BMW Motorrad has officially announced their exclusive partnership with upcoming Bollywood action-thriller Dhoom:3. This is the first official collaboration by BMW Motorrad with an Indian film venture.
BMW Motorrad and Yash Raj Films, the makers of Dhoom:3, have their collaboration in place and the film will feature the BMW S 1000 RR and K 1300 R models in high-speed chases and edge-of-the-seat action sequences.
“For BMW Motorrad, the focus is always on the rider’s experience. That is why we are incredibly proud to be making our debut not just in an Indian film venture but in the biggest Bollywood blockbuster of the year – and with our BMW bikes playing such a high-profile role. This is a project predestined for high-speed chases on the big screen,” said Alexander Baraka, head of BMW events, exhibitions and motorsport marketing.
The K 1300 R is considered a ‘muscle’ bike, which is basically a large displacement naked. It is powered by a 1293cc inline-4 that churns out 173PS of power and 140Nm of peak torque. It claims a 0-100kmph of around 2.8 seconds. The S 1000 RR on the other hand is a sport bike. A litre-class, this bike gets its power from a 999cc inline-4 that makes 179PS of power and 106Nm of peak torque. It claims a 0-100kmph of around three seconds.
