2021 BMW S 1000 R Launched In India At Rs 17.90 Lakh

The differences between variants of the S 1000 R are down to a couple of cosmetic and features added on the top-spec variant. This includes the improved headlamps with LED DRLs, bi-directional quickshifter, additional riding modes with Ride Mode Pro, keyless entry, heated grips and an engine cowl; among others.

Engine Specifications & Fuel Type
The BMW S 1000 R is powered by an in-line four-cylinder 998cc engine paired to a six-speed gearbox with a slip-assist clutch as standard. The engine is now 5kg lighter as compared to its previous iteration because of the lighter internal components used.

  • Peak torque: 114Nm @ 9,250rpm
  • 0 to 100kmph in 3.2 seconds
  • Top speed: 250kmph (electronically-limited)

BMW has reworked the 4th, 5th and 6th gear ratios on the motorcycle. This has resulted in enhanced power at lower engine RPMs with better acceleration.
