BMW M1000RR India Launch: All you need to know

BMW Motorrad launched the M1000RR in India around seven months after its global debut. Now, the BMW M1000RR is a special motorcycle and here we tell you all you need to know about it.

A homologation-special The BMW M1000RR is based on the S1000RR and looks like a track-specced version of the latter. And it actually is. The motorcycle has been built as a homologation special for BMW’s WSBK bike. For the uninitiated, a manufacturer can race in the WSBK series only if a road-legal model (homologation-special) of the same bike is sold to the public.

First M Division motorcycle

An automotive enthusiast would surely be aware BMW’s M division. Usually known for their performance cars, the M1000RR is the brand’s first motorcycle development. 

Heavily revised engine 

Front View

To begin with, the S1000RR’s 999cc, inline-four cylinder engine has undergone heavy revisions. It now gets lighter connecting rods and rocker arms, shorter forged pistons, a tweaked intake port and a higher compression ratio. The M1000RR also comes with a titanium Akrapovic exhaust that has bumped-up the power to a mind-boggling 212bhp at 14,500rpm; up from the S1000RR’s 205bhp. The 112.4Nm of torque comes in at 11,000rpm.

Different hardware  

Front Disc Brake

The BMW M1000RR is the first model to sport M braking hardware. It includes twin 320mm discs at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear. The brand has also tweaked the 45mm upside-down forks while increasing the swingarm by 0.7 inches. Furthermore, the M1000RR features loads of carbon-fibre components and is 4kg lighter than the S1000RR. It also offers better aerodynamics thanks to the winglets that provide roughly 16kg of downforce at high speeds.

Feature rich!  

TFT / Instrument Cluster

As for electronic rider aids, the BMW M1000RR has all the bells and whistles like five riding modes, adjustable throttle curves, a launch control system, dynamic traction control, hill-start control, a pit-lane limiter as well as a 6.5-inch TFT instrument cluster.

Now, the homologation-special BMW M1000RR, thanks to its mental, track-focused character demands a heft price tag of Rs 42 lakh. In comparison, the price of the BMW S1000RR Pro M Sport was Rs 22.95 lakh.
