So, coming towards the 2024 BMW S1000RR design factors, the all new BMW S1000RR doesn’t seem to be much of an upgrade from the previous generation 2020 S1000RR in terms of design language. The silhouette still seems to be quite similar to the shark-shaped 2020 model, however, is slightly redesigned with the addition of two functional sets of winglets as we get to see on the flagship M1000RR which can generate a downforce of up to 16.8 lbs at 200kmph, while significantly increasing to 37.7 lbs at 300kmph. The body design now looks much sharper, and more progressive with those twin LED-Projector headlights, minimalistic tail, and sophisticatedly added winglets borrowed from the finely tuned road-legal BMW M1000RR.
The new gen 2024 BMW S1000RR runs on a much lighter M chassis Kit as standard along with improved body aerodynamics and a sleekly redesigned tail. The rear tail section has been smartly revamped to a great extent with a shorter number plate holder as well as a narrow tail end which is an improvement from the RR’s existing aluminum bridge frame. Also, the cut-outs within the cast aluminum flex-frame dynamically increase the overall flexibility of the new gen BMW S1000RR with better drag and acceleration whether you take it into the corners or on highways. The chassis geometry is tweaked with a longer rake, trail, and wheelbase, less fork offset, and more ride height. The new M1000RR-derived symmetrical design looks highly advanced and beautiful on the new BMW S1000RR at a single glance.
Apart from that, the windshield has also been reshaped slightly taller to further improve the flow around the rider’s helmet with enhanced aerodynamic improvements achieved by partitioning off the lower triple clamp. The bodywork has been offered with a choice of three color options – Black Storm metallic, Passion Red non-metallic, and BMW’s trademark White racing livery, also referred to as BMW’s “M-Sport Package”. However, the 2024 BMW S1000RR price in India for the Pro and M-Sport versions comes at a premium difference of 4 to 5 lakhs, on-road above the standard 2024 BMW S1000RR Price. You’ll again get to see the BMW M Sport Package with additional M carbon fibre bits that include, M-Sport carbon wheels, M-Sport riding seat, and M-Sport Brake Calipers powered by Nissin.
Powering the 2024 BMW S1000RR is a new 999cc inline-four ‘ShiftCam’ engine which bursts out 206.51 bhp at 13750 rpm, and the same 113Nm of torque at 11,000 rpm. The engine is now a whopping 4kgs lighter than before and comes with BMW’s ShiftCam technology with variable valve timing and lift. BMW’s ShiftCam technology is a dynamic setup patented by BMW, that slides the camshaft back and forth to engage different lobes depending on the acceleration and engine speed. All that mind-boggling power is transferred to the rear wheel through a 6-speed transmission, assisted with an all-new Shift Assistant Pro quick-shifter for relentless upshifts and downshifts with enhanced acceleration.
The airbox unit of the new 2024 BMW S1000RR is entirely new, with shorter intake ports and a cast alloy surface for much smoother airflow. The airflow geometry of the new gen BMW S1000RR reacts based on the same geometry as available on the more powerful version of the engine used in the M 1000 RR. Although the camshaft profiles shift at 9000rpm to swap between torque-focused lobes and the higher lift that changes length depending on engine speed, using a servo motor circuit controlled by the engine management system.
Even after the increased power output on the new gen BMW S1000RR, the torque output remains untouched, which makes the ShiftCam engine down on peak power output compared to Ducati Panigale V4 S and Aprilia RSV4 Factory. However, it completely justifies the increased BMW S1000RR price in India, as there is more grunt available on the new S1000RR, all thanks to the addition of an extra tooth to the rear sprocket, taking it to 46 teeth and lowering the final drive ratio. So, the peak power output now arrives at a slightly higher rpm than before but pulls cleanly through its midrange where the electronic rider aids come into play. The throttle response on the new gen BMW S1000RR is very precise and active, which makes you hit the rev range impressively fast without any scratchiness, which also gives the rear tyre an easier life, and allows you to accelerate progressively while gaining great control over the bike with better grip.
Talking about the handling dynamics is where the new gen 2024 BMW S1000RR excels over all its litre-class rivals apart. The new-gen BMW S1000RR comes with an alloy ‘Flex Frame’ chassis that is made by forging four die-cast aluminum elements and utilizing the 999cc ‘ShiftCam’ powerplant as a structural unit. The “Flex Frame” chassis is further optimized with several cut-outs to enhance the overall flexibility and revised geometry of the 2024 BMW S1000RR. BMW has even revised the steering geometry of the new S1000RR where the steering head angle is 0.5 degrees shallower at 23.6 degrees instead of 23.1 degrees, while the offset has decreased to 3mm due to the addition of new triple clamps. The Caster angle has also been increased from 93.9mm to 99.8mm along with the wheelbase which is now 16mm longer than before at 1457mm, equivalent to what we see on the current M1000RR.
As we have discussed before inside the looks section, the new gen BMW S1000RR now gets the ‘M Chassis Kit’ as standard, whereas it used to be an option on the previous generation. An adjustable swingarm pivot point, a reworked suspension configuration for the rear shock absorber, and 45mm front USD forks are all part of the standard “M Chassis Kit.” However, BMW has not made any changes to the overall weight of the vehicle. The bike weighs 197 kg as standard, 195.4 kg for the optional “Pro” which adds forged aluminum alloy wheels in place of die-cast rims, and 193.5 kg when the “M Package” option is selected, which replaces them with light carbon wheels.
Apart from that, the all new 2024 BMW S1000RR comes with dynamic rider assistance systems such as an IMU-based cornering race ABS (Switchable), dynamic traction control (DTC), hill start assist, and four riding modes: including – Road, Rain, Dynamic & Race. Apart from that, you’ll also get to experience some flagship features such as Dynamic Damping Control (DDC), launch control, slide control, wheelie control, a pitlane limiter, Hill Start Control Pro, cruise control, and additional riding modes. So, when all these advanced rider assistance programs come into play, the new gen S1000RR provides good stability just like a 600cc motorbike with minimum effort, instead of being a liter-class motorbike.
A New TFT Instrument Dashboard
On board, you get access to a brand-new display cluster on the 6.5-inch TFT dashboard. This display cluster contains a variable “dashed” region that is only briefly visited before the redline and changes based on variables, such as the engine’s temperature. When it’s time to change another gear, both the shift light and the rev counter flash together for a better understanding of changing gears on the 2024 BMW S1000RR.
With the increased BMW S1000RR price in India, BMW has made minor updates to the brakes of the vehicle with BMW-branded radial 4-pot calipers on 320mm discs at the front, and a single-piston rear caliper attached to a 220mm rotor disc. Furthermore, the brakes are assisted by BMW’s upgraded “ABS Pro” system that comes equipped with BSA (Brake Slide Assist to hold the racing line breathtakingly. The new BSA works in compliance with the ABS, MSR, the new steering head sensor, and brake pressure, where the clutch must be engaged, revs need to be high, and deceleration needs to be rapid the make the BSA feature Work.

So, the final verdict about the all new BMW S1000RR is here! Well, the usability of the RR’s chassis and engine is now being offered with advanced rider aids. That means the changes to the chassis, even the addition of new aerodynamic wings, aren’t ground-breaking enough, however, the upgraded electronics do make a significant difference to a good-looking litre-class sportbike with amazing feedback, stability, and tremendous stopping power from those M performance branded calipers.
If you were to consider purchasing this, you would gain improved brakes, updated electronics, greater power, and a more responsive, pliable chassis with winglets straight from the MotoGP track.
