According to BMW, the all-new 2019 BMW Motorrad S 1000 RR doesn’t just set new benchmarks, it defines them. The bike that is available in India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU), is faster, high on tech, lighter and more aggressive than before.

Design theory

The superbike has a sharp design, sleek and extremely sporty. The smart LED headlights lend the bike an aggressive look. The slim rear points towards the bike’s handling prowess, and a sculpted fuel tank completes the package. 

Power performer

Powering the machine is a 4-cylinder in-line engine. It is four kilograms lighter and more compact than its predecessor, which has led to improved riding. The engine puts out a whopping 207 hp at 13,500 rpm. 

Ride clean

The motorbike has a new Flex Frame, which means a leaner fuel tank and seating area which has improved support and knee grip. The two-wheeler also flaunts a newly developed suspension system and you also get four riding modes which include Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race. Buyers can also opt for Riding Mode Pro as an option that gives you three more riding modes. These allow you to tweak engine throttle response, traction control, wheelie control, and ABS Pro and Launch Control for those perfect starts!
