BMW Motorrad unveils the first ever motorcycle with the M index.

As a reminder, in 2018 the company announced a strategy for the introduction of the M automotive index for BMW Motorrad motorcycles, offering optional M and M Performance versions. Now the new BMW M 1000 RR is celebrating its world premiere.

The new M RR, with 212 hp, 192 kg, suspension and aerodynamics tailored for maximum performance on the racetrack, is now ready to be tested in the high-end superbike segment. M RR four-cylinder engine based on the S RR engine. Has more peak power, higher mid-range torque and 14,500 rpm higher top speed.

Engineers have also been able to optimize the differential intake system with shorter intake funnels to improve gas exchange efficiency at high speeds. The new, lighter exhaust system “lost” 3.6 kg compared to the regular version of the bike. The exhaust manifold, front and rear mufflers are made of titanium.

Carbon M aerodynamic canards and a high windshield allow for late braking, acceleration earlier and greater cornering stability thanks to aerodynamic downforce. Thus, the maximum speed remains the same. The motorcycle also received several riding modes: Rain, Road, Dynamic, Track and Track Pro 1-3. The variable geometry chassis design has been balanced for use on the race track. Optimized wheel load distribution and extended pivot point adjustment of the swing arm.

Also, the equipment of the new bike includes a dashboard with a 6.5-inch TFT display and an OBD interface, which with an activation code can be used to log data M GPS and laptrigger M GPS, a lighter M battery, USB charging connector, powerful LED headlights, electronic adaptive cruise control and heated grips. As noted in the press service of the brand, the new M 1000 RR is ready to race right from the factory.
