Both the new BMW S1000RR, S1000XR have been updated with new paint schemes, features and fresh M branded equipment.
BMW Motorrad recently revealed the entire 2021 model line-up which also includes the new S1000RR and the S1000XR models. The company is referring to these updates as revisions for 2021.
2021 BMW S1000RR:
The BMW S1000RR is considered a benchmark in the supersport category of motorcycle and for 2021 the company has updated the bike with new ‘Black Storm metallic’ and non-metallic ‘Racing Red’ colours. The bike has also received Euro 5 certification, which means that the S1000RR will soon be headed to the Indian market as a BS 6-compliant model.
Some of the optional M division equipment on the S1000RR comprises M titanium exhaust system, M clutch lever protector, M milled parts package, M brake lever protector, M folding clutch lever, M folding brake lever, M engine protectors, M Endurance chain, M rider footrest system left/right, USB charging port and M GPS lap trigger. There is also an optional M GPS lap trigger which uses a GPS sensor. This function sends a signal to the instrument console for allowing the data-logger to trigger the lap timer/lap counter through GPS.
The company is yet to reveal the updated output figures on the bike. For the record, the previous model was known to draw power from its 999 cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which was responsible to delivering 200.8 bhp at 13,500 rpm and 113 Nm of torque which peaks at 11,000 rpm. The transmission option remains the same 6-speed unit.
