AC Schnitzer S 1000RR
AC Schnitzer tweaked the BMW S1000RR. It’s not
often you can look at a new 1000cc superbike from an aftermarket tuner and
realise they have made it more comfortable and a little more practical, but
that’s exactly what German BMW tuning masters AC Schnitzer has done.
AC Schnitzer has been fettling BMW for years and the S1000RR is the latest
machine to be tweaked – just not in the obvious performance enhancing ways. The
biggest change is the fitment of new adjustable handlebars and yoke which swop
the clip-ons for a straight bar and have an adjustable clamp.
The AC Schnitzer bike has new brake and clutch levers, a carbon fibre exhaust
silencer, crash bungs, performance air-filter and a numberplate hanger.
"Avoid Silence“ - the phrase perfectly describes the S 1000
RR by BMW. With its loud roar, it has turned the Superbike world inside out.

AC Schnitzer S 1000 RR
Sporting yet comfortable describes the new Superbike handlebar conversion by AC
Schnitzer. Totally in black, it harmonizes perfectly with all BMW colours. The
Superbike handlebar conversion includes everything necessary for installation,
designed for the standard equipment level of the S 1000 RR. To match, there is a
new brake fluid reservoir which is a real eye-catcher with its striking filigree
New aspects at the rear entrance the observer both visually
and acoustically. For the road, there is the AC Schnitzer STEALTH silencer with
EC approval, which gives the AC Schnitzer S 1000 RR Avoid Silence the final
visual and acoustic finishing touch. Its matt black surface and carbon cap
ensure it harmonizes perfectly with the overall aesthetics - and it weighs in at
just over 1 kg.
A better view of the rear wheel is possible thanks to the stable stainless steel
registration plate holder which bolts onto the standard support. Without
registration, it fulfils all requirements for legal fitment and can be used both
with standard flashers and most accessory components.
One totally new development is the AC Schnitzer crash pads, which with an
innovative 3D design not only effectively prevent drop damage but also fit
perfectly into the design language of the BMW Superbike.
Perfect control and stylish design are provided by the adjustable AC Schnitzer
brake and clutch levers. Made of high strength aerospace aluminium, they have a
wide adjustment range to ensure the perfect grip even for small hands. The shade
is called Titanium, and perfectly suits its refined finish. These approved
levers are available in a short version as well as the original length.
As for all BMW models, the S 1000 RR can also be fitted with adapters for larger
mirrors to ensure good rearward visibility .... but who would be coming from
