Kuala Lumpur, 22nd May 2020 – BMW Motorrad Malaysia today introduced the New BMW S 1000 RR, the newest high-performance motorcycle in its superbike segment.
Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Every model in the BMW Motorrad portfolio is crafted with precision and tuned for the highest levels of performance, be it on the road or on the racetrack. The New BMW S 1000 RR is perfectly tuned for both as it raises the bar yet again with its new, formidable engine and sleek aerodynamic design. With the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations around the corner, we are pleased to introduce this second variant of the iconic Superbike here in Malaysia.”
Owen Riley, Head of BMW Motorrad Malaysia said, “Last year, we ended the year with over 100 new motorcycle owners within the Superbike segment in Malaysia, following a successful introduction of the BMW S 1000 RR M Package at the Malaysian leg of the MotoGP in November last year. This success has paved the way for our latest addition to the segment as it upholds the award-winning legacy of the iconic Superbike. Well-known as the King of the Isle of Man TT, we present the New BMW S 1000 RR variant.”
Having dominated the racing scene for more than a decade, the icon of Superbikes is now finetuned for more power, agility and style. The newly developed four-cylinder in-line engine that is now lighter than before lends the Superbike an entirely new level of performance. The New BMW S 1000 RR is ready to charge forward and set higher standards in the segment, following in the footsteps of its predecessors that have topped charts since 2008.
The New BMW S 1000 RR – resilient in nature.
With the same iconic flair as its sibling variant unveiled last year, the New BMW S 1000 RR also features latest in engine innovation and an unmistakably dynamic appearance that is set to raise the benchmark in its segment once again.
The New BMW S 1000 RR features the Flex Frame, creating a much leaner fuel tank and seating area trim sections for further improved support and knee grip. All elements are consistently designed to ensure optimum performance in every situation. A rear seat cover is also offered as standard with the rider’s seat. The front view of the new Superbike forms a narrow and streamlined silhouette, as the familiar upside-down fork offers excellent steering precision. In combination with a low-level front section, this gives the new Superbike a light, athletic appearance.
Creating a sporty silhouette is the vehicle body that sits entirely between the wheels with short overhangs. The aluminium fuel tank and cast aluminium wheels are available as standard. The headlight features LED technology and the illuminated style element as standard, combining both low and high beams in one compact element. The LED taillight arrives with a combined dynamic brake light and comfort turn indicator in one unit. The New BMW S 1000 RR will be available in two striking colours: Racing Red and Hockenheim Silver Metallic.
The New BMW S 1000 RR is powered by a newly developed 4-cylinder in-line cross engine with a capacity of 999 cc and an increased maximum output of 152 kW / 207 hp at 13,500 rpm, capable of a top speed of above 200 km/h. The new Superbike also features an increased torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm, consuming 6.4 litres of fuel per 100 km of travel. The new chain-driven Superbike also arrives with the BMW ShiftCam Technology which varies the valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side.
The new Superbike is equipped with four riding modes as standard – Rain, Road, Dynamic and Dynamic Pro. These riding modes also control functions such as the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and ABS Pro for increased safety when braking or in banking position, while the BMW Motorrad Integral ABS system provides an even higher degree of performance. Hill Start Control offers support when starting on steep inclines. Ultra-fast shifting up and down without the clutch is enabled by HP Shift Assistant Pro. The adjustable steering stabiliser also equips the new Superbike along with the electronic immobiliser.
The instrument panel of the new Superbike features a 6.5-inch TFT screen that provides excellent readability – even in difficult light conditions. It is linked to the Multi Controller on the left-hand handlebar panel and can be operated quickly, safely and conveniently from there. Individually tailored screen displays also offer different uses to the rider.
Additionally, the New BMW S 1000 RR is equipped with Connectivity which allows swift pairing of the Superbike to the rider’s mobile phones for convenient music playback and phone calls. When used in conjunction with the BMW Connected app, which is exclusive to selected countries worldwide, the rider can easily access the new Superbike’s status and statistics.
Other highlights of the New BMW S 1000 RR includes the drop sensor as standard, as well as the adjustable clutch lever and adjustable handbrake lever. A detachable license plate holder is also available for owners of the new Superbike. The New BMW S 1000 RR will be available at all authorised dealerships nationwide from 22nd May 2020.
