The RR is now even more focused and more precisely geared towards pure performance. For those who increasingly demand more. More from themselves. More each lap. And more from their RR. Simply put: #NeverStopChallenging. Leading the way is a matter of millimetres, especially in the circles the RR has always been a part of. That’s why we have streamlined and evolved the RR where it matters most: from the new steering angle sensor with Brake Slide Assist and Slide Control as well as the integration of M components and improvements to the electronics and crucial processes for modifying the bike for the race track. And all this with a clear goal in mind – claiming the pole position over and over again.

It’s hard to imagine the race track without it – and the RR is also intrinsically linked to it

Depending on the speed, composite plastic winglets generate up to 17.1 kg aerodynamic downforce at 300 km/h. This downforce counteracts the tendency of the front wheel to lift off the road surface when accelerating: the fork maintains contact with the ground and DTC isn’t forced to intervene as much. This allows you to noticeably and even more directly convert drive power into acceleration.

More performance on screen

Off to the pit lane after a few laps around the racetrack: The last screen used now always displays after you switch the ignition off/on. This helps you concentrate and stay focused on your mode. One Pure Ride screen and three different Core screens are available depending on your preference. The system displays a suitable maximum speed when the engine is cold. The shift light now makes it much more obvious when the rotational-speed sensor is flashing. And we cleared up the screen, making it even easier for you to check the TFT display to see the factory settings for your assistance systems – like ABS Pro, DTC, or DDC – under Settings.

Passion is where the heart beats – and boy, does it beat!

Unleashed passion: we have once again transferred all the experience from the race track to the high-performance BMW ShiftCam four-cylinder engine in the RR: for 3 hp more output to now total 210 hp (154 kW). The airbox from the M RR ensures particularly good air supply and better load changes. The cylinder heads with new channel geometry and reinforced bearing brackets also stem from the M RR. We have also optimised the standard shift assistant Pro. It now also permits gearshifts with overrun upshifts and overrun downshifts and provides improved load change damping – for more gearshifting precision. And even the chain ring has more teeth now: just like in the M RR, it now has 46 teeth instead of 45 – for more power down the straight.

Framework –?literally

Precision work for more feedback and performance on your ride: The M chassis kit with raised rear end and adjustable swing arm pivot is standard. Frame recesses ensure greater lateral flexibility. We have lowered the steering head angle 0.5° to 66.4° and decreased the fork bridges offset 3 mm to 26.5 mm, making your front wheel even more precise. We also used captive axle bushes and optimised the brake system to make removing the rear wheel even easier in practice. You can now also choose the damping for DDC Road, Dynamic, and Race: from Race Pro 1 to 3. Using the Race Pro 1 to 3 settings, you can now ride with road damping on country roads.

Cornering, redefined

The optional Pro riding mode and the steering angle sensor, installed for the first time, let you use two functions: Brake Slide Assist for deceleration, and DTC Slide Control for acceleration. The steering angle sensor helps determine your drift angle, which the DTC uses to ensure optimal slip. DTC settings 2 and 3 have been optimised for the racetrack and slicks. After a power slide, Brake Slide Assist helps you decelerate so that you can slide into a curve using the front/rear ABS.

Three variants, one character

No matter which variant you choose: in this case, not millimetres or milliseconds are crucial, it’s all about your preferences. However, one thing is clear: each RR is geared towards pure performance.

Sportiness is passed down in dominant genes

Super sporty and uncompromisingly compact. We have retained these basic design values of the RR. More than that, we have made them even sharper: from the front end with the aerodynamically optimised windscreen and the lights in striking LED design, to the side trim panels with winglet and the short and dynamic rear end. Plus the easily removable number plate carrier and optional tail-hump cover for the passenger seat prove that we have even focused the design of the RR on performance down to the last detail.
