Like rest of the BMW Motorrad's portfolio, the S 1000 XR is being brought to the country via the CBU (completely built units) route. The company has also started accepting bookings of the bike and deliveries should also commence shortly.

For 2020, the S 1000 XR gets some major updates such as heavily revised styling, new electronics, and updated mechanicals. On the outside, the bike has done away with the previous signature asymmetric headlamps which now make way for the sleeker symmetrical headlamps, which are LEDs. The latest version of the S 1000 XR also gets a 6.5-inch colour screen with Bluetooth connectivity and four riding modes - Road, Rain, Dynamic and Pro.

In terms of mechanicals, its sources power from a BS 6-compliant 999 cc inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. This unit has been mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It churns out 162 PS of maximum power at 11,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque which peaks at 9,250 rpm. BMW Motorrad has tweaked the gearbox with longer gear ratios for a more relaxed highway cruising.

The company is also planning to introduce an update to the G 310 R and the G 310 GS bikes very soon.
