If launched soon enough, you could buy yourself the safety motorcycle of MotoGP 2021. The motorcycle will come equipped with uprated mechanical components that intend on offering an improved power-to-weight ratio

Just when the 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R was launched in India at a tempting price - BMW motorrad India has confirmed the launch of its fully blown super-sport, M 1000 RR. The German motorcycle maker has hinted at the launch of the M 1000 RR on its social network handle, as well as listed the motorcycle on its official India website.

To put things in perspective, the BMW M 1000 RR is the highest  spec S 1000 RR motorcycle and gets BMW’s ‘M’ grade engine parts and components over the standard motorcycle - hence the name BMW M 1000 RR.

The M 1000 RR boasts a top-speed of 304km/h (higher by 6km/h over the standard model) and a 0-100km/h timing of 3.1seconds (claimed). The engine on offer is the same 999cc in-line four-cylinder unit as the standard S 1000 RR, but runs on a higher compression ratio of 13.5:1, as opposed to 13.3:1. The power figures are marked at 209bhp at 13,000rpm and 113Nm of torque at 11,000rpm. The power is sent to the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox and the M 1000 RR gets a tweaked final-drive to offer a close-ratio drivetrain.

The motorcycle also gets a sharper steering angle for improved agility. The M 1000 RR gets (lighter) M Carbon set of wheels shod with larger tyre over the standard model. With lighter components the M 1000 RR tips the scale at 191kg - 4kg lesser than the standard model.

The BMW S 1000 RR starts at Rs 19.5 lakh and the model that sits above, the S 1000 RR Pro is priced at Rs 21.4 lakh. Currently, the top-spec S 1000 RR Pro M Sport is priced at Rs 23.75 lakh and the M 1000 RR that will debut soon, could see a price tag between Rs 25-27 lakh. All the aforementioned prices are ex-showroom.

Earlier this month, BMW announced its fleet of safety cars and motorcycles for the 2021 MotoGP. The new M3, M5 and the M5 CS Safety Cars along with the BMW M 1000 RR will debut as safety cars (and motorcycle!) on March 28, 2021, at the Qatar MotoGP.
