Check out Jeff's track test video review on the all-new 2019 BMW S 1000 RR, held at the Estoril Circuit in Portugal... Video: Jeff Ware, Steve Martin

Jeff headed to Portugal last week to ride the all-new (every single part is new) 2019 BMW S 1000 RR at Estoril Circuit. Three 15 min sessions plus a warm up gave The Ed the chance to sample the bike on the OEM S21 tyres and on slicks as well as sample the electronics just enough to get a feel for what the bike has to offer and it is impressive.


A full technical breakdown and ride impression will be up shortly, followed of course by a more in-depth review once we get our hands on a bike Down Under and can test it to the full potential. For the moment, please enjoy some laps with Jeff and BMW test rider, ex 250 GP hero Jurgen Fuchs…
