The 2021 S 1000 R continues to make an identical 162.2bhp from its 999cc inline four-cylinder mill, but it is now lighter than before. The S 1000 R has been priced starting at Rs 17.90 lakh (ex-showroom)
Subsequent to its global unveiling in November last year, BMW Motorrad has now introduced the 2021 S 1000 R in India. The naked offering is priced at Rs 17.90 lakh for the base trim. BMW Motorrad has also brought in the S 1000 R Pro and the S 1000 R Pro M Sport at Rs 19.75 lakh and Rs 22.50 lakh, respectively. All prices ex-showroom.
The S 1000 R gets an all-new design with the revised signature BMW Motorrad traits. At the front, the S 1000 R now gets a diamond-shaped headlight with LED DRLs right in the centre. BMW has also reimagined the fuel tank, quarter fairing, exhaust, and rear section of the motorcycle.
At the heart lies a 999cc inline four-cylinder motor, which is now Euro 5/BS6 compliant. The 2021 iteration of the S 1000 R makes 162.2bhp and 114Nm, the same as before. BMW claims that the 80Nm of its torque kicks in as low as 3,000rpm. The motorcycle gets three riding modes – Rain, Road, and Dynamic – which changes the characteristics and power delivery of the bike. BMW has also fitted the S 1000 R with cornering ABS and dynamic traction control. The naked roadster has been paired with a 6-speed transmission that comes with a slipper clutch. The transmission has been tweaked to offer longer ratios in the 4th, 5th and 6th cogs.
The suspension duties are performed by 45mm wrong-side-up forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The Pro trim takes the game a step further with the semi-active suspension. Stopping power comes from two 320mm discs at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear.
BMW has put in a lot of work in updating the Flex Frame and reducing the weight. The standard S 1000 R now tips the scale at just 199kg, and it can be further reduced by 5kg with the M package. Also, the Pro M Sport variant gets carbon wheels.
The feature list on the S 1000 R includes a 6.5-inch TFT display, full LED lighting, and an adjustable handlebar position. Optional equipment includes keyless ride, adaptive headlights, tyre pressure control, and more.
