IT’S OFFICIAL!!

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.
