THE BMW S 1000 RR WITH £2,250 DEPOSIT CONTRIBUTION.

THE SUPERBIKE OF SUPERLATIVES.

Always pushing to the limit and in search of the ideal line, you’ve got 152 kW (207 HP) underneath you. Unbridled power pushes your RR to the max – with a maximum torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm and a torque curve of at least 100 Nm over a range of 5,500 to 14,500 [rpm]. Ten years after the first generation of the RR first mesmerized the world of motorcycles, we’re now entering the next level of performance. We have revised almost every component of the RR – from the front to the rear. The result: less weight and noticeably higher performance. Are you ready for the pole position and for victory? The RR awaits you.

Designed for the pole position.

    On Sunday 25th July 2021 we saw the return of the historic Hoghton Sprint, one of the longest standing Motorcycle Sprint Events in Lancashire. Celebrating its 44th Year, there really was a sense of celebration with the competition being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. Hoghton Tower basked in the sunlight with the early cloud cover dispersing to create perfect conditions for all riders taking part.

    Amongst the riders were the team from Bowker Motorrad,  Stuart Green and John Nichol both racing their BMW S 1000 RRs performing well in the morning practice runs. 

    Both riders were relaxed and ready for the afternoon racing to kick-off, so when the call came into the paddock for all racers to mount their bikes, John and Stuart were confident of what the afternoon would hold for them.

    Stuart was first of the Bowker riders to take to the starting line, using the burnout board to prep his tyres before approaching the Marshalls North West start line stewards. John quickly followed up the 1/8 mile straight for the first of his attempts for the afternoon.

    Both happy with the results of all of their runs throughout the afternoon, it was time for Stuart and John to wait to hear the results.

    First to receive his result was Bowker Motorrad’s Head of Business John Nichol, claiming a trophy for third place in the Modern Superbike category. Stuart had to wait a little longer for his result, claiming the first place trophy for the same category, as well as recording the second faster time of the day overall.

    A great day was had by all riders and spectators, and we would like to give a special thanks to both Hoghton Tower and Marshalls North West for a fantastic day.

    AN HOMAGE TO ICONS.

    Their look is as distinctive as those who wear them. Their character as striking as you: The BMW Motorrad Heritage collection is much more than functional clothing – it combines the spirit of the casual old days with modern technologies.

    Made with love.

    The Heritage collection is made with the very same passion you take every curve with. The collection provides maximum riding enjoyment with its low weight, flexibility, and high wearing comfort.

    With regular wear, the leather components take on a nice patina that underlines the vintage look. This turns every piece into your own personal one-of-a-kind original that also stands for uncompromising quality. 

    Visit us in-store to view the Heritage Collection.

    Contact our clothing specialist Sophie for more information on any of our clothing range, or to book a personal appointment. 

    A Bowker Motorrad apprentice has negotiated a deal to donate a motorcycle engine to Preston’s College Motorcycle engineering department.

    When new, the 1250cc boxer engine would cost over £5,000. Now, thanks to quick-thinking Shannon Barton-Constable from Southport, the engine will be available for students to test their technical skills.

    Shannon, a level 3 motorcycle engineering student at Preston’s College, has been an apprentice at Bowker Motorrad on the docks in Preston for three years. She spotted the engine swapped from an iconic 2019 water-cooled BMW R 1250 GS in the workshop. That’s when she approached Motorrad managers with a proposition.

    Shannon takes up the story: ”Most of our theoretical learning at college comes to life when we have real life engines to interact with. When I spotted the engine had been removed, I wondered if there was an opportunity for the college and students to benefit. I discussed the idea with my manager. And that’s when he agreed to donate the engine.

    “It will be great to see the engine in the workshop at the college. I’ve been with Bowker Motorrad since 2019 so I’m lucky – I work in and around engines like this most days. But now, other engineering students can enjoy hands-on experience of a BMW motorcycle engine too.”

    Normally, engines would be recycled or broken up for parts for other operators in the supply chain. This decision to donate instead will mean more than 90 Preston’s College automotive engineering students each year will be able to apply their learning practically on the motorcycle engine. 

    Mike Franklin-Smith, work-based tutor at Preston’s College said: “Thank you to Bowker Motorrad for their donation and Shannon for her quick thinking!  Our students enjoy the very best of theoretical and practical training. But nothing can compare with getting your hands on the real thing.

    “The donation of the engine will enhance the learning experience for both current and future students. Better still, it further increases the reputation of Preston’s College as the number one choice for learners wishing to study motorcycle maintenance and repair.”

    This motorcycle maintenance and repair apprenticeship is ideal for students wishing to specialise in motorcycle repair and maintenance. The apprenticeship includes both theory and practical aspects covering the mechanical and electrical systems on motorcycles. 

    For Bowker Motorrad, aftersales manager Richard Rawlings said: “Well done to Shannon for spotting the opportunity! Throughout the Bowker Motor Group our relationships with local schools and colleges are very important to us. The engine we donated will offer students a hands-on experience with the latest performance engineering technology.”

    As we head into new Bennetts British Superbike Championship class, Bowker Motorrad are pleased to join the PR Racing team for a fifth consecutive year as a Team Partner. This season, the team are doubling their line-up as they head into their 20th anniversary, fielding the all-new BMW M 1000 RR with Joe Francis and new signing Brad Jones.

    The Liverpool-based team have retained Francis for a third season after he claimed the team’s top ten finish during last year’s campaign and now the Chester-based rider is aiming for further progression in 2021 with the new BMW Superbike.

    A seasoned pro, having been involved in the sport since the age of 9, Francis said: “This will be a fantastic opportunity to build on the consistent development from myself and the team over the last two years. Towards the end of the 2020 season, we really stepped up as we closed the gap and ran with the leading pack. I can’t wait to swing my leg over the new bike and start testing.”

    Brad Jones will complete the team’s Superbike line-up as he makes his debut in the class in 2021. The 22-year-old from Stalbridge has finished runner-up the past two seasons in the Quattro Group British Supersport Championship and is now keen to make the step up to the premier class.

    Jones said: “I’m very excited to get going, I know I have a lot of learning to do but that’s all part of the process. The excitement is really high for 2021 and get my first taste of the Superbike. At this stage of my career, stepping up into Superbikes and benefitting from all the team’s experience, is a great opportunity for me.”

    Team Principal at PR Racing, John Jameson on their anniversary season and their partnership with Bowker Motorrad: “As we enter our 20th year in the Superbike class, the team are really excited to be bringing another young talent on-board. With the continued support of Bowker Motorrad, BMW Motorrad UK and the rest of our team partners, we’re really looking forward to, and relish the fresh challenges the 2021 season will bring. This announcement completes our 2021 plans with four riders competing in three different classes across the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.”

    Bowker Motorrad are pleased to continue the partnership with PR Racing. John Nichol, Head of Business said: “We are proud to be in our fifth year working with PR Racing, more so as it’s their 20th year in British Superbikes. We are looking forward to seeing the new M RR Superbikes in action and wish all the team the best of luck with the 2021 season.”

    Bowker Motorrad look forward to inviting both riders along with their bikes down to the showroom in the coming months, giving Superbike fans a change to grab a glimpse of the new M RR.

    RACING LIKE NO OTHER. INTRODUCING BMW'S NEWEST MODEL.

    Your competitive spirit drives you. Your passion dominates and challenges you. The search for more defines every millisecond: pure motorsport. High performance, high-tech materials, the highest-quality workmanship and exclusivity down to the last detail: The BMW M 1000 RR is the first of its kind from BMW Motorrad.

    Its genes come directly from professional racing. The M RR and M RR with M Competition package offers pure racing technology for the highest performance demands in motorsport and for adrenalin-driven perfectionists on the road. Because #NeverStopChallenging is more than a promise. It’s a commitment.

    The assembly of the BMW M 1000 RR has been developed in sports racing and perfected for the road. For this purpose, we have increased the power of the four-cylinder in-line engine from the RR: For a higher torque in the mid-range. And we have increased the maximum speed by 500 rpm to 15,100 rpm. The titanium connecting rods are lighter, the rocker arms are 1.5 mm narrower, the airbox funnel has been shortened for better load changes: Millimetre work for milliseconds.

    In addition, there are 2-ring forged pistons with cross-ribbing and cylinder heads with new channel geometry and reinforced bearing brackets. Overall result: More dynamics and reduced mass inertia.

    For a shorter ratio, even the sprocket has been given a tooth and the chain itself and the wheelbase have also been lengthened. The anti-hopping clutch works without self-reinforcement – for the perfect launch control.

    The contact pressure also determines victory or defeat. The M winglets made of carbon generate a downforce of 16.3 kg. In combination with the high windscreen, you can convert more power into pure propulsion. Before the curve, in the curve, and when accelerating out of the curve. The front wheel pulls straight into the apex and the fork keeps contact with the ground; the DTC has to intervene less. And you save the wheelie for the finish line.

    Only what you feel will drive you forward. The chassis and geometry of the BMW M 1000 RR are trimmed for the racetrack. For more performance on the track and in the pits. The drivability, braking and starting pitch compensation provide more feeling for the front and rear wheel. Even on country roads. The longer wheelbase makes the M RR much more comfortable. The easily adjustable pivot point has been rescaled and enlarged. And the new rear axle – also thanks to the adapted brake piston – allows quick rear-wheel changes. This is where the pit lane meets your will to perfection.

    We have developed the best brake piston on the market for us. One result, three words: Best in class. We have optimised the fluid balance for greater pressure point stability. In addition to the standard brake pad, you can also choose a different one. This comes from the Endurance World Championship and is intended exclusively for the racetrack. Together with the ideally combined operating element and saddle, this results in maximum brake stability and feedback, as well as superb coordination with the RACE ABS. The M brake is therefore an ideal reference.

    For more information on the new BMW M 1000 RR, or to be updated on the official launch date, please complete the enquiry form on this page or call our sales team on 01772 767300.

    Tuesday 5 November 2019 – three all-new BMW Motorrad models have made their hotly-anticipated debut at the internationally-significant ‘EICMA 2019’ motor show in Milan.

    CHASE NEW HORIZONS: S 1000 XR.

    The new S 1000 XR combines athleticism and long-distance performance in perfect form – radically lighter, faster, and more versatile than before. Combining the powerful qualities and versatility of the BMW adventure range with exceptional sports performance, this dynamic fusion creates an energetic yet versatile riding experience.

    Derived from the S 1000 RR superbike engine, the inline-four packs a strong mid-range punch, producing an extremely linear torque curve for better rideability. With four riding modes as standard, a 6.5-inch TFT display and full connectivity, the new S 1000 XR delivers cutting-edge technology, comfort, and performance.

    THE DYNAMIC ROADSTER: F 900 R.

    Launched as the enhanced successor to the F 800 R, the latest model is the new sports roadster on the block, offering precise, dynamic and authentic riding pleasure.

    With greater emphasis on sports styling and aggressive design, plus substantial torque and 105 hp of linear power, the F 900 R boasts the capability to tackle everyday riding for sports riders and newcomers alike.

    Setting a technological benchmark in the middle-weight segment, the all-new F 900 R is available with a host of high-quality equipment including; Adaptive Cornering Light, Dynamic ESA, Riding Modes Pro, Shift Assistant Pro and Keyless Ride.

    HIGHER, FASTER, FURTHER: F 900 XR.

    The new F 900 XR is an adrenaline rush in touring form. Demonstrating completely unique performance, ‘XR’ stands for an uncompromising mix of sportiness and touring capability. Mastering the Adventure Sport segment’s key qualities, the XR offers unrivalled riding dynamics with comfortable GS-like ergonomics.

    The 895 cc parallel-twin engine produces a high-level of torque and, paired with a new underslung exhaust system, produces a resonant twin-cylinder rumble.

    Also available in an A2-licence variant, the F 900 XR is poised to bring the best of the sports, adventure and touring segments together in an exciting new motorcycle.

    To sign up for further updates on these new models ahead of the official launch, please complete the enquiry form on this page or call our sales team on 01772 767300.
