BMW Motorrad is all geared up to launch the new 2021 S1000R naked sports bike in the Indian market later today. It was officially revealed last year. The updated S1000R bike is a direct rival to the likes of the newly launched Ducati Streetfighter V4 bike and also the Kawasaki Z H2.

The India-bound S1000R will be identical to the unit sold in the international markets. In comparison to its predecessor, the new 2021 model is a whole new motorcycle altogether. It features a full revamped exterior styling, new features as well as mechanical updates. It benefits from a newly designed front headlamp that takes inspiration from the 2021 BMW G310R and the F900R bikes. The frame and swingarm on the bike have also been sourced from the S1000RR.
