"With its newly developed engine and uncompromising ergonomics, it (BMW S 1000 XR) offers awe-inspiring performance, sporty ride and long-distance capabilities," BMW Group India acting President Arlindo Teixeira said. The bike brings the real racetrack feel to everyday roads and is "a perfect companion, ready to hit the road for all kind of journeys with sheer motorcycling enjoyment", he added.
