BMW S 1000 RR Highlights
BMW Motorrad has launched the S 1000 RR in India. It will be offered in three variants - Standard, Pro and Pro M Sport priced at Rs 18.5 lakh, Rs 20.95 lakh and Rs 22.95 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) respectively. The 2019 iteration gets an all-new design and sharper bodywork. It now gets a twin-LED headlamp setup and the tail lamp has been integrated into the rear turn indicators.
Aside from this, the bike comes equipped with a Bluetooth-enabled 6.5-inch colour TFT instrument console, a new twin-spar aluminium frame, subframe and a WSBK-inspired swingarm. It also sheds a total of 11kg compared to the previous model thanks to a lighter engine, chassis and exhaust system.

The BMW S 1000 RR is expected to be priced at Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom) and will go up against the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R (Rs 14.3 lakh), Honda CBR1000RR (Rs 16.43 lakh), Yamaha R1 (Rs 19.67 lakh) and the Ducati Panigale V4 (Rs 20.53 lakh).
