It was only a week ago that BMW revealed the all-new BMW S 1000 RR, the latest and ridiculously fast two-wheeled entry for the superbike market. With 154 kW of power on tap, it's set to be the superbike to have if speed is all what you’re all about. This is BMW though, and that means there’s always the possibility of a special edition model that’s just that little bit cooler than usual. Released to the world at the same time as the all-new BMW M2, we now have the second motorbike by BMW M in the form of the BMW M R. "The M R is the second M model from BMW Motorrad. Based on the current S 1000 R and S 1000 RR, the product substance of the M 1000 R - M R for short - has been tuned to meet the specific requirements of a supersport roadster. The riding dynamics speak for themselves both on the country road and on the race track." Ralf Mölleken, Project Manager 4-cylinder models.
So that M Competition Package. It takes the already aggressive-looking BMW M 1000 R to the next level, at a healthy premium too, no doubt. This gives the M R a new Blackstorm metallic / M Motorsport combination colour scheme and component changes includes a set of M Carbon wheels, an M rider footrest system, an M Carbon rear wheel cover, an M Carbon chain guard, an M Carbon front wheel cover, M Carbon tank covers, an M Carbon airbox cover with tapes, an M Carbon wind deflector, an M Carbon sprocket cover, the M pillion package and also the M pillion cover with a milled, fully adjustable M rider footrest system. Local pricing is yet to be announced, but so far the BMW M 1000 R should be available from Q1 of 2023 and translated from US pricing should be over the R400 000 mark.
