BMW Motorrad has brought the S 1000 XR to India. The Variant available in India is the S 1000 XR Pro and will set you back by INR 20,90,000. The adventure tourer is brought to India through the CBU route and this significantly adds to the cost.
Blink and it’s Gone!
Staying freakishly true to the biker statement “Drop a gear and disappear“, the Big BMW is powered by a 999cc Inline-4 cylinder engine that is based off of the sporty S 1000 RR. The DOHC engine develops a whopping 165 bhp at 11,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 9250 rpm. 0-100 comes at 3.3 seconds. Are we even speaking about an adventure tourer? absolutely! The fully fuelled, road-ready S 1000 XR tips the scale at 226 kilos – a rather acceptable number. As you would expect, the tourer from BMW comes loaded with features and tech gizmos – a long list of it.
You get the Full LED Lights, Riding Modes Pro, Dynamic ESA, Integrated Pannier Holders as standard equipment. We also have a handy “Toll pass” compartment on the fuel tank to hold the toll gate passes. The Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) controls the damping action of the suspension through electronic actuators at the front and the rear.

The all-new BMW S 1000 XR has four standard riding modes – Rain, Road, Dynamic and Dynamic Pro. The ‘Dynamic Pro’ mode is fully configurable and offers riders a wide range of setting options to suit their riding style. The throttle response, engine brake, ABS control and traction control, wheelie control (including the new ‘Power Wheelie’ setting) can be configured separately for the first time. The dynamic brake assistant DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) also supports the rider during braking manoeuvres.
The MSR or dynamic engine break control electronically prevents the locking, slippage or hopping of the rear wheel that can result when the throttle is snapped shut or the during downshifts. MSR maximizes stability and safety by detecting rear wheel hopping in time and instantaneously equalizes drag torque by opening the throttle valves. A 6.5- inch colour TFT screen instrument cluster along with BMW Motorrad connectivity offers unmatched display and access to information.
Mr. Arlindo Teixeira, acting President, BMW Group India said, “The all-new BMW S 1000 XR is an agile achiever that sets a new benchmark in the adventure sports segment. It is a power-packed performer that brings the real racetrack feel to everyday roads. With its newly developed engine and uncompromising ergonomics, it offers awe-inspiring performance, sporty ride and long-distance capabilities. Riders waiting for a distinctive experience will be drawn to the multi-faceted all-new BMW S 1000 XR. It’s a perfect companion, ready to hit the road for all kind of journeys with sheer motorcycling enjoyment.”
The all-new BMW S 1000 XR will be offered in the Pro variant. You can choose from two colors – Ice Grey and Racing Red. The Bike comes with a standard 3 year/unlimited km warranty which, of course can be extended for the fourth and the fifth year.
