The 2023 BMW M 1000 R continues the celebrations to mark the brands' 50th anniversary.

The 2023 BMW M 1000 R is designed to meet the highest demands on the road and track and continues the year-long celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the BMW M high performance division.

With an engine output of 154kW (210 hp), a wet weight of just 199kg, and suspension technology and aerodynamics designed for both high-performance road and track use, the new M R delivers a dynamic riding experience.


Powerful M R engine

The new M R features a modified in-line-4 based on the power unit of the S 1000 RR with a peak power output of 154kW (210hp) at 13,750 rpm, which represents a 33kW (45hp) increase.

Maximum torque of 113Nm is generated at 11,000rpm (S 1000 R: 114Nm at 9,250 rpm). Compared with the S 1000 R, maximum revs of the M R are now an impressive 14,600rpm.

M winglets

The new M R winglets provide more riding stability at high speeds and an increase in front wheel load of 11kg at 220km/h thanks to the aerodynamic downforce generated.

Suspension and chassis

The suspension and chassis of the new M R are based on the S 1000 R with the aluminium bridge frame as the centrepiece. On the M R, the front wheel is controlled by an upside-down fork with a 45mm sliding tube diameter in an “All black” design.

It is equipped with adjustable fork spring base in conjunction with the standard Dynamic Damping Control (DDC).

M brakes

The new M R is the second BMW motorcycle to feature an M brake system following the M 1000 RR.

Together with two 320mm brake discs of 5mm thickness and black anodised aluminium brake disc carriers, the brake system equipped with a new radial hand brake pump currently marks the pinnacle of brake development in the field of road-legal systems.

The new M R is equipped with lightweight forged aluminium wheels as standard but can be specified with exclusive M Carbon wheels as part of the M Competition package.

Brake Slide Assist

The new Brake Slide Assist function on the M R represents a significant innovation –  especially for track riders – in enabling a brake drift into corners with a constant and controlled slide.

6.5-inch TFT display

The extended display of the red speed range is additionally a new feature for the M R. As optional equipment, comprehensive data material for using the M GPS Laptrigger and the M GPS Datalogger can be provided by means of an activation code via the OBD interface of the instrument cluster.

M Competition Package

In addition to the Blackstorm metallic/M Motorsport colour scheme, the M Competition package includes M Carbon wheels, M rider footrest system, M Carbon parts such as rear wheel cover and chain guard, front wheel cover, tank covers, airbox cover with tapes, wind deflector, sprocket cover, the M pillion package as well as the M pillion cover and a milled, fully adjustable M rider footrest system.
