The partially faired motorcycle is technically based on the S1000R naked bike and is marketed by the manufacturer as an "Adventure Sport Bike".[6] After the fully enclosed sport bikes S1000RR and HP4 as well as the roadster S1000R, the XR is the fourth variant with the inline four-cylinder engine[7] and assembled at the BMW plant in Berlin. The production started on 1 April 2015 and went on sale on 13 June.[8]
