BMW Motorrad has launched its first M spec motorcycle in the Indian market. The BMW M 1000 RR is launched in the country in two variants. The standard M 1000 RR is priced at Rs 42 lakh, and the M 1000 RR Competition carries a price tag of Rs 45 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom. The performance-oriented model will come to India via CBU (Completely Built Unit) route.
The BMW M 1000 RR draws power from a 999cc four-cylinder engine producing 209bhp and 113Nm of torque. The engine gets lighter pistons, valvetrain, rocker arms and con-rods. The motorcycle also gets a lightweight Akrapovic Titanium exhaust system. The M 1000 RR can sprint from standstill to 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds and can reach a top speed of 306km/h.
On the design front, the BMW M 1000 RR gets carbon-fibre winglets which improve the downforce on the front wheel. The improved downforce results in better high-speed stability, better grip and eliminates front wheel lift during aggressive acceleration. The motorcycle also gets a taller windscreen. The motorcycle is offered in two colours: Racing Red and Light White, Racing Blue Metallic.
The Competition trim of the M 1000 RR features an M GPS-lap trigger, pillion seat cover, passenger kit, Carbon Pack (M carbon front and rear mudguard, M carbon tank cover, M carbon chain and sprocket cover, M carbon upper fairing side panel) and M Billet Pack which includes M brake lever guard, M brake/clutch lever folding, M rider footrest system and M engine protectors.
The M 1000 RR gets a host of electronic riding aids, which includes riding modes (Rain, Road Dynamic, Race) and optional Race Pro riding modes. The Race Pro riding modes allow the rider to adjust parameters such as traction control, wheelie control, ABS, engine brake and ABS Pro. The Pro modes also come with launch control and pit-lane limiter.
