The BMW S1000RR is a second generation sport bike and model refresh for the S1000RR, which had previously been in production since 2009, all be it with various alterations from 2009 to 2015.
With the introduction of a complete revamp of the S1000RR, it was revealed at the Milan Motorcycle Shows (EICMA) in November 2018, following a leak of its specifications in late October 2018 and spy shots of its redesigned body in 2017. It went on sale in June 2019 and was quickly met with an overly high demand for orders.
Fitted with a new inline-4 engine, that produces more horsepower and torque than the previous generation alongside being lighter, produces 207 bhp and 83 lb⋅ft of torque. The improved engine is married to a lighter chassis fitted with aluminium perimeter frames, and a longer wheelbase of an additional 9 mm coupled with an inverted telescopic fork front suspension, improves its handling at high speed.

It was revealed to be featured in Need for Speed: Heat with multiple early gameplay videos released on October 15, 2019, in which it is ridden by Torres arriving at the scene of a cover up for the High-Speed Task Force.
