He added, “These segments contributed to much of BMW Motorrad’s success in 2020, and we are confident their new additions will continue to be widely-celebrated amongst motorcycling enthusiasts nationwide.”
The New BMW S 1000 RR – built to go beyond.
The latest variant of the iconic superbike arrives with a range of new features and a sportier appearance with the BMW M Package – an optional equipment now made standard to the variant, raising the bar for the superbike segment once again.
Available in three attractive exterior offerings: Hockenheim Silver, Blackstorm Metallic, and a combination of Light White, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing Red (BMW Motorrad Motorsport for M Package), the New BMW S 1000 RR also features LED technology for both the headlight and taillight, along with new LED turn signals as well.
The new variant is powered by the formidable water/oil-cooled 4-cylinder 4-stroke in-line engine with a capacity of 999 cc and a maximum output of 152 kW / 207 hp at 13,500 rpm, capable of a top speed of over 299 km/h. The New BMW S 1000 RR also features an increased torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm, consuming 6.4 litres of fuel per 100 km of travel. The new variant also arrives with the BMW ShiftCam Technology which varies the titanium valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side.
The new variant is equipped with four riding modes as standard – Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race, complete with the Riding Mode Pro. These riding modes also control functions such as the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and ABS Pro for increased safety when braking or in banking position, while the BMW Motorrad Integral ABS system provides an even higher degree of safety. Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) also equips the new variant as standard, along with Hill Start Control and the HP Shift Assistant Pro.
The instrument panel of the New BMW S 1000 RR features a 6.5-inch TFT screen that is linked to the Multi Controller on the left-hand handlebar panel. Individually tailored screen displays also offer different uses to the rider. The new variant is also equipped with Connectivity for convenient music playback and phone calls. When used in conjunction with the BMW Motorrad Connected App, riders can also easily access the riding statistics after every ride.
