It is a more track-focused version of the S 1000 RR superbike.

BMW Motorrad has launched the M 1000 RR and M 1000 RR Competition at a price of Rs. 42 lakh and Rs. 45 lakh ex-showroom respectively.

The M 1000 RR is BMW's first M 2-wheeler. It is a more track-focused version of the S 1000 RR superbike and is based on a Flex Frame. The bike weighs 192 kg. 

The bike features a redesigned fairing that incorporates M winglets at the front. These are made from carbon fiber and generate downforce. The setup is claimed to counteract wheelie inclination and improve braking performance. The bike is finished in the M Sport colour scheme and rides on M carbon wheels.

The M Competition Package converts the street bike into a track machine. It includes:

  • M GPS-lap trigger
  • Passenger Kit
  • Pillion Seat Cover

  • M Billet Pack (M Engine Protectors, M Brake Lever Folding, M Brake Lever Guard, M Clutch Lever Folding, M Rider Footrest System)

The M 1000 RR is powered by a water-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine developing 210 BHP @ 14,500 rpm and 113 Nm @ 11,000 rpm. The engine features BMW ShiftCam Technology and comes with new 2-ring forged pistons from Mahle, adapted combustion chambers, increased compression of 13.5, longer and lighter titanium connecting rods from Pankl, slimmer and lighter rocker arms, fully machined intake ports with new duct geometry as well as optimised camshafts and intake. The bike also gets a lightweight Titanium exhaust system.

There are four standard modes - Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race. The Riding Modes Pro option adds three additional modes - Race Pro 1-3 that are freely programmable. The bike can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 306 km/h.
