JAMMU, June 28: BMW Motorrad has launched the all-new BMW S 1000 RR superbike in India at Rs 18.5 lakh (ex-showroom) for the standard variant. Above the same are the Pro and Pro M Sport that has been priced at Rs 20.95 lakh and Rs 22.95 lakh respectively. It will arrive at our shores as a completely built-up unit (CBU) and can be booked at BMW Motorrad dealerships from today onwards.
Dimitris Raptis, Head of Asia-Pacific, China, Russia, Africa, BMW Motorrad said, “No other bike can be a more authentic interpretation of the sports world than the BMW S 1000 RR. In 2009, we made a big entry into the market of high-performance sports bikes with the launch of the BMW S 1000 RR. It became the leader in its segment almost overnight and since then has set the benchmark in the field of performance sports bikes. For the all-new 2019 ‘Double R’ our goal was simple ‘Make it even better’, and we did just that! Moving into its third generation, the BMW S 1000 RR has been enhanced in all disciplines. It is now lighter, faster, more uncompromising and more easily controllable than ever before.”
The all-new ‘Double R’ features lower weight, completely newly developed chassis and suspension, lights, dashboard, design and a new engine with BMW ShiftCam technology. The all-new BMW S 1000 RR is the first motorcycle to feature an M package, a combination of the power of M with Motorrad.
Dr Hans-Christian Baertels, President (acting), BMW Group India said, “The BMW S 1000 RR led to a revolution in the supersport motorcycle category right from the outset. In the time since the bike continued to be developed, it’s tried and the tested concept was being honed even further and the latest innovative technology was added for greater dynamics. Because of its impressive power and performance, one constant factor remains: it is still a trailblazer today! Whether in everyday use or for high-performance race track riding, the all-new BMW S 1000 RR leaves nothing to be desired and allows you to experience its performance with greater intensity and immediacy than ever”.
The all-new BMW S 1000 RR is available in two colour options—‘Racing Red’ and ‘Light White / Lupin Blue Metallic/ Racing Red’. The M-package on the new S 1000 RR sweetens the deal with features such as carbon fibre wheels, M lightweight battery and M Sport seat. The Dynamic package, on the other hand, boasts practical equipment features such as the latest generation of the electronic Dynamic Damping Control system, heated grips and cruise control functions.
