With the yearly update, the bike has received some major changes in the form of fresher design and styling, new frame as well as engine. As seen on the latest S 1000 RR sports bike, the new S 1000 XR has also lost its previous asymmetrical headlamps.

Thanks to the new updates (including a 19% lighter swingarm), the bike has lost about 10 kg of weight over the previous year model.

For 2020, it has now also received the S 1000 RR's 999 cc in-line four-cylinder petrol engine. Needless to say, the engine has been tuned for a more relaxed riding and doesn't feature the ShiftCam or variable valve timing technology found on BMW's litre-class sports bike. It churns out 163 PS at 11,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 9,250 rpm. The engine comes hooked to a 6-speed transmission. The top three gears have been updated with longer ratios to better suit the highway riding.

The 2020 S 1000 XR features an electronically adjustable, semi-active suspension setup. It rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels, and is also available with optional spoked wheels.

As far as electronics are concerned, its feature list includes TFT screen, six-axis IMU, lean sensing traction control, cornering ABS, drag torque control, cruise control, bi-directional quickshifter, hill assist, and wheelie control. It also gets four riding modes such as Road, Rain, Dynamic and Pro.
