BMW Motorrad Pushes Limit Again With M1000R And M1000RR

At the end of 2018, BMW Motorrad already introduced the successful M automobile range strategy for motorcycles and has since been offering M special equipment and M Performance Parts. The new BMW M 1000 R – hereafter referred to as the M R for short – is the second M model from BMW Motorrad to celebrate its world premiere, following the M 1000 RR superbike: The M Roadster.

In the anniversary year of the 50th birthday of BMW M GmbH, BMW Motorrad is also adhering to the dynamic philosophy of the most powerful letter in the world with the new M R: M is synonymous worldwide with racing success as well as the fascination of high-performance BMW models and is aimed at customers with particularly high demands for performance, exclusivity and individuality.

Meanwhile, With the further development of the BMW M 1000 RR, M RR for short, BMW Motorrad is setting a new milestone in the field of superbikes homologated for racing. The new M RR is powered by the familiar water-cooled inline 4-cylinder engine designed for racing purposes, especially the Superbike World Championship. As before, its peak output is 156 kW (212 hp) at 14,500 rpm. The chassis of the new M RR also relies on the aluminium bridge frame as its centrepiece, supplemented by an upside-down fork and central suspension strut with Full Floater Pro kinematics. The new M 1000 RR is offered in two versions: As the M RR basic variant in the basic paint finish Lighwhite non-metallic and as the M RR M Competition in the basic paint finish Blackstorm metallic.
