The New BMW M 1000 RR – BMW Motorrad meets the M
Introducing the most powerful letter in the world to the BMW Motorrad portfolio has brought the new BMW M 1000 RR life, as it offers whole new world of exhilaration on the racetrack. The characteristically M design language lent to the New BMW M 1000 RR is seen in the chassis design that is trimmed for racetrack use with modified geometry, optimised wheel load distribution and extended adjustability of the swinging arm pivot point. The optimised upside-down fork and revised central spring strut come complete with Full Floater Pro kinematics. The new M winglets and high windscreen also offer earlier acceleration with more stability when cornering, thanks to the aerodynamic downforce without any reduction in maximum speed.
The New BMW M 1000 RR uses a water-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine based on the RR power train with BMW ShiftCam technology for varying valve timing and valve lift, achieving a peak output of 156 kW (212 HP) at 14,500 rpm. The maximum torque of 113 Nm is applied at 11,000 rpm. In addition to a maximum speed increased to 15,100 rpm, the engine has extensive technical optimisations such as the new 2-ring forged pistons from Mahle, adapted combustion chambers, compression increased to 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 optimisations on camshafts and intake area. The lightweight exhaust system is also made of titanium, along with the front and rear silencers.
The New BMW M 1000 RR is equipped with “Rain”, “Road”, “Dynamic”, “Race”, and “Race Pro1-3” riding modes, along with the latest generation of the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and DTC wheelie function with 6-axle sensor box. Two adjustable characteristic throttle curves also offer optimum response characteristics, while the engine brake arrives with threefold adjustable engine drag torque in “Race Pro” mode. The Shift Assistant Pro, an anti-hopping clutch for optimum Launch Control, the Pit-Lane Limiter, and the Hill Start Control Pro also equip the New BMW M 1000 RR.
The new model also features an instrument cluster with clearly readable 6.5-inch TFT display and OBD interface that can be used with an activation code for the M GPS data logger and M GPS laptrigger. Other notable standard equipment for the New BMW M 1000 RR includes M brakes – a first for BMW Motorrad, M carbon wheels, M lightweight battery, USB charging socket in the rear, and an anti-theft alarm system. Arriving in a combination of Light White, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing Red (BMW Motorrad Motorsport for M Package), the New BMW M 1000 RR will be available at selected authorised BMW Motorrad dealerships nationwide from 27 th August 2021.
The New BMW S 1000 R – twice the options, twice the thrill
The iconic superbike arrives in two new variants: Style Sport and with the BMW M Package – both offerings unique equipment that will raise the benchmark in the Superbike segment once again. Available in the Hockenheim Silver Metallic for the Style Sport variant, and a combination of Light White, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing Red (BMW Motorrad Motorsport for M Package) for the BMW M Package variant, the New BMW S 1000 R also features adaptive LED headlights and brake lights, along with the Headlight Pro and Daytime Running Lamp offerings.
The New BMW S 1000 R continues to be powered by the formidable water/oil-cooled 4-cylinder 4- stroke in-line engine with a capacity of 999 cc and a maximum output of 152 kW / 207 hp at 13,500 rpm. The New BMW S 1000 R also features a torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm, consuming 6.4 litres of fuel per 100 km of travel. The New BMW S 1000 R is also equipped with the BMW ShiftCam Technology which varies the titanium valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side.
The new variants are equipped with four riding modes as standard – “Rain”, “Road”, Dynamic” and “Race”, complete with the Riding Mode Pro. These riding modes also control functions such as the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and ABS Pro for increased safety when braking or in banking position, while the BMW Motorrad Integral ABS system provides an even higher degree of safety coupled with the Dynamic Engine Brake Control (DBC). The Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) also equips the new variants, along with Cruise Control and the HP Shift Assistant Pro.
The New BMW S 1000 R in the BMW M Package variant will exclusively feature the new BMW M Endurance Chain which is maintenance-free and offers maximum environmental sustainability, as the chain has a resident permanent lubricant filling between the rollers and pins, enclosed by X-rings. Additional lubricant addition for the rollers is now no longer necessary, nor is any re tensioning required from time to time due to the usual wear. With the excellent dry lubrication properties and the elimination of wear, the tetrahedral amorphous carbon coated rollers of the M Endurance chain offer maintenance comfort equivalent to that of a shaft drive motorcycle.
The New BMW S 1000 R also arrives complete with the Keyless Ride function, USB Charging Socket, Passenger Package, and heated grips, along with a motorspoiler. Exclusive equipment and accessories offered to the BMW M Package variant consist of the M sport seat, M light weight battery, Sports Silencer, and M GPS Laptrigger.
