2023 BMW M 1000 R Features

Powerful M brake

Makes your overtaking maneuvers accurately controllable: the M brake. Identifiable by excellent performance and the clear-cut, stable resistance point – and visually identifiable by the blue anodized coating with M logo.

Striking handlebar end mirrors

Trigger a genuine desire to attack: the new handlebar end mirrors, which you are familiar with as special accessories for the S 1000 R. On the M R, they provide the ultimate hyper roadster look as standard.

Exclusive M Competition package

The cherry on top: M Competition package. With its Blackstorm Metallic paint, high-quality carbon-fiber parts, M Carbon wheels and exclusive special accessories, the M R is an impressive overall package.

Striking front end with M winglets

Stay in control when accelerating thanks to M winglets generating aerodynamic downforce – for more riding stability at higher speeds up to top speed.

Short license plate carrier

More aggressive, shorter, more compact: the license plate carrier forms a visual unit with the turn indicator and license plate lights. The function of the brake light and rear light has been integrated into the turn indicator lights.

Exclusive M start-up animation and Race riding modes

M start-up animation: the ultimate start signal for your adrenaline. Select your riding mode on the TFT display depending on the challenge: Rain, Road, Dynamic, Race or Race Pro 1-3.

High-performance M R four-cylinder engine

Do you want to dominate the roads? The high-torque, four-cylinder engine with ShiftCam technology and 205 hp has been designed for this purpose: both for the race track and super-sporty use on country roads.

Lightweight M Carbon wheels

Unmistakably a product of the M factory: optional M Carbon wheels with M Competition package graphic design. Reduced rotating masses and 3.5 lbs less weight improve handling and performance.
