BMW’s latest offering in the sports adventure category, the S 1000 XR has been finally launched and will be sold in India as a CBU. Priced at Rs 20.9 lakh, ex-showroom, India, the S 1000 XR will only be available in the ‘Pro’ variant.
It’s powered by a 999cc four-cylinder engine that makes 163 bhp@11000 rpm and peak torque of 11.62 kg-m@9250 rpm. It will also have longer gear ratios for the 4th, 5th and 6th gears, which will ensure a reduction in engine noise level, less fuel consumption and a low rpm while cruising. There shouldn’t be any fuss with overtaking either, as the S 1000 XR will easily reach 100 kph in 3.3 seconds.
Further updates on the sports adventure tourer include a new 6.5-inch TFT screen, standard electronically adjustable suspension, four riding modes and more configurable settings. By more configurable settings, we mean, the S 1000 XR’s ABS, traction control, engine braking and wheelie control can all be separately configured.
