Acceleration even at standstill: the BMW K 1300 R.
As one of the most powerful models in its segment, the flamboyant high-performance BMW K 1300 R roadster meets the most exacting demands in terms of riding dynamics. Its muscular front end and slim, sporty rear hold out a promise that is fulfilled the moment you set off on this naked bike: the BMW K 1300 R launches into a rocket start while also boasting safe and stable roadholding through corners.
Superbike without compromise: the BMW S 1000 RR.
Ease of handling coupled with extreme ride stability, supreme engine performance allied to perfect everyday utility: thanks to its sporting DNA, the BMW S 1000 RR turns the road into a race track. With its aluminium frame, radical braking system and dynamic tail-up, nose-down design, this bike exemplifies undiluted racing power.
Dhoom:3, the third instalment of the eponymous Bollywood action movie series, will hit cinemas around the world on 20 December 2013. A string of sensational chases sees cop Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) and his partner Ali (Uday Chopra) astride the BMW S 1000 RR superbike in hot pursuit of the slippery clown thief, Sahir played by none other than Bollywood megastar Aamir Khan, who sets the screen alight with spectacular stunts on the BMW K 1300 R. Filming took place in Chicago and Mumbai.
