2021 BMW M1000RR Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

M RR four-cylinder engine based on the RR engine for racing sport. More peak power and increased maximum engine speed.

The new M 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 that has been modified comprehensively in the direction of a racing sport engine. It achieves its 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 M RR engine has extensive technical optimisations such as 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. The new M RR engine is even more powerful than the RR power train in the range from 6,000 rpm to 15,100 rpm, a range that is particularly relevant for race track driving dynamics, but without losing its qualities as a fascinating source of power for sporty driving on country roads.

M winglets and high windscreen: Braking later and accelerating earlier thanks to the aerodynamic downforce without any reduction in maximum speed.

The aerodynamics were a decisive point in the technical specifications for development work of the M RR. In addition to a maximum speed that is as high as possible and absolutely necessary for winning races, there was another objective in the technical specifications of the M RR: to establish the best possible contact of the wheels with the road – especially when accelerating. The M winglets on the trim front, which were developed during intensive testing on the race track and in the BMW Group’s wind tunnel and are made of clear-coat carbon, take this into account as they produce aerodynamic downforce and thus additional wheel loads according to the speed. The additional wheel load on the front wheel counteracts wheelie inclination, traction control regulates less, more driving power is converted into acceleration and the driver achieves faster lap times. The effect of the winglets is also noticeable in curves and when braking, the downforce allows later braking and ensures increased cornering stability.

Chassis design trimmed for race track use with modified geometry, optimized wheel load distribution and extended adjustability of the swinging arm pivot point.

The chassis of the new M RR is based on the RR with the bridge frame made of aluminium at its centrepiece. It has an optimized upside-down fork as well as a revised central spring strut with blue spring and Full Floater Pro kinematics. The primary objective of the chassis design was to achieve the best possible lap times on the race track. The chassis of the M RR is therefore uncompromisingly designed for the race track, but also convinces with qualities for country roads. Special attention was paid to optimising drivability, the braking and anti-squat control as well as the best possible feeling of the driver for the front and rear wheel.

M brakes for the first time at BMW Motorrad as well as M carbon wheels as standard.

With the new M RR, there is a BMW motorcycle with an M brake for the first time – like the M vehicles of BMW M GmbH. It was developed directly from the experience with the racing brakes of BMW Motorrad company racing machines in the Superbike World Championship and provides maximum fading stability and controllability. Externally, the M brake callipers have a blue anodized coating in combination with the M logo. With the M carbon wheels, the new M RR has more high-tech components for maximum performance on the race track and road.

Instrument cluster with perfectly readable 6.5-inch TFT display and OBD interface that can be used with activation code for the M GPS data logger and M GPS laptrigger.

The instrument cluster of the new M RR has the same basic design as the RR and has an M start animation. As part of the optional equipment, an activation code (contents of M competition package) can be used to provide comprehensive data material for the use of the M GPS laptrigger and M GPS data logger (Original BMW Motorrad Accessories) via the OBD interface of the instrument cluster.

Born for racing: M design and dynamic form language of the M RR indicate ultimate race track performance.

The new M RR emphasizes its racing genes with the light white solid paint/M Sport colour scheme in the basic colours light blue, dark blue and red. Further features of the M RR are the engine covers in granite grey and the fuel filler cap painted black.

Uncompromising in design and technology: The M RR with M competition package.

For those who are still not satisfied with the new M RR in standard trim, the M competition package provides a fascinating mixture of classy components for the racing technology gourmet and the aesthete at the same time. In addition to the M GPS laptrigger software and the corresponding activation code, the M competition package also includes the M milled parts package, the M carbon package as well as a silver 220 g lighter swinging arm, the friction-optimized, maintenance-free and DLC-coated M Endurance chain and the passenger package including tail-hump cover.

 

Pure will to win
The assembly of the M RR has been developed in sports racing and perfected for the road. For this purpose, we have increased the power of the four-cylinder in-line engine from the RR: For a higher torque in the mid-range. And we have increased the maximum speed by 500 rpm to 15,100 rpm. The titanium connecting rods are lighter, the rocker arms are 1.5 mm narrower, the airbox funnel has been shortened for better load changes: Millimetre work for milliseconds. In addition, there are 2-ring forged pistons with cross-ribbing and cylinder heads with new channel geometry and reinforced bearing brackets. Overall result: More dynamics and reduced mass inertia. For a shorter ratio, even the sprocket has been given a tooth and the chain itself and the wheelbase have also been lengthened. The anti-hopping clutch works without self-reinforcement – for the perfect launch control.

 

More pressure: the M Winglets
The contact pressure also determines victory or defeat. The M winglets made of carbon generate a downforce of 16.3 kg. In combination with the high windscreen, you can convert more power into pure propulsion. Before the curve, in the curve, and when accelerating out of the curve. The front wheel pulls straight into the apex and the fork keeps contact with the ground; the DTC has to intervene less. And you save the wheelie for the finish line.

 

We see the M RR in side view.
Intuitive, clear, honest, direct – this is how feedback should be
Only what you feel will drive you forward. The chassis and geometry of the M RR are trimmed for the racetrack. For more performance on the track and in the pits. The drivability, braking and starting pitch compensation provide more feeling for the front and rear wheel. Even on country roads. The longer wheelbase makes the M RR much more comfortable. The easily adjustable pivot point has been rescaled and enlarged. And the new rear axle – also thanks to the adapted brake piston – allows quick rear-wheel changes. This is where the pit lane meets your will to perfection.

Uncompromising acceleration – but the other way round
We have developed the best brake piston on the market for us. One result, three words: Best in class. We have optimised the fluid balance for greater pressure point stability. In addition to the standard brake pad, you can also choose a different one. This comes from the Endurance World Championship and is intended exclusively for the racetrack. Together with the ideally combined operating element and saddle, this results in maximum brake stability and feedback, as well as superb coordination with the RACE ABS. The M brake is therefore an ideal reference.

Two versions, one goal: Pure performance
Every M RR stands for absolute dedication and the will to perform. In its basic version, it is made for racing – and working on grams and milliseconds. With the M Competition Package, it boasts M milled parts and M carbon parts and highlights the sporty look.

 

Circuits know no end – neither does perfection
Can perfection be increased? Decide for yourself: The M RR is available as a basic version and optionally as an M RR with the Competition Package. In addition, we offer you numerous M Performance Parts to customise your M RR. Many of the parts can be installed quickly, turning your street version of the M RR into a racetrack machine in minutes. But even here there is room for improvement: the M RR with M Performance Race Parts – here only the racetrack counts.

The strongest letter in the world
M is synonymous worldwide with success in racing and is aimed at riders with particularly high demands regarding performance, exclusivity and individuality. Find out more about the M RR and the M family here.
