BMW Motorrad has announced new blacked-out colour option for the BMW S 1000 RR, along with updates to meet the Euro 5 emission regulations. Along with the updates, the new BMW S 1000 RR also gets a new paintjob, called black storm metallic. The only dash of colour is on the vivid red 'RR' decals on the fairing. The new black colour option features all-black bodywork on the bike, including a black subframe, as well as plastics, and will replace the racing red non-metallic colour scheme of the base model of the BMW S 1000 RR. The Hockenheim silver colour shade will be the other base option.
