Default Rumour: BMW Motorrad '///M' range in the works

With the S1000RR revealed in 2018 - BMW had added a top of the line variant 'with M package' to the range that added Riding Modes Pro, M Carbon Wheels, M lightweight battery and M Sport Seat (Black). But they shied away from properly associating the legendary ///M branding on the bikes.

However, as per recent German trademark filings, all that may be about to change. We could be seeing the M 1000 RR, M 1000 XR, and the M 1300 GS very soon.

The firm has registered the names M 1000 RR, M 1000 XR and M 1300 GS in Germany, suggesting the firm has ideas to launch a high-spec, high-performance 'M' range of machines sitting above the normal models in its line-up.
The new trademarks leave little doubt as to what the bikes concerned might be. The M 1000 RR is clearly intended to be a higher-spec model derived from the S 1000 RR superbike. Weve already seen BMW has ideas on that front; the old version of the S 1000 RR had the HP4 and HP4 Race machines in the range, the latter debuting the firms new carbon-fibre frame technology.

The M 1000 XR would clearly be based on the S 1000 XR a model thats due to be completely revamped for 2020, inheriting the new S 1000 RRs ShiftCam engine, a new chassis and new styling

However, the most intriguing of the trademarked titles is M 1300 GS, since BMW currently has no 1300 model in its range. Chances are that this M-machine would be based on the R 1250 GS, with the higher number either signifying a capacity increase or perhaps simply a performance boost.
