    Default Chasing my dreams... The S1000RR comes home!

    Yes, my dream bike, the BMW S1000RR is here! Oh I cannot believe this is happening! I have just got the 2014 Blue/White S1000RR from the showroom. I am too excited to say anything more I can barely type! So just the below pics & videos for now! Detailed story will follow soon.


    With the one and only beemer!




    A video from one hour test ride of 2016 S1000RR as only that was available for TR. This basically sealed the deal




    Update:

    This is when I saw my bike for the first time in showroom!













    Brief info about the bike:


    This was first reg on March 2014, ridden for only 4450kms and it came with BMW tank bag, tail bag, anti theft system and HID for low beam. Rest everything is completely stock. It was part of BMW Premium Selection so they give 3 yrs warranty and BMW assistance. They also did the service before delivery so the next service is after a year or 10000kms whichever is earlier. It is very convenient for me as I don't have to worry about any thing for the coming months apart from changing the tyre after few thousand kms (The rear tyre seems like it can do another 5k kms).

    Before taking delivery, I bought R&G frame sliders, fork protectors and swingarm spools and asked them to install it and they luckily they did it without extra charges!

    I dont want to mention the price as the already jealous and hating people might just lose it But its very easy to do the math, just divide the Indian price without reg/insurance etc by 2 and reduce a couple of lakhs and you get the price of brand new one. Since this is 2yrs old, reduce the price further by 20% or so and you can make an estimate.


    In the past two days, I have now ridden for 200 odd kms and boy, I am loving every bit of it. One drawback I found was that, I need few minutes after I park the bike, I cant seem to simply move away without admiring it wonder how long this feeling will last! Also my commute to office which is 12kms mostly on highways gets over in 9min or so, by the time I really start enjoying I reach office! Wish I stayed a bit far


    Sorry for the piece by piece update btw, I need sometime to just sit down and write the whole story but cant do it on weekdays. By the end of this week, there will be lots of updates


    You can find the first set of photoshoot pics here!

    It's the journey that matters, not the destination.

    Thanks a lot Archer for your words

    One of the reasons why I wanted the older version was its looks and also it was my first love the newer ones didnt appeal to my heart as much and not to mention much more expensive as well.
