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.

Other key updates on the bike include a Bluetooth-enabled 6.5-inch TFT screen that replaces the semi-digital unit found on the previous motorcycle. The S1000R also gets similar rider aids as the fully faired counterpart. It gets three riding modes (Rain, Road, and Dynamic), ABS Pro, traction control system, and Hill Start Control as standard.

The bike sources power from a Euro 5/BS 6-compliant 999cc, inline-four cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. This engine has been rated to deliver 165bhp of maximum power at 11,000 rpm and 114Nm of peak torque at 9,250rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. It also features an optional Shift Assistant Pro bidirectional quickshifter. BMW claims an overall fuel efficiency of 6.2-litre/100km or 16.12kmpl from this engine.

Expected Price:

While the previous MY20 model priced from 16.70 lakh (ex-showroom), expect the new bike to be priced in the range of 17-19 lakh (ex-showroom).
