2023 BMW M1000 R – Highlights & Features

  • So technically, the bikes carrying the ‘M’ moniker from BMW are homologated motorcycle models that are actually run on the World SuperBike (WSBK) Championship. 
  • Hence, the BMW M1000 R is the homologated model of the super-naked they compete in the WSBK category of races across the globe. 
  • This is the reason why, though not donning the aggressive fairing, the M1000 R is not lacking any power or technology its monstrous track-focused sibling is strapped with. 
  • The major difference that can be seen on the hyper-roadster is the tweaks added that make it more suitable for use on streets, rather than on the track. 
  • The 2023 M1000 R is harnessing the power of the staple 999 cc. Inline-4 monstrous engine with the BMW patented ShiftCam technology. 
  • The improved engine boasting Titanium valves & Narrow rocker arms puts out a massive 210 HP (205 HP in the US) at a screaming 13,000 RPM and 112.5 Nm of torque at 11,000 RPM. 
  • Yet, the shorter 4th, 5th and 6th gear ratios combined with a 47-tooth rear sprocket make the bike sprightly on urban streets. 
  • The R model is riding on Aluminium forged wheels and has packed on more weight due to the added road-oriented M package. 
  • The suspension is no longer electronically-adjustable like the RR sibling but is manually adjustable at the front and the rear. 
  • The M Competition trim is also on offer that adds – M Carbon wheels, M Carbon package, M Billet package, a passenger seat cover, and a GPS lap timer. 

As for the M roadster making its way to the Indian shore, it is highly unlikely that the Germans will bring this flagship hyper-roadster anytime soon. 

Yet, one can hope so…
