The 2019 BMW S 1000 RR made its debut at the 2018 EICMA in Italy and will make its way to India sometime next year. Until then, you can ogle at the supersport motorcycle in this detailed photo gallery.
The new S 1000 RR gets symmetric, full-LED headlamps along with a revised and more compact design overall.
However the bike continues to sport the distinctive ‘fins’ on the right side of its fairing.
Underneath, the 2019 S 1000 RR sports a new 999cc, in-line four cylinder engine that produces 205bhp at 13,500rpm and peak torque of 113Nm at 11,000rpm.
The engine uses BMW’s ShiftCam technology which varies valve timing and lift and is 4kgs lighter than the unit on the previous model.
Overall, the 2019 S 1000 RR tips the scales at 197kg; 11kg lighter than its predecessor.
BMW is also offering carbon fibre wheels as optional accessory that drop the bike’s weight by an additional 3.5kgs.
The S 1000 RR rides on 45mm inverted forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. It is also offered with an optional semi-active suspension setup.
Braking is done by twin 320mm front discs and a single 220mm disc at the rear with cornering ABS as standard.
The electronics package includes a six-axis IMU, four ride modes, two-way quickshifter, wheelie control and traction control as standard.
There also is the optional Pro package which adds three ride modes, launch control and pit lane speed limiter.
The 2019 S 1000 RR gets 6.5-inch TFT dash which displays three modes- road, analogue and bar graph.
BMW is offering the bike in two colour schemes- red with black and the BMW Motorsport tricolour of white, red and blue.
