Like its engine, the S1000RR's chassis is utterly conventional, without Duolever, Telelever or Paralever. It's got chain drive even! The aluminum frame is made from just four pieces: the head tube, the twin spars and the swingarm-pivot bridge. Measuring 46mm, the Sachs fork is 3mm larger than the competition for greater stability under braking, which it needs with its dual radial-mount Brembo calipers grasping 320mm rotors. Sachs also provides the shock, which like the fork features 10 clicks of compression and rebound damping, all marked so there's no counting as you turn a screwdriver. Shock spring preload is adjustable via a threaded collar that's easily accessible, and eccentrics allow 10mm of ride-height adjustment. The lengthy, banana-shaped swingarm features extra-long axle slots to vary wheelbase, and the bolt-on subframe allows for easy replacement in the event of a crash. Claimed wet weight for the bike is 450 pounds (455 lbs. with ABS).
