Late last year BMW Motorrad introduced us to the new BMW M 1000 RR and now the bike is available. M stands worldwide for success in motor racing and the fascination of high-performance BMW models and is aimed at customers with particularly high demands relating to performance, exclusiveness and individuality. With an engine output of a staggering 212 HP and a kerb weight of only 192 kg this was always going to be special. Add in a suspension package and aerodynamics designed for maximum race track performance and we have one very special bike on our hands.
The new M RR, as it’s known, uses a water-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine based on the original RR power train. It comes with BMW ShiftCam technology for varying valve timing and lift. This has been modified comprehensively in the direction of a racing sport engine. The maximum engine speed is increased to a lofty 15,100 rpm. The lightweight exhaust system is made of titanium. The new engine is even more powerful in the range from 6,000 rpm to 15,100 rpm. This is a range that is particularly relevant for race track riding dynamics. It manages to do all this without losing its qualities as a brilliant bike to ride on country roads.
