromises in performance but also wanted a comfortable machine.

The BMW R1100S was derived from the R1100RS model and debuted in 1998. It was the first BMW motorcycle that featured a clip-on handlebar, rear set footrests, and a removable passenger seat cover.

The bike packed standard features in the aesthetic department, like a half fairing with a windscreen, a one-piece dual seat with a passenger seat cover, an under-seat exhaust system, a single-sided swingarm, and five-spoke aluminum wheels.

The 2002 BMW R1100S was powered by a 1,085cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine, managed by a fuel injection system. It delivered an output power of 98 hp at 7,500 rpm and 95 Nm (70 lb-ft) torque at 7,500 rpm.

The bike's power was transmitted to the rear wheel through a six-speed manual transmission with a dry single-plate clutch and a shaft drive, pushing the motorcycle to a maximum speed of 219 kph (136 mph).

From top speed to a complete stop, the motorcycle relied on two 320 mm brake discs mounted on the front wheel and a 276 mm brake disc mounted on the rear wheel. The front ones were handled by four-piston calipers, while the rear one was engaged by a dual-piston caliper.
