2023 BMW M1000RR 50 Years M: THE MOST POWERFUL LETTER.

Introducing the 2023 BMW M1000RR 50 Years M…

To mark the 50th anniversary of BMW M GmbH, founded in 1972 as BMW Motorsport GmbH, BMW Motorrad presents the M 1000 RR 50 Years M anniversary edition in Sao Paulo Yellow with historic 50 years BMW M badging. This striking combination pays homage to the spirit from almost 100 years of BMW Motorrad production and from 50 years of BMW M vehicles. To get the anniversary edition, the M 1000 RR should be equipped with the optional 50 Years ///M Package. In addition to the extensive use of M milled aluminum and M carbon parts, this package features a lighter silver anodized aluminum swingarm, M GPS lap trigger unlock software as well as the M endurance chain and passenger seat and seat cover.

The M 1000 RR can also be ordered in non-anniversary guise by selecting the Light White / M Motorsport Competition Package.

 

M – The Most Powerful Letter in the World

At the end of 2018, BMW Motorrad unveiled M special equipment and M Performance parts for selected existing motorcycle models. The M 1000 RR, the first BMW motorcycle to bear the M brand name made its world debut in September of 2020.

The letter M is synonymous worldwide with racing success as well as with high performance BMW vehicles aimed at customers with high demands for performance, exclusivity and individuality. The BMW M 1000 RR delivers on all of these expectations and continues the racing tradition of BMW M by being the base bike for the BMW Motorrad World Superbike Team since 2021 as well as being used by many race teams around the world.

 

RACING LIKE NO OTHER – WITH UNIQUE M DNA

24 May 1972. BMW Motorsport GmbH and today’s BMW M GmbH launch operations. The goal had been clearly defined – and it was revolutionary for the circumstances at the time: BMW’s racing activities would be bundled and professionalized under one roof. Motorsport with its diverse challenges would fuel the construction of vehicles and engines. The iconic BMW Motorsport emblem with the three colors blue, red and violet is a striking, distinguishing feature.

BMW Motorsport GmbH and BMW M GmbH

BMW Motorsport GmbH was founded in 1972 with the idea of uniting all BMW motorsport activities under one roof and consolidating the construction of high-performance race cars and race engines. The BMW 3.0 CSL (CSL = Coupe Sport Light) made its debut as the first race car from BMW Motorsport GmbH in 1973. On the occasion of the foundation of BMW Motorsport GmbH, Robert A. Lutz, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG for Sales in 1972, stated: “A company is like a human being. If it does sports, it stays fit, enthusiastic, more effective and powerful.”

The BMW 3.0 CSL made its debut in the European Touring Car Championship in 1973 sporting the three defining BMW Motorsport colors of blue, violet and red on a snow-white background. Today’s updated Motorsport colors of are Blue – Dark Blue and Red.

This legendary color combination could be found on BMW M street vehicles which appeared in the second half of the 1970s as well as on successful race cars. Iconic cars such as the 1978 BMW M1 and the Brabham BMW with which Nelson Piquet won the 1983 Formula 1 World Championship.

From Isle of Man to Dakar – BMW Motorrad and motorsports

Racing success was not the exclusive realm of four-wheeled BMW vehicles however. Innovation stems from motorsport and this was especially true in the early decades. Legendary names from those early years include Ernst Jakob Henne who set no less than 76 world land speed records between 1929 and 1937 on supercharged BMW motorcycles and Georg “Schorsch” Meier who won the 1939 Senior Tourist Trophy on the Isle of Man on his 500cc supercharged BMW.

In 1976, exactly 37 years later, Helmut Dähn and Hans Otto Butenuth celebrated fifth place in the Isle of Man Production TT class. They had actually set the fastest time on their BMW R 90 S but due to handicap rules, they were listed in fifth place behind two 250cc and two 500cc motorcycles. Nevertheless, given the fastest time, this fifth place was celebrated like a victory.

74 years after “Schorsch” Meier’s success in the Senior TT, Michael Dunlop rode his BMW S 1000 RR to victory in the 2014 Isle of Man TT Superbike race. In the following years, the RR would go on to leave its unmistakable mark on the TT with more victories.

BMW M colors would also be represented in off-road conditions such as the Paris-Dakar rallies of the early 1980s which were dominated by BMW GS factory riders Hubert Auriol and Gaston Rahier.

Like no other BMW motorcycles, the M 1000 RR 50 Years M model carries all of this historic motorsport DNA within it.

 

 

 

 

2023 BMW M1000RR 50 Years M Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

For 50 years, BMW M has been synonymous with a drive and passion, racing technology and racing success, as well as striving for perfection and top performance in cars and motorcycles – worldwide. This historic DNA is united in the M RR 50 Years M. With its extraordinary genes, it has been created for everyone with particularly high demands in terms of performance, exclusivity and individuality.

Born on the race track
The M RR 50 Years M edition comes with the 50 Years M package including M carbon-fiber and milled parts, M Endurance chain, an anodized aluminum rocker, the Passenger package and the activation code for the M GPS lap trigger.

M 1000 RR 50 Years M in Sao Paulo Yellow

The M RR 50 Years M with the BMW 50 Years M emblem and its striking color stands out from the crowd. It is therefore in the best M tradition: M models have always been exclusive and extraordinary.

ACTIVE PERFORMANCE CONCEPT
In 1973, the BMW 3.0 CSL competed in the European Touring Car Championship as the first race car bearing the colors of the M logo. Colors that characterize the entire team presence and thus underpin the inimitable team spirit. CSL stands for Coupé Sport Lightweight construction. And not without reason: the vehicle’s weight had been cut by almost 400 lbs by uncompromising work on the vehicle.

In 1976, Helmut Dähne and Hans Otto Butenuth set the fastest time on the Isle of Man in the legendary Senior Tourist Trophy in the series-production engine category with a displacement of up to 1000 cc. A lot of work had already been done here: an R 90 S had been optimized for racing and improved with a new, outstanding trim. In recent years, our RR and M RR models have continued to shape the TT.

ENTHRALLING ENTHUSIASM
The BMW M1 super sports car entered the M1 Procar series in 1978. For the first time – in addition to the stripes – the M logo had also been added to a vehicle. Consistent because the M1’s impressive body design, that captivates to this day, was also devised by Giorgio Guigiaro. At the time, the road version caused a sensation not only thanks to its appearance, but also as the “fastest sports car in Germany”.

In 1985, the M colors were once again at the top of the podium: Belgian Gaston Rahier won the Paris Dakar Rallye for the second time running on his GS 1000 works bike. After Hubert Auriol had already been successful with his BMW in 1981 and 1983. Even in scarcely populated regions of the world, blue, red and violet have become a byword for performance, team spirit and victories in motorsport.

More than a symbol
Blue for BMW, red for motorsport and dark blue for the unique combination of the two: the uniform appearance was already revolutionary in 1972. In 1978, the logo was added with the three colored stripes inclined towards the letter M, emphasizing speed and dynamics. It was developed by Giorgio Giugiaro, Italdesign. And to this day, it has lost none of its radiance.

Racing DNA in every detail
The M RR 50 Years M has also been uncompromisingly geared towards performance off the road: With the available M Cover Kit, the Sport assembly stand including the assembly stand mounts and the motorcycle carpet, the M RR is ready for every race track and for new victories.

 

UNIQUE GENETICS THE M DNA
It’s in all of us: Adrenaline, passion and the will to continually improve ourselves. For almost 100 years, BMW Motorrad riders have been celebrating motorsport success and records all over the world.

Since 1929, victories in the automotive sector have been added to this list. The M success story ultimately began in 1972 with the founding of BMW Motorsport GmbH, today’s BMW M GmbH. Our credo: M Power, maximum performance and an outstanding overall vehicle concept for the racetrack and road. The numerous racing successes and the many years of BMW M engineering know how are incorporated in all BMW M vehicles. The new BMW M3 and M4 were developed primarily on the Nürburgring and other racetracks. The M RR also originates directly from the racetrack. The vehicles are consistently geared to motorsports and assert their claim to leadership.

M – The most powerful letter in the world
Well-trained, enthusiastic, efficient. These attributes have shaped the founding manifesto of BMW Motorsport since 1972. BMW M GmbH was created based on the same philosophy. Inspired by motorsport, BMW M cars more than meet the highest standards of precision, agility, dynamics and power. Powerful engines, an outstanding overall vehicle concept, combined with expressive design and exclusive equipment show just how much passion goes into each of these High-Performance and Performance vehicles. And yet they’re still great for everyday use.

DEVELOPMENT
The common starting point for every M vehicle is the sporting challenge, the will to win and the pure demand for performance. This is the basis for our premises and prerequisites for the development of our vehicles in terms of technology, materials and design – from M cars to motorbikes such as the M RR. Because our goal is always the same: highest performance – and of course the best times.

A TRIBUTE TO MOTORSPORT
M RR 50 Years M anniversary model: embodying almost 100 years of racing spirit in motorcycle production and half a century of M DNA. Its equipment includes the 50 Years M package with M carbon-fiber and M milled parts, the M Endurance chain, aluminum anodized swing arm, Passenger package and the activation code for the M GPS lap trigger. With its Sao Paulo Yellow paintwork and the BMW M 50 Years emblem, it stands out: exclusive and extraordinary – typically for an M model.
