2021 M 1000 RR

BMW Motorrad already introduced the successful M vehicle offer strategy at the end of 2018 for motorcycles and has been offering M optional equipment and M performance parts ever since. With the new BMW M 1000 RR – in the following referred to as M RR in short – the first M model from BMW Motorrad based on the S 1000 RR (RR for short) is now celebrating its world premiere. BMW Motorrad follows the philosophy of the strongest letter in the world: 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 156 kW (212 HP), a DIN vehicle kerb weight of only 192 kg and a suspension and aerodynamics designed for maximum race track performance, the new M RR meets the main expectations in the top segment of Superbikes.

The highlights of the new BMW M 1000 RR.

  • M RR four-cylinder engine based on the RR engine for racing sport. Even more peak power, higher torque in the medium range and 500 rpm more maximum speed.
  • 156 kW output at 14 500 rpm and thus 4 kW more than in the RR. Maximum torque of 113 Nm at 11 000 rpm.
  • New 2-ring forged piston 12 g lighter, adapted combustion chamber and compression increased to 13.5. In addition, slimmer and lighter rocker arms.
  • Fully machined intake ports with new duct geometry and BMW ShiftCam technology for varying the valve control time and valve lift.
  • Titanium valves, on the exhaust side with new spring assembly, slimmer and 6 % lighter rocker arms and optimised camshafts.
  • Very light, compact engine block with longer and 85 g lighter titanium connecting rods from Pankl for reduced friction power and less weight.
  • Anti-hopping clutch without self-reinforcing for optimum Launch Control.
  • Optimised differentiated intake system with shorter intake funnels for optimised gas exchange at high rotational speeds.
  • New, 3,657 g lighter exhaust system with exhaust manifold, front silencer and rear silencer made of titanium.
  • M winglets and high windscreen: Braking later and accelerating earlier and more stability when cornering thanks to the aerodynamic downforce without any reduction in maximum speed.
  • “Rain”, “Road”, “Dynamic”, “Race”“ and “Race Pro1-3” riding modes and the latest generation of the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and DTC wheelie function with 6-axle sensor box.
  • Two adjustable characteristic throttle curves for optimum response characteristics. Engine brake with threefold adjustable engine drag torque in “Race Pro” mode.
  • Shift assistant Pro for shifting gears up and down without clutch. Simple reversibility of the shift pattern for race track use.
  • Launch Control for perfect race starts and Pit-Lane-Limiter for precise speed in the pit lane.
  • Hill Start Control Pro for convenient starting on slopes.
  • Chassis design trimmed for race track use with modified geometry, optimised wheel load distribution and extended adjustability of the swinging arm pivot point.
  • Optimised upside-down fork and revised central spring strut with Full Floater Pro kinematics.
  • M brakes for the first time at BMW Motorrad: The M RR with maximum braking performance for the race track.
  • M carbon wheels: Classy high-tech components for maximum performance on race track and road.
  • Instrument cluster with large, perfectly readable 6.5-inch TFT display, starting animation with M logo and OBD interface that can be used with activation code for the M GPS data logger and M GPS laptrigger.
  • Lightweight M battery, USB charging socket in the rear, powerful integrated LED light units and heated grips.
  • M design and dynamic form language indicate ultimate race track performance.
  • M competition package with M GPS laptrigger and activation code, M milled parts package, M carbon package, silver, 220 g lighter swinging arm, DLC-coated M endurance chain and passenger package including tail-hump cover.
  • Comprehensive optional accessories and optional equipment ex works.
