The M 1000 R is essentially a naked version of BMW’s flagship superbike, the M 1000 RR.
BMW Motorrad has launched the M 1000 R in India. The roadster is available in two variants: standard and Competition, priced at Rs 33 lakh and Rs 38 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively.
The M 1000 R is essentially a naked version of BMW’s flagship superbike, the M 1000 RR.
