We have a brand new, bouncing baby S1000XR
« on: September 25, 2015, 02:45:49 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that Powerbronze have a brand new, bouncing baby S1000XR.

We have just bought one from our local BMW dealer to go into our project bike collection.

The bike is the same colour as the one we used for our most recent product photos (in fact it might even be the same one). Here is a photo :



Do you have any suggestions for products that you would us to consider developing for the bike ?

We have already developed the following items for the S1000XR:

Standard Screen
Flip Screen
Rear Hugger
Carbon Fibre Front Mudguard
Front Mudguard Extender
Oil Cooler Grill
Radiator Grill (coming soon)
Swing Arm Protectors
Fork Protectors

All the best,
Richard

Nice one, Richard. :047:

Personally, I would like a better chain guard, and a larger bellypan; one that hides the ugly cat.

Any thoughts?

Well until I find out anything from our development team, I cannot say, but you never know.

The bike doesn't look as good as it did in the photo at the top of the page as it was returned to standard before it went back to the dealer following our photo shoot, so we have got work to do to put it back to Powerbronze standard  :001:

Keep the suggestions coming.

Have a good weekend.

Richard

Don't if you do luggage but this bike needs a SMALL aluminum tope case that fits the rack mount. Evena small plastic would do. Something for paperwork, s set of gloves and maybe a long sleeve...Don't need that huge case for a sports ride.

I use a Kreiga US5 for that sort of thing. Cheap, waterproof, and you can hardly notice it's there. :028:

I agree, I have several but they are not secure when you park the bike. Great for other uses.

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately, luggage is not something that Powerbronze do.

I'm not sure what we have planned for the bike at the moment except for fitting it up with all of the stuff we have already developed.

All the best,
Richard

And you don't need to, there are loads of options out there already!

I'd like to see a carbon fibre replacement for the panel running to the front of the tank with the BMW badge.
