BMW Motorrad have taken their gloves off and have launched the ‘M’ version of their flagship roadster – 2023 M1000 R – kitted with all the goodies found on the faired sibling.
BMW themselves have described the new M1000 R as a Hyper-Roadster with more power, more M goodies and added aerodynamic winglets to make it even more of a street monster.

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…
