BMW S 1000 RR Overview
BMW are globally well known for their prowess in building rugged, reliable and contemporary motorcycles as they are for building quality for wheelers. For years the marque has been establishing several noteworthy benchmarks and has come to be known as one of the most advanced bike manufacturers in the world. We can't forget that it was BMW indeed who put the first ABS system on a motorcycle and since then it has been emulated by other manufacturers throughout the world. But what BMW really lacked was a superbike to compete with in the WSBK Championship. Sure they had an enviable sport tourer lineup, machines that could much miles at high speeds, but superbikes they were not. Thus came into being BMW's flagship superbike, the BW S1000 RR.
BMW S 1000 RR Engine & Transmission
Superbikes mean super precision manufactured engines built to close tolerances, all capable of withstanding high wear & tear since they will be ridden fast & they will be ridden hard. The S1000 RR is no different. It features a water cooled 4stroke inline 4 cylinder 999 cc DOHC engine with a 32 degree incline, featuring twin cams & 4 titanium valves per cylinder. Featuring bore X stroke dimensions of 80 X 49.7 mm & a compression ratio of 13:1 the engine belts out 193 Bhp @ 13,000 rpm in terms of peak power & 112 NM of torque @ 9,750 rpm. The engine is mated to a constant mesh 6 speed gearbox with shift assist & a wet multiplate clutch in an oil bath. The clutch is cable operated & mechanically controlled with antihopping technology. Final drive to the rear wheel is via chain drive instead of shaft drive. The engine gets fuel via electronic fuel injection with 2 fuel injectors per cylinder & is managed via a digital engine management system featuring knock control.
BMW S 1000 RR Mileage
The BMW S100 RR has optimised combustion for better fuel economy and a 17.5 ltr fuel tank that helps the bike to return approximately 15-16 kmpl in the city with highway use seeing economy go up to 19 kmpl.
BMW S 1000 RR Performance and Handling
The S100 RR is a super performer & very agile both on road & track all thanks to the way the bike has been setup. The all aluminium composite bridge frame with partially self-supporting engine minimizes chassis flex to a bare minimum and offers optimum rigidity & balance. The bike gets its share of cunning electronics that help keep it stable & controlled in the most dynamic of conditions & thus benefits via 4 riding modes that adjust throttle response, power delivery, ABS and even traction control. Speaking of ABS the system found on the bike is an all new Race ABS system with 2 new modes 'race' & 'slick'. These help when riding on racetrack like conditions allowing the rider to take corners faster. The bike is ably supported by its lightweight cast aluminium wheels that have 120/70 tyres up front on a 3.50 X 17" rim and 190/55 tyres at the rear on a 6.00 X17" rim. Braking duties up front are taken care of by 320 mm floating twin discs with radially mounted four piston callipers. The rear brake features a 220 mm floating single rotor single piston calliper setup. The brakes do an excellent job of throwing the anchors as and when required.
