2023 BMW S 1000 RR Features

Outstanding braking

Pushing towards the head of the class: the brake originates from the M RR. For deceleration with maximum braking stability and feedback – paired with precise adaptation to Race ABS.

M Carbon tail-hump cover with camera adapter

Attach an action cam to the carbon seat pad; featuring a recess with an adapter and install the GPS mouse of the M data logger including lap trigger.

New rear end with short license plate carrier

More than just appearance: The new rear makes the RR seem even lighter, sportier and more dynamic. The optionally available M Cover kit for track days is easy to attach, just like in professional racing.

Optimized engine concept

Details and transfers from motorsport: The cylinder head geometry is identical to that in the M RR. In addition, the power output is 205 hp.

Dynamic front view and tall windscreen

Reduce helmet vibration: newly designed front with tall windscreen provides improved aerodynamics around the head. The isolation of the fork bridge brings about further aerodynamic advantages.

Performance-oriented M Data Logger with GPS-Laptrigger

Work like the professionals: the optionally available M Data Logger with GPS-Laptrigger makes it possible to automatically record lap times and evaluate relevant riding data on more than 300 racetracks worldwide. European model shown.

Powerful M Lightweight battery

Every ounce counts: the high-quality and durable M Lightweight battery with state-of-the-art lithium-ion technology saves a full 4.4 lbs of weight.

Efficient front and side trim panel with winglet

Up to 37.7 lbs: front and side trim panels have been reworked for optimal downforce and improved aerodynamics. The winglets, familiar from the M RR, have been specially modified.
