The styling is now sharper than before thanks to new panels but the superbike loses its trademark asymmetrical headlamps which became kind of iconic since the S 1000 RR was first launched in 2009. Instead, it now gets LED projector headlamps which look good but do not quite have the manic appeal of the older model.
