The BMW S1000 RR roars onto Indian roads
The BMW S1000 RR is officially on sale in India. To reaffirm just how serious BMW Motorrad is about the Indian Market, they have launched their flagship not just as a standard, but in every trim they have on sale globally. The standard 2020 S1000RR comes with a floor price of `18.5 lakh ex-showroom, while the Pro variant with more track-tune will set you back by a about `20.95 lakh. The top-shelve Pro M-Sport which is basically a WSBK motorcycle with rear-view mirrors and turn-indicators will set you back a full `22.95 lakh. Of course, all of these prices are sans-taxes, insurance and registration duties. Considering that BMW will bring these bikes to India via the CBU route in the initial phase, the prices are still quite competitive. The BMW S1000 RR will take on the likes of the Ducati Panigale V4. The S 1000 RR is now in its second generation since BMW, launched its flagship Supersport way back in 2009. While it may share the silhouette with the original, the S1000RR is an all-new machine, with 204 bhp of power kicking in at a stratospheric 13,500 rpm and twist-force of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm. All of which is being pushed through a motorcycle that is now a whole 11 kg lighter.
