BMW Motorrad Malaysia Introduces the New BMW S 1000 RR, BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS.

BMW Motorrad Malaysia recently unveiled a new line-up of premium motorcycles including the New BMW S 1000 RR, BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS to Make Life a Ride for BMW Motorrad enthusiasts nationwide.

The New BMW S 1000 RR – a legend on the racetrack.
Newly developed from scratch, the New BMW S 1000 RR now moves into its third generation. The engine and suspension have undergone comprehensive development to remain the benchmark in the superbike sector, complete with an unmistakably sporty design.

The New BMW S 1000 RR features a new layout in the main frame – 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. The front view of the new Superbike forms a narrow and streamlined silhouette. In combination with a low-level front section, this gives the new Superbike a light, athletic appearance.

With very short overhangs, the vehicle body sits entirely between the wheels, creating the sportiest Superbike silhouette to date. The integrated front light design features LED technology without reflectors, combining both low and high beams in one compact element. The M Sport Package equips the New BMW S 1000 RR with the exclusive M Sport Seat and country-specific brake lights, along with M carbon fibre wheels – adding to the sporty outlook of the new Superbike.

Achieving an entirely new level of performance, the New BMW S 1000 RR is powered by a newly developed 4-cylinder in-line engine. The advanced engine now has a capacity of 999 cc and an increased maximum output of 152 kW / 207 hp at 13,500 rpm, with 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 BMW S 1000 RR is also fitted with the maintenance-free M lightweight battery, capable of 12 V / 8 Ah. The New BMW S 1000 RR now also comes with BMW ShiftCam Technology which varies the valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side.

With a revised intake passage, a lighter engine and exhaust system, the weight of the Superbike has been reduced from 208 kg to 193.5 kg, contributing to increased overall performance. The next generation of the electronic suspension Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) also equips the new Superbike. Specially developed for the New BMW S 1000 RR, the DDC requires no compromises in terms of suspension set-up.

The New BMW S 1000 RR also comes with four riding modes as standard – Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race. Additionally, the new Superbike will also feature the ‘Pro Modes’ which offers three additional riding modes – Pro 1, Pro 2 and Pro 3. These enable individual adaptation of control functions such as DTC, ABS Pro and DTC Wheelie detection as well as the throttle curve (torque adjustment) and Engine Brake. Launch Control is also available for perfect race starts, along with the configurable Pit Lane Limiter for exact adherence to speeds in the pit lane. Ultra-fast shifting up and down without the clutch is enabled by HP Shift Assistant Pro, which also comes as a standard feature.

The instrument panel of the New BMW S 1000 RR has also been redesigned, featuring 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. The Pure Ride screen shows all the information required for regular road use while the three Core screens are designed for use on the racetrack.

This is supported by the dynamic design featuring the colours of the BMW M. The BMW Motorsport colours include Racing Blue, Lightwhite and Racing Red, which emphasise the BMW M racing genes.

Off the beaten path with the New BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS.
The New BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS are powered by a significantly redeveloped boxer engine for enhanced power and torque – an industry-leading advancement by BMW Motorrad for the years ahead.

Arriving in the sleek Style HP, the New BMW R 1250 R showcases qualities of a sporty Roadster with the colour combination of Lightwhite, Racing Blue and Racing Red. Lightwhite paints the main frame, on the front wheel cover as well as in combination with graphics on the trim elements at the sides of the fuel tank and on the rear. A powerful contrast is provided by the main frame in black matte and the cast wheels coated in Night Black. The sporty appearance is further underscored with silver anodised fork slider tubes, gold brake callipers and an engine spoiler designed in stainless steel.

The New BMW R 1250 RS, on the other hand, arrives in Style Exclusive that features an elegant body finish in Imperial Blue. The cylinder head covers and main frame in Agate Grey matte provide a refined, discreet contrast. With the black embossed seat in the rear section, the main frame coated in black matte gives the new motorcycle a sleek outlook. The front wheel cover, radiator trim elements, upper trim, fuel tank cover and rear side sections are finished in Imperial Blue. Meanwhile, gold brake callipers and slider tubes arrive in silver. LED daytime riding light is now available as standard for both the New BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS.

Powering the New BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS is the advanced boxer engine with a 1,254-cc capacity that is capable of a 100 kW / 136 hp output at 7,750 rpm, and a peak torque of 143 Nm at 6,250 rpm. The new engine offers improved emission of 110 g/km and fuel consumption levels of 4.75 litres per 100 km of travel, complete with a particularly satisfying sound. For this purpose, BMW ShiftCam Technology is also used for the first time, enabling variation of the valve timings and valve stroke on the intake side.

Additionally, the intake camshafts of both models are now redesigned for more effective combustion, and technical changes such as an optimised oil supply, twin-jet injection valves and a new exhaust system further set both models apart from their predecessors. Both models also feature two riding modes as standard to adapt the motorcycle to individual rider preferences. The standard Automatic Stability Control ensures a high level of riding safety due to the best possible traction. The set-off assistant Hill Start Control is likewise a standard feature, enabling convenient set-off on slopes.

Both the New BMW R 1250 R and BMW R 1250 RS are also equipped with "Riding Modes Pro”, featuring the additional riding mode "Dynamic” and “Dynamic Pro”, and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) which enables even more efficient and safe acceleration, especially The new Dynamic Brake Control provides additional safety when braking by avoiding unintentional accelerator activation.

The two motorcycles now feature “Connectivity” as a standard equipment, a multifunctional instrument cluster with a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen. In conjunction with the standard BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller, this means the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions particularly swiftly and conveniently. Both models are intelligently fitted with Keyless Ride for a more convenient riding experience.
