Expect the updated BMW S 1000 RR range to start from ₹20.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
The 2023 BMW S 1000 RR, the upcoming superbike from BMW, will have its domestic debut on December 10. It is powered by a 999cc inline-four engine, which now produces 207bhp and 113Nm of maximum torque. It also features a slightly extended wheelbase, now measuring 1458mm as opposed to 1440mm.
The chassis of the BMW S 1000 RR has undergone the most extensive revision, which includes a number of alterations to its geometry. For instance, the manufacturer modified the structure of the frame to allow for more lateral flex. In comparison to the previous 23.1 degrees, the steering rake angle has been slightly adjusted to 23.6 degrees, and the triple clamp offset has been somewhat decreased. As a result, the trail has grown from 94mm to 99mm. All these modifications are likely to enhance its overall stability while making it a bit slower in terms of steering.
As mentioned above, the bike now has a 999cc inline-four engine with 207bhp and a constant torque of 113Nm, thanks to the changes like updated intake funnels and redesigned intake geometry. The older traction control system has been replaced by a slide control system, and the bike's computer will now enable the rear tyre to spin and step out to a certain extent before interfering. Similarly, a new Brake Slide Control feature has been added to allow the rear wheel to move further out of alignment under braking than was previously possible before ABS reels it back in.
