BMW S 1000 XR bike launched today in India

Gurugram: German auto giant BMW today launched its new S1000 XR motorcycle in India which will cost Rs 22.5 lakh plus relevant taxes and charges.

The motorcycle sprints from 0-100 Km in 3.25 seconds and can achieve maximum speed of 253 km/hour as it generates a peak output of 170 hp (125 kW) at 11,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 114 Nm at 9,250 rpm, the company said in a statement.

The improved ergonomics make it easier for riders to manoeuvre the new BMW S 1000 XR on the road or on the race track, providing even better control, the company said.

It will be offered in the following color options: Blackstorm metallic, Gravityblue metallic (with Style Sports) and Lightwhite solid paint/Motorsport (with M Package).

The new bike model is fitted with a reworked in-line 4-cylinder engine that delivers even more impressive performance, with a flow-optimised geometry for the intake channels, according to a company statement.

It shares its in-line 4-cylinder engine with the S 1000 RR, providing a smooth and powerful torque delivery and a harmonious power characteristic that contributes to excellent rideability, the statement said.

The new BMW S 1000 XR now offers a seat height of 850 mm which can be lowered with an optional equipment – low suspension, low seat and provides more space by increasing the usable length and width of the seat, allowing for better adjustment of the seating position depending on the riding conditions.

The rear section now features new side panels and air intakes inspired by motorsports, giving it a more dynamic look.

Additionally, the radiator trim now has a textured surface, and the previously black-coloured “beak” fender is now painted in body colour.

Mr. Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The new BMW S 1000 XR is the ultimate symbiosis of long-distance capability and high-performance in a sport bike. Its four-cylinder in-line engine continues to impress as a superb source of power. Improved in all key areas, this motorcycle offers superior, sporty riding pleasure even if the journey is long. Chase as many bends as you like – you alone decide when the ride ends.”

The ex-showroom price of this bike model is Rs 22,50,000 and prices prevailing at the time of invoicing will be applicable, the company said.

Ex-showroom price (inclusive of GST and compensation cess) as applicable but excludes Road Tax, RTO statutory taxes/fees, other local tax/cess levies and insurance.

Prices and options are subject to change without prior notice, it said.

In order to provide even more freedom of movement, especially during high-performance riding on country roads and race tracks, the seat of the long-distance sports bike has been completely redisgned.

The front fairing and lighting system are defined by sharp edges. Combined with striking beading, they shape the overall line – aggressively and consistently to the finish. It’s no accident that the visually short tail is reminiscent of a sport bike.

The hinted snout, the high flyline, and the comfortable handlebars indicate an insatiable hunger for kilometres. The adjustable windshield means you can keep your eyes on the road, and the odometer, without your helmet shaking.
