The BMW M 1000 XR

Born to lead

This is it: the lightest and most powerful production crossover bike in the world. Nothing less. An M bike through and through. Trimmed down for maximum performance – in this case, long-distance performance. That's why it's called the M XR. Or, as we like to call it: MaXimizeR. Because this bike maximises everything: your riding experience, your endurance and, whenever you want, your adrenaline. Alternatively, you can confidently relax while travelling great distances. After all, you know you can leave everyone behind on a whim. #NeverStopChallenging.

Born on the Racetrack

You sense it immediately. The M XR bears that M DNA. It embodies everything that the most powerful letter in the world stands for: leadership, supremacy and playful, effortless dominance. The letter "M" promises top-notch machining with outstanding materials and equipment. Riding an M bike requires excellent riding skills. M combines the fascination of motorsport with a lifestyle in the fast lane. The third M model completes our four-cylinder range.

Maximum exclusivity

Maximum exclusivity

Not only visually an M. The M XR is comprehensively equipped with M parts. Right from the start with a glance at the display, the M start-up animation brings you into the M sports world. While the M Sport seat allows you to ride without fatigue, the M winglets provide increased contact pressure on the road through aerodynamic downforce. And the M brake also makes performance precisely controllable.

The Sound of M

Brute force in your hands

Brute force in your hands

Climb on and you are constantly reminded: the M XR can move you at over 275 km/h. From 0 to 100 in 3.2 seconds; to 200 in 7.4. This is made possible by the BMW ShiftCam four-cylinder engine of the RR, adapted for the XR, with 201 hp (147 kW) at a maximum speed of 14,600 rpm. In conjunction with the sports gearbox with shorter ratios in 4th, 5th and 6th gear, as well as a shorter secondary ratio, the M XR is perfected for performance-oriented long-distance journeys. This helps you take the lead whenever you feel like it.

The aura of a champion

Unmistakable M

Performance has three colours: light blue, dark blue and red. The characteristic M colour scheme gives the M XR its unmistakeable look. In the rare moments it is at a standstill, you can see the love of motorsport – not only in the colours, but in many details.

Light white/M Motorsport

The standard bike in the colour Light white solid paint with M Tapes focuses on stark contrasts. The M XR is also recognisable as an M bike by the standard M brake in blue.

Blackstorm metallic/M Motorsport

With the optional M Competition package, it comes in a more powerful Blackstorm metallic colour with M tapes – an impression that the M carbon wheels enhances further.

The measure of all things

The measure of all things

Perfection is the sum of all details. No millimetre has been left to chance. With elaborate M paintwork and exclusive parts, like the milled M clutch lever and M brake lever, the design sets sporty standards. The shorter, tinted sports windscreen also demonstrates that this bike originates from the M Motorsport mould.
