Pushes you to the limit: the M 1000 R. In short, the M R. Superbike meets dynamic roadster. Its heritage stems from M racing developers and the race track. A stunning 210 hp with a top speed of 280 km/h and you’re in control – on country roads or the race track. The bike is very forgiving, but it will never forgive you for not riding it. Maximum performance: a must. Your objective: exceed – dominate the road. M colours clearly signal this. Unmissable: the sound of the M R four-cylinder engine. Can you hear it calling you? Start the engine! #NeverStopChallenging

M perfection: winglets

Perfection is in the details. M winglets generate aerodynamic downforce to prevent high flyers from taking off. At a speed of 220 km/h, they increase the front-wheel load by 11 kg. Your benefit: maximum riding stability, a lower tendency for the front wheel to lift off the road surface as well as the possibility to brake later and accelerate earlier when cornering.

M experience: electronics

Fully fledged M experience: the 6.5-inch TFT display welcomes you to the exclusive circle of high-performance riders with M start-up animation. One of four screen variants appears automatically after having started up thanks to the memory function. Optimised for the race track in true M style: as part of the new flashing gearshift indicator, the entire rev counter flashes once the set speed has been reached.

M dominance: engine

Superbike engine perfected for a hyper roadster: the four-cylinder engine from the RR with BMW ShiftCam technology catapults you from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. With a maximum engine speed of 14,600 rpm, the M R is clearly our most powerful roadster. From 10,000 rpm, you can consequently feel more torque and acceleration. In terms of its gear ratio, the M R has more to offer compared with the RR: 47 instead of 46 teeth in the secondary gear ratio and a shorter gear ratio in 4th, 5th and 6th gear – for performance-oriented riding along country roads. Shift assistant Pro enables fast upshifts and downshifts. The bike's rich sound originating from the titanium rear silencer impressively emphasises this.

M riding experience: chassis

Clear feedback and breathtaking target accuracy: the chassis with standard DDC as well as fully adjustable suspension elements, adjustable steering damper and milled handlebar clamp. For the M R, it was modified from the RR setup to match the demands of a dynamic roadster. New ergonomics and new handlebars ensure a seating position that is focussed on the front wheel.

M intelligence: assistants

Rather than doping: high levels of performance thanks to high-end assistants. Three accelerator characteristics, linked to the Rain, Road, Dynamic, Race and Race Pro riding modes, deliver optimum response characteristics. DTC ensures maximum safety and riding dynamics depending on the riding mode and Brake Slide Assist supports you in braking drifts when cornering.

Born in M town

White or black: no grey areas here. However, whether you choose the M R or the M R with M Competition package, you always choose a genuine M – identifiable by the exclusive colours with asymmetrical colour design at the front.

M statement: design

Dominant front, aggressive rear: M R at its best. Take your seat on the M seat at the perfect height and reach for the widened tubular handlebar with lasered “BMW M 1000 R” lettering. You stare into the handlebar end mirrors. Sound on, light on: the M logo appears in the LED headlight. You know the road is yours.

High-quality M Competition package

It doesn't get any better than this. Exclusive M Carbon parts, such as rear-wheel cover and chain guard, front-wheel cover, tank trims, airbox cover featuring tapes, wind deflectors, pinion cover, activation code for the M GPS-Laptrigger, M passenger package and a milled M front footrest system demonstrate that this bike won't be beaten. And nothing will stop it: thanks to M Carbon wheels that cut the weight by 1.6 kg.
