BMW F 900 XR India launch: What to expect?

BMW Motorrad has confirmed that it will update its India portfolio with the launch of the new F 900 R naked roadster and the F 900 XR ADV sports tourer. Both motorcycles will be launched in India on 21 May 2020. Here we tell you what to expect from the upcoming new BMW F 900 XR.

BMW F900XR Headlamps

Design and Features

The new BMW F 900 XR will draw styling cues from the company’s litre-class ADV sports tourer, the S 1000 XR. Thus, the motorcycle will come equipped with a twin-pod headlight setup, semi-fairing design, adjustable windscreen, chiselled fuel tank and upright ergonomics. The feature list comprises of full-LED lighting and a Bluetooth-enabled 6.5-inch TFT instrument cluster.

Hardware

The motorcycle is built around a bridge-type frame that uses the engine as the stressed member. The road-biased character of the motorcycle is emphasised by its 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends. The shock absorption tasks are handled by 43mm upside-down forks at the front and a preload and rebound-adjustable mono-shock at the back. Braking department uses twin, 320mm discs with radially-mounted floating callipers at the front and a 265mm single disc with a single-piston floating calliper at the rear. The motorcycle tips the weighing scale at 219kg (kerb).

The F 900 XR shares its 895cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine with the F 900 R naked roadster. The engine on the ADV sports tourer is tuned to produce 104bhp of maximum power and 92Nm of peak torque. This motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox.

Ergonomics

The middleweight ADV sports tourer is aimed for touring, and it comes with relaxed ergonomics. The upright riding position is achieved through a flat, single-piece handlebar.

Price

The BMW F 900 XR will compete against the likes of Ducati Multistrada 950 and the Tiger 900 GT range. We expect the motorcycle to arrive in the Rs 12 lakh-Rs 14 lakh price range.
