If you enjoy the Resident Evil universe, you may have already seen at least the trailer for the latest installment of the series, namely Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. If not, you can find it below, and observe that cool BMW S 1000 XR that is featured in the film.
BMW Motorrad's first adventure bike, the BMW S 1000 XR, was the bike that took actress Milla Jovovich's character, Alice, for the ride of her life. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, which was recently released in theaters nationwide on January 27, is based on Capcom’s hugely popular video game series and is the final installment in the most successful video game film franchise of all time, grossing more than $1 billion worldwide to date.

Alice rides the adventurous, sporty BMW S 1000 XR as she must return to where the nightmare began—The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.

Fortunately, the S 1000 XR is Alice’s perfect partner for the ride of her life. Even at high speeds, the bike’s agility and dynamics remain steadfast. It’s a motorcycle that offers the dynamic performance of a racer, the upright seat position of an adventure machine and the endurance of a tourer.

The powerful, four-cylinder series motor delivers a huge 160 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 83 lb-ft at 9,250 rpm. But it's more than just the sporty thrills that impress with the S 1000 XR – the innovative technology also offers a high level of comfort and safety. The S 1000 XR comes with two selectable driving modes as standard − "Rain" and "Road" – allowing riders to adapt optimally to riding conditions.

The standard ASC (Automatic Stability Control) ensures a high level of riding safety based on optimum traction. In short, the S 1000 XR can do everything – from tearing along winding country roads to tours for two with full luggage.
