BMW M 1000 R launched in India
Around the same time last year, this motorcycle and its fully-faired sibling, the M 1000 RR, were both introduced internationally.
Mr. Vikram Pawah, President of BMW Group India, said, “The all-new BMW M 1000 R is the second M model from BMW Motorrad. This powerful superbike pushes you to the limit with its dynamic roadster characteristics and stunning performance. Its heritage stems from M racing developers and the racetrack. It is a motorcycle built for those who are driven by passion and maximum performance, ready to dominate the road.”
An inline, four-cylinder, 999cc motor with liquid cooling and 212bhp and 113Nm power the M 1000 R. A slip-and-assist clutch and BMW‘s ShiftCam technology are utilised in conjunction with a six-speed gearbox that is connected to it.
Speaking of features, inside the M 1000 R, you will find adjustable suspension at both ends. Additionally, a rear mono-shock is available with a 45 mm USD fork. If we look at the brakes, we can see that this motorcycle has ABS throughout. This will have a single 220 mm disc brake in the back and 320 mm twin disc brakes up front. The M 1000R has a six-axis inertial measuring unit, a 6.5-inch TFT screen, and adjustable throttle and engine braking settings.
