BMW Motorrad India teases M 1000 RR
The BMW M 1000 RR created quite a stir when BMW Motorrad announced its flagship track-bred machine last year. The M 1000 RR is the first motorcycle from BMW Motorrad to receive the "M" treatment and as you would expect, it is the go-faster version of the S 1000 RR. A homologation special, made in order to meet the FIM WSBK spec, the M 1000 RR is road-legal and boasts of being a lighter and more powerful variant of the S 1000 RR.
2021 BMW M 1000 RR will be priced around Rs 45-50 lakh
The M division has worked their magic on the S 1000 RR's 999cc in-line engine by giving it lighter pistons, connecting rods, rocker arms and valvetrain, and upping the overall output to 215PS. The advantages are seen in 0.4s quicker acceleration to 200kmph (and 0.2s quicker 0-100kmph times). An Akrapovic titanium full system, which saves a further 3.7kg, comes standard on the motorcycle. The rear sprocket has gone one tooth up for better acceleration, while the improved power and torque are concentrated around the 6,000-15,000rpm mark, giving the M 1000 RR a significantly stronger mid-range and top-end shove than the S 1000 RR - all of which shows its advantages on the lap times.
