BMW has launched the 2019 version of its flagship motorcycle, the S 1000 RR in India. This is the third generation model of the supersport which made its debut at the 2018 EICMA motorcycle show. It is available in three variants viz., Standard, Pro and Pro M Sport. At a starting price of Rs.18.50 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR is around Rs.45,000 costlier than the outgoing model.

The all-new S 1000 RR gets both mechanical and design-wise upgrades. The updated model is now more stylish and sharper than before with its new panels and LED projector headlamps. It features a redesigned chassis which is a new twin-spar Aluminium frame and a lighter trellis sub-frame with compact fairings. Other upgrades include the Hayes brakes instead of the Brembos and a Marzocchi suspension instead of the Sachs-branded suspension.

The electronics package also gets updated with four standard riding modes - Road, Rain, Dynamic and Race. The higher Pro and Pro M Sport variants get three additional 'Pro' riding modes viz., RACE Pro 1, RACE Pro 2, RACE Pro 3. All the three Pro riding modes are equipped with features like launch control, pit-lane speed limiter. The updated S 1000 RR also features a six-axis sensor cluster that helps power the cornering ABS, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), wheelie control, engine braking control and even the hill-start control. BMW also offers its updated supersport with a 6.5-inch TFT instrument console and Bluetooth connectivity.

The engine powering the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR now uses BMW�s ShiftCam Technology, which allows variable valve timing (VVT) to offer better performance. The 999cc, in-line four-cylinder engine produces 206.6PS of power at 13,500rpm and 113Nm of torque at 11,000rpm and gets mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a standard up-down quickshifter. The power output is nearly 8.1PS more than the previous-gen model. Also, the new bike weighs around 11 kg lighter than the outgoing BMW S 1000 RR.

Priced at Rs.18.50 lakh for the Standard, Rs.20.95 lakh for the Pro and Rs.22.95 lakh for the Pro M Sport models (all the mentioned prices are ex-showroom, India), the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR will take on the likes of the Honda CBR1000RR, Suzuki GSX-R1000R and Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R.
