BMW’s M Division Releases An Ultra-Quick 212HP Carbon Fiber Superbike

Originally founded as BMW Motorsport GmbH in 1972, BMW’s in-house tuning subdivision has created some of the most iconic sports sedans of all time. From the 3.0 CSL coupé to the E46 M3, M cars have routinely won the hearts of auto enthusiasts with their exceptional performance and pure driving experience. And while BMW M GmbH has dabbled in the world of motorcycles before, there had yet to be a dedicated M bike until now.

Dubbed the ‘M 1000 RR,’ the latest creation from the German giant’s motorsport division is a no-expense-spared racing-optimized riff on the S 1000 RR superbike. Featuring a long list of drivetrain upgrades — including Mahle pistons, adapted combustion chambers, increased engine compression, and titanium Pankl connecting rods — the M RR’s inline-four puts out some 212hp and redlines all the way to 15,100rpm. It also gains a slew of styling touches to ensure its aerodynamics are on par with its engine performance, such as carbon winglets for downforce and a high windscreen for stability. Top it all off with a track-designed aluminum chassis as well as some M brakes and carbon wheels, and what results is a range-topping superbike ready to dominate the competition.
