2023 BMW S 1000 RR Launched At Rs 20.25 Lakh
With prices starting at Rs 20.25 lakh for the Standard model, BMW has introduced the S 1000 RR for 2023 in India. The Pro M Sport, which is the highest-end model, costs Rs 24.45 lakh, while the mid-range Pro variant costs Rs 22.15 lakh. This results in a variant-for-variant price difference between the 2023 model and the outgoing model of about Rs 50,000.
As more and more high-end superbikes get closer to the 220hp threshold, BMW was able to wring 3hp more power from the S 1000 RR, bringing its output to 210hp at an extremely high 13,750rpm. The same 113Nm of torque is produced at 11,000 rpm. Changes like redesigned intake shapes and updated intake funnels have made it possible for peak production statistics to grow.
Because of extensive modifications, the chassis can now bend more laterally. Simply put, the frame of the 2023 S 1000 RR is less rigid than the frame of the older model and, in theory, shouldn’t become unstable as easily. The longer wheelbase, now measuring 1,458mm, the more relaxed 23.6-degree rake angle, and the lengthier tail, at 99mm, all further improve stability. The new model should, in theory, be a little slower when it comes to direction changes while increasing stability as a result of all these modifications.
The electronics package has also undergone some modifications, adding riding aids that are considerably more track-focused. Slide Control, a new function of the motorcycle, enables the rear tire to go off course before cutting power. The ABS has also been modified with a new Slick mode and a new Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), which, after sensing a specific amount of deceleration, ignores unintentional inputs from the electronic throttle.
The 2023 BMW S 1000 RR now includes winglets for the first time, which is the most obvious change that has been made. The winglets on this car seem extremely similar to the race-replica BMW M 1000 RR, although they only produce 10 kg of downforce as opposed to the M 1000 RR’s 16 kg. The tail section has also been improved for a sleeker appearance and is now more aerodynamic.
The 2023 S 1000 RR manages to undercut nearly all of its competitors in the liter-class, with the exception of the 2023 Kawasaki ZX-10R, which is priced at Rs 15.99 lakh. While they are more potent than the Beemer, Italian rivals like the 2023 Ducati Panigale V4 and Aprilia’s RSV4 1100 series are also much more expensive. The S 1000 RR will start to be delivered starting in February 2023.
In addition to the 2023 BMW S 1000 RR, BMW has also introduced the XM and the M340i as two brand-new vehicles in India.
