Less than a year after its global reveal, the 2021 BMW M 1000 RR finally arrived in Malaysia as announced by BMW Motorrad Malaysia.
Based on what we gathered previously on a limited run of the M 1000 RR will be made available for the local market with an official price of RM249,500 making it the most expensive BMW Motorrad 2021 range.
Build based on the success of the BMW S 1000 RR, BMW Motorrad decided it is time to inject the “M” into the German automaker two-wheel segment.
This road-legal BMW M 1000 RR carries an upgraded version of the S 1000 RR’s 999cc inline-four engine with new lighter forged pistons, intake ports, titanium valves, longer titanium conrods optimized intake system, and a brand-new Akrapovic titanium full-system race exhaust.
This resulted in an overall power increase to a whopping 212hp at 14,500rpm and 113Nm torque at 11,000rpm. With a kerb weight of only 192kg, you can expect some serious performance especially paired with updated suspension, electronics and braking systems designed to conquer the world of Superbikes.
Perhaps the most visible change to the BMW M 1000 RR or M RR is M Winglets and high windscreen that offers significant improvements to the aerodynamics department without compromising top speed.
Other specs include:
- Launch Control with Pitlane Limiter
- M Carbon Wheels
- M GPS data logger & lap trigger
- Lightweight M battery
- Adjustable characteristic throttle curves
- Shift Assistant Pro
- New selectable riding modes + more
Arriving in a combination of Light White, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing (M Package) the M 1000 R will be available from 27 August onwards.
