The introduction of the New BMW S 1000 RR sets a new benchmark for the superbikes in the Malaysian market, with updates that further raise the bar in the segment since the model’s debut in 2009.
BMW Motorrad Malaysia today unveiled the highly-anticipated New BMW S 1000 RR, which introduces an array of exhilarating enhancements that reaffirms its position as the superlative superbike.
Hans De Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “With the introduction of the New BMW S 1000 RR, we mark yet another thrilling milestone in BMW Motorrad’s rich legacy of engineering sporty, dynamic motorcycles. Intrinsically tied to the racetrack, every aspect of this superbike has been precisely designed with the clear goal of getting the most out of each lap, making it a natural favourite for riders with a penchant for pursuing pure, exhilarating performance.”
He added, “By streamlining and evolving the design where it matters most, the New BMW S 1000 RR is now even more focused to meet the needs of those that constantly demand more out of themselves and their machine. Embodying the spirit of high-performance racing, we are confident that the superbike will continue to inspire riders that embrace challenges fearlessly and persistently. With the New BMW S 1000 RR, we invite riders to #NeverStopChallenging and to unlock new realms of exhilaration on the track and beyond.”
Setting a new benchmark in the superbike segment, the New BMW S 1000 RR stands as one of the highest performing models from the BMW Motorrad portfolio. With a legacy that stretches back to its debut in 2009, the latest iteration of the BMW S 1000 RR series raises the bar even higher for the segment, by introducing a range of comprehensive innovations to its engine, suspension, chassis, aerodynamics, design, and assistance systems. All this has been driven with one clear goal in mind – claiming the pole position over and over again.
Power and precision at every corner.
Similar to its predecessor, the chassis of the New BMW S 1000 RR is welded in an aluminium bridge frame which integrates the engine in a 32-degree incline forward. With the aim of optimising flexibility laterally, the main frame of the New BMW S 1000 RR has been enhanced with several openings in the side areas. Besides that, the steering head angle has been flattened out by 0.5° and the offset of the triple clamps reduced by 3 mm. This new chassis geometry is accompanied not only by even better riding precision, but also by increased accuracy and clearer feedback from the front wheel. Additionally, the front and rear sections, as well as the winglet have also been redesigned to increase the aerodynamic performance and sportiness of the motorbike.
At the heart of the New BMW S 1000 RR is a four-cylinder in-line engine that has been refined further based on its predecessor. With its peak power now at 154 kW (210 hp) at 13,750 rpm, it marks a 2 kW (3 hp) increase compared to the previous iteration, while the maximum torque of 113 Nm is generated at 11,000 rpm. Accompanying the greater power output is a significantly broader and more fulsome usable engine speed range, with a maximum engine speed of 14,600 rpm.
Alongside the updated performance are innovations that ensure greater control for riders. These include the new Slide Control function in the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which assists the rider when accelerating out of a bend. It comes with two available preset drift angles for the traction control system, both utilising an advanced steering angle sensor to reduce slip and stabilise the motorcycle during leaning, as soon as the preset steering angle is achieved. Another notable innovation is the new Brake Slide Assist, part of the standard ABS Pro. Based also on steering sensor technology, this new function allows the rider to set at a pre-determine drift angle, or so-called braking drifts, while sliding into corners at a maintained speed. Additionally, the New BMW S 1000 RR is equipped with four riding modes – “Rain”, “Road”, “Dynamic” and “Race”.
As standard, the New BMW S 1000 RR is equipped with BMW Motorrad Race ABS, Hill Start Control (HSC), Shift Assist Pro, LED-Turn signal, LED headlight and rear light, as well as the M GPS Laptrigger. Also included as standard is the Dynamic Package, inclusive of Riding Mode Pro, HSC Pro, Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), Dynamic Damping Control (DDC), heated grips and cruise control. The New BMW S1000 RR arrives in two distinct colourways – Style Passion in Racing Red as well as the racing-oriented M Package Lightwhite.
