More powerful 2023 BMW S1000RR announced with bigger winglets, new controlled slide tech


2023 BMW S1000RR gets updated aero technology.

The 2023 BMW S1000RR superbike has been officially revealed. It comes out as a heavily updated model sporting more power than the outgoing bike, new aerodynamics technology (winglets) and a range of fresh features, to make it faster and safer, than ever. Thanks to these updates the bike has been priced at £17,150 (converts to Rs 13.70 lakh as per current exchange rates) in the international market.
The bike comes dressed in three new liveries that immediately distinguish itself from the old model. It features dual front wings wrapping around the frowning front LED lights. This, as per BMW, has been integrated to increase the downforce (10kg) at the front and prevent the front end from unwanted wheelies on track. In addition to this, the aero has been further tweaked with the use of a taller front screen and a claimed lighter, subtly re-styled rear end.

Coming on to the powertrain, the bike now churns out around 2.7bhp more power (206.5bhp at 13,750rpm) than the previous model thanks to the updated intake ports derived from the BMW M1000RR. Also, the rear sprocket on the bike has lost a tooth to 45 to boost traction on the rear wheel and there is also a new programable up/down quick shifter which can either be set to road or race shift. Housing this 999cc liquid-cooled inline four-cyl engine as a stressed member is an updated aluminum twin-spar ‘Flex Frame,’ which as per BMW, builds on the old design with several opening in the sides to deliver a greater lateral flex.

The new S1000RR has also been updated with more advanced electronics with the help of a steering angle sensor to offer controlled slides (power and brake) which can be used when on the track. The bike has been added with the ‘Slide Control’ functionality on its traction control package. It allows the user to pick two pre-set drift angles. As the name suggests, these options offer the motorcycle to cleverly allow the rear wheel to slip and do controlled drifts. Also, it now gets ‘Brake Slide Assist’ and ‘Slick’ ABS modes that make use of the steering angle sensors.
