With the bike’s larger siblings – the S1000R, S1000RR and M1000RR – rolling their tongues while inspiring the motorcycle community’s hooners to no end, it’s little wonder that BMW has chosen to feed a demand for a bike that shows off beautiful blue Bavarian bloodlines, yet stays more modest in the checkbooks (fingers crossed).
It will Have a Single-Cylinder Engine
A peashooter ‘RR’ for BMW??
Word is that this puchy piece of pretty will have the same engine as BMW’s G 310 R – the first BMW roadster under 500 cc.
The end result? A beautifully-liveried bike that will likely run a tad hot near the leggies.
We also have a few interesting comments below the Youtube vid, one of which was particularly worth a gander:
BMW should use a two-cylinder engine instead of that one cylinder. If… they use that single cylinder then BMW should retune it to make at least 40 hp power…[otherwise] what is the point of making a new bike with a high price where KTM offers the best package?
The Ninja, R3, Benelli…these overpriced bikes get [sales] because they are more powerful at top speed and have a smoother and better sounding two-cylinder engine.
BMW should notice this issue.
Unfortunately, despite the hype this bike is getting, we’re looking at an India-based debut only…for now.
