A second teaser video has appeared on BMW’s social media channel, which all but confirms there’s a new XR sport tourer on the way for 2020.

With EICMA less than two weeks away, BMW’s been ramping things up to get punters excited about its next generation motorcycles – and with the recent release of a couple of teaser videos, we’re feeling confident that one’s going to be a new XR sport tourer.

Rumours suggest there might actually be two different versions of BMW’s XR for 2020. We’re expecting an update of its 1000cc machine, in addition to the introduction of a new F 850XR – which we’ve been telling you about for close to a year.


The teaser video doesn’t give a huge amount away about the new bikes – but with some crafty pausing and a bit of patience, we’ve managed to glean a few interesting things about the new bikes. We’ve spotted a chain drive – which would make sense for the smaller capacity F 850XR – a radial mounted front caliper, a sporty back wheel and tyre combination, a front fairing and hand guards. And it looks remarkably like the bike our spy snappers caught on camera back in December last year.


Thankfully it looks like we’re not going to have to wait too much longer for the inside scoop on the new BMW XR, with the EICMA show just over a week away. We’ll be bringing you the latest and greatest breaking news from the show, but if you want to go straight to the source and visit the BMW website, click HERE.
