As compared to its first generation launched a decade ago, the 2019 S1000RR makes eight more BHPs, bringing up the total to 207BHP.
Months after BMW Motorrad unveiled the third generation of their flagship S1000RR at EICMA in November last year, the company teased its release in India with a tweet.
Thanks to the "M Performance" package, the bike is loaded with features such as carbon fibre wheels, a lightweight battery pack and rear ride height adjustment, among others. As compared to its first generation launched a decade ago, the 2019 S1000RR makes eight more BHPs, bringing up the total to 207BHP. That, combined with its reduced weight of 197 kg from the original 208 kg, gives the bike a better power-to-weight ratio.The bike is mechanically updated as well and now has a 6.5” digital screen, in place of the semi-digital console earlier. The iconic “alien-looking” asymmetrical headlamps are also replaced with twin LED headlights and the tail lamp gets a LED makeover as well.

BMW has also endowed its latest ShiftCam technology in S1000RR's engineering, which takes the bike from standstill to a 100 kmph in three seconds. The suspension setup has also been redone completely. The bike can be ridden in four different modes– Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race, which are available as standard. An optional Pro Mode is also available which further customises the riding experience.
