2023 BMW M 1000 RR Photo Gallery

Even more photos of BMW’s latest M 1000 RR.

BMW is proud of its 2023 M 1000 RR. So proud, in fact, that Project Manager Christian Gonschor claims, “We have achieved an engineering masterpiece in the aerodynamic development of the M RR due to our unwavering ambition, total passion, and technical finesse.”

Updated based on countless hours in the wind tunnel and in road tests, the M 1000 RR does indeed appear to take another technical leap at a time when aerodynamics are front of mind. The biggest benefits, BMW claims, are increased downforce, a higher top speed, and increased comfort thanks to improved airflow.

Two versions of the M 1000 RR are available: The standard M 1000 RR is available in Lighwhite non-metallic, while the M 1000 RR M Competition (shown) is available in Blackstorm Metallic. The M Competition Package includes an anodized aluminum swingarm, GPS laptrigger, M Endurance chain, passenger seat cover, plus a long list of parts from BMW’s M Milled Parts package and M Carbon package.BMW

Redesigned winglets are said to generate significantly more aerodynamic downforce, both in an upright riding position and when banking. An added benefit is reduced wheelie tendency.BMW
A closer look at the 2023 BMW M 1000 RR’s new winglets. The design is said to increase downforce by 3.5 pounds at 95 mph and roughly 13.9 pounds at 186 mph. In total, these winglets add 50 pounds of downforce at 186 mph.BMW

A taller windscreen is used for 2023. BMW claims a “noticeable physical relief due to the greatly improved airflow.”BMW
Another benefit of the newly designed fairing and higher windscreen is a claimed 5 mph increase in top speed.BMW

A new front mudguard improves airflow around the fork legs and brake calipers. Brake cooling air ducts have also been incorporated into the design.BMW
The brake ducts are said to reduce the temperature of the M brakes by up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit while out on the track.BMW
The 2023 M 1000 RR is the first model to come with a carbon fiber fairing support, which is designed to be as you’d expect: lightweight but very sturdy.BMW
M Carbon wheels stand out thanks to a new clear lacquer coat. As an alternative to the M Carbon wheels, the M RR can be ordered with forged wheels.BMW

Discussing the aerodynamic improvements, BMW claims that, “The rider gains even more confidence with regard to the front wheel so he can achieve even greater lean angles or higher cornering speeds at the same lean angle.”BMW
