Mr. Dimitris Raptis, Head of Asia-Pacific, China, Russia, Africa, BMW Motorrad said, “No other bike can be a more authentic interpretation of the sport world than the BMW S 1000 RR. In 2009, we made a big entry into the market of high-performance sports bikes with the launch of the BMW S 1000 RR. It became the leader in its segment almost overnight and since then has set the benchmark in the field of performance sports bikes. For the all-new 2019 ‘Double R’ our goal was simple – ‘Make it even better’, and we did just that! Moving into its third generation, the BMW S 1000 RR has been enhanced in all disciplines. It is now lighter, faster, more uncompromising and more easily controllable than ever before.”
The all-new BMW S 1000 RR features lower weight, newly developed chassis and suspension, lights, dashboard design and a new engine with BMW ShiftCam technology. It is also the first motorcycle to feature an M package, a combination of the power of M with Motorrad. The BMW S1000 RR is available in 2 colour options – Racing Red and Light White/Lupin Blue Metallic/Racing Red. The all-new BMW S 1000 R with M Sport package features carbon fibre wheels, M lightweight battery and M Sport seat. The Dynamic package offers electronic dynamic damping control system, heated grips and cruise control functions.
The all-new BMW S 1000 RR is powered by a newly developed 4-cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 999cc. The engine is now 4 kgs lighter and narrower, which improves both the handling and the ergonomics. It generates 152 kW (207 hp) at 13,500 rpm to deliver supreme level of engine power. It is fitted with BMW ShiftCam Technology that provides an excellent torque curve that is captivating even at low and middle speeds. The all-new RR is fitted with ABS Pro (Anti-lock Braking System), DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) and DTC Wheelie Function as standard. The optional DDC (Dynamic Damping Control) adjusts the electronic chassis optimally to the riding situation within milliseconds.
