BMW has launched the road-legal version of its Superbike World Championship (also known as WSBK) machine, the updated M 1000 RR, at Rs 49 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Equipping the bike with the M Competition Package will set you back by another Rs 6 lakh, taking the price up to Rs 55 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

Powering the BMW M 1000 RR is a liquid-cooled, 999cc, inline four engine making 212hp at 14,500rpm and 113Nm of torque at 11,000rpm. While torque stays the same, peak power has risen by 2hp (and is made 750rpm higher), compared to the 2023 S 1000 RR Pro M Sport. Compared to the latter, the M 1000 RR is also 1.5kg lighter, with the M Competition Package reducing another 200g.

The design of the M 1000 RR is much different than the S 1000 RR with a large air intake at the front and massive winglets on each side of the full carbon-fibre fairing. A full suite of race-spec electronic rider aids are on offer, including 7 riding modes (3 of which are fully customisable), switchable ABS and traction control, with all of this being controlled via a 6.5-inch colour TFT dash.

In case you’re one of those people who can afford to shell out the extra Rs 6 lakh for the M Competition Package, here’s what you’ll get for that princely sum – a GPS datalogger to record your lap times, billet machined M parts, carbon-fibre aero covers for the wheels and a bare metal swingarm (that’s 220g lighter).

Even at its BMW 3 Series price ballpark, the BMW M 1000 RR still handsomely undercuts its rival from Bologna, the Rs 69.90 lakh Ducati Panigale V4 R.
