After a long period of rumors, BMW has now unveiled the M 1000 R, a further upgraded naked version of the S 1000 R or S 1000 RR, which BMW also calls the “M R” for short.
Like the M 1000 RR, which is an even sportier version of the S 1000 RR, they are now trading in the naked bike. Here, however, they are really going all out.
Whereas 165 PS provided propulsion in the previous S 1000 R, the new engine of the S 1000 RR is installed in the M version, which will also provide propulsion in the M 1000 R with 210 PS (154 kW). For the M R, however, the engine has been revised somewhat. BMW has not yet revealed anything more specific about what exactly has been done, but it can be assumed that it has at least been tuned for more torque in the lower and medium rev ranges.
Maximum power is reached at 13,750 rpm, maximum torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm. Maximum speed is at 14,600 rpm.
A top speed of 280 km/h should be achieved. Compared to the double-R, the chainring has been fitted with one more tooth (now 47), resulting in a shorter gear ratio. Gears four, five and six were also translated even shorter.
Aerodynamics and equipment
The powerful winglets provide downforce at the front. At a speed of 220 km/h, they are said to increase downforce by 11 kg, which counteracts wheel tilt and increases driving stability.
A semi-active suspension system has been installed, which is already familiar from the previous S 1000 R. The brakes have been modified. The brakes are from the M range. Instead of the standard forged wheels, carbon wheels are also available as an option.
The new Brake Slide System is used for the assistance assistants, which enables braking drifts with a constant slide into the bend.
The weight is stated at 199 kg, and the price starts at €22,600 in Germany.
Highlights of the new BMW M 1000 R.
- Switching cam engine of the M RR, power 154 kW (210 hp) at 13 750 min-1 and thus 33 kW (45 hp) more than in the S 1000 R. Maximum torque of 113 Nm at 11 000 min-1 (S 1000 R: 114 Nm at 9 250 min-1).
- Shorter secondary gear ratio (sprocket with 47 teeth instead of 45).
- Shorter gear ratios of 4th, 5th and 6th gears.
- Optimized intake system with variable intake funnels for improved charge exchange at high rpm.
