BMW’s updating its S 1000 XR adventure sport for the 2024 model year. Last overhauled during the 2020 model year, the S 1000 XR is an upright sportbike that goes up against bikes like Ducati’s Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak and the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+.

Editor’s note: We last test rode the S 1000 XR during the 2020 BMW S 1000 XR First Ride Review and 2020 BMW S 1000 XR MC Commute Review article and videos. We encourage readers to view this editorial to better understand the ins and outs of this model.

The S 1000 XR gets a slightly more powerful 999cc inline-four engine good for 170 hp, says BMW Motorrad.

The S 1000 XR continues to use BMW’s tried-and-true, 999cc inline-four engine as used in the S 1000 RR superbike. Sporting water-and-oil cooling, the inline-four wears a 16-valve cylinder head with BMW Motorrad’s ShiftCam.

ShiftCam modulates intake valve lift during acceleration. When the throttle is partially opened the standard camshaft phase facilitates added engine torque along with improved fuel efficiency. At higher rpm, the camshaft shifts into an alternative position allowing for extra lift and engine power output.

The Motorrad crew says engine output is up five points to 170 hp at the crank courtesy of more aggressive intake channels and fuel/ignition mapping. Claimed torque remains the same at 84 lb.-ft. at 9,250 rpm.

The S 1000 XR gets a new seat and the rear body panels have been reshaped for a more sporty appearance.

The ergonomics have also been tweaked with a reshaped and 0.4-inch-taller seat pushing seat height to 33.5 inches. As usual BMW Motorrad continues to offer three seat heights to better accommodate customers. The handlebar clamp is new and the rear body panels have been reshaped for a more sporty appearance.

In the electronics department the LED headbeams now benefit from cornering function as standard equipment. A proximity-based key fob, more powerful battery, and USB charging port are included as well.

Customers can also purchase BMW Motorrad’s light and strong carbon fiber wheels which substantially boost vehicle maneuverability and are a worthwhile upgrade. Base price increases $545 to $18,190 with a three-year warranty, including roadside assistance.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.

1967 FORD BRONCO CUSTOM SUV: Selling with No Reserve at the 2024 Scottsdale Fall Auction

This custom 1967 Ford Bronco underwent a full, frame-off restoration in 2020 that was completed in 2022. The frame and all components have been powder-coated in black. The body parts were media-blasted and coated top and bottom in LizardSkin for protection. The powerplant is a 351W with aluminum heads, roller rockers, mild roller cam, 10.25:1 compression and .40-over pistons. An Edelbrock Pro-Flow 4 fuel-injection system controls and monitors the engine components. It also features a CVF serpentine pulley system, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator.

The engine is backed by a C4 automatic transmission built to handle 400hp and includes Kevlar bands, Redline clutches, a 2,000-rpm stall converter and Dana 20T transfer case with twin-stick conversion. Power goes to a Ford 9-inch rear end with a Dana 30 front differential, WARN locking hubs and 3.50-ratio gears. It also features power steering and brakes (front disc and rear drum), new drive lines, a ceramic-coated exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, complete Painless wiring, a chrome tilt wheel, 2.5-inch suspension lift with 2-inch body lift, stainless-steel brake lines, six Bronco oil shocks with single steering stabilizer and a BorgWarner steering box with all billet components.

This SUV was finished in a new Bronco Area 51 Blue with the original Bronco Wimbledon White hardtop, roll cage, dash, grille and accessories, and rides on color-matched Ford steel wheels wrapped in Toyo Mud Country tires. The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling. It also features a Kenwood head unit with back-up camera, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and charging port, and sound going through two 6×9-inch and two 6.5-inch KICKER speakers paired with a 10-inch Fosgate subwoofer.
