EVO brakes on 2001?

When did BMW upgrade the brakes on the R1100S to the EVO (non linked) brakes?

I am buying a used 2001 (early 2001 production) and am wondering how to tell if this bike has them.

Hey, I notice you are a local to me, I grew up in Edison actually. The newer brakes say BMW on them, the non-Evo brakes say Brembo on them. The bike should have a sticker saying "Servo-brake equiped" and you'll hear the servo if you turn the bike on and grab the front brake.

Are you looking in Cross Country?

Actually, I bought a used bike from a dealer in Florida. It is being delivered tomorrow.

The original owner titled in in November 2000, so it is an early 2001 production.

If I like the bike (had an R1150GS which I sold last year) I will wait for a "new" R1100S and buy a new one when they update the design.

I was a little concerned that the new "servo" brakes might be to grabby, so I opted NOT to buy a brand new bike this time. I saved a bunch of money this way too!

Hi jfrocke,

they started delivering the S with EVO and ABSIII in late March 01. I got mine first week of April and it was one of the first production runs as I got mine simultaneous with a couple other guys from the german S board. so a bike delivered in November 00 cannot be an EVO one. Only the ABS model does have a servo installed. so the buzzing is not audible on a non ABS model. those just have the EVO calipers and larger discs. the caliper has a dark grey colour and shows the BMW logo as Erric pointed out and looks sleeker than the typical Brembo BMW stuff. the EVO disc diameter is 320mm versus 305mm.

I'm not sure, but I guess the EVO-brakes and ABSIII were launched simultaneously. I have not heard of a phase, where EVO-S were sold, with ABSII as an option?

bye

That is my understanding too Romain.
The ABSIII were introduced simultaneously.
Same press packet even. It would be nice
to have the newer brakes and calipers.
I'll have to admit I'm a bit envious.
