Since its start of production in 2009, the BMW S1000RR has been synonymous with the highest level of riding dynamics among superbikes – both on the road and on the race track.
With the M Performance Parts accessories range, BMW Motorrad is now going one step further by offering a carefully matched range of special parts for the new BMW S1000RR similar to the offer available for BMW M automobiles. These components have been developed based on the brand’s extensive racing experience – with the aim of further enhancing the driving dynamics of the new S 1000 RR not only for road use, but especially on the race track. Accordingly, the M Performance Parts accessories range includes not only parts for reducing bike weight but also a number of specialised functional parts.
Particularly light and robust carbon fibre parts are available for the body and fairing areas: M Carbon airbox cover, M Carbon chain guard in conjunction with M Carbon rear wheel cover, M Carbon front wheel cover, M Carbon sprocket cover, M Carbon fuel tank cover left/right, M Carbon fairing side panel top left/top right. The new S1000RR can also be perfectly ergonomically adapted to the size of the rider thanks to three different seat variants – M sports seat, M seat high, M seat low.
The M Performance Parts range also includes different footrest versions. The standard footrest system of the S1000RR can be upgraded with the M rider’s footrests left/right and the M passenger footrests left/right. An M rider’s footrest system left/right, especially designed for racetrack use, also offers further ergonomic adjustment options.
Extensive racing experience was also applied to the adjustable and folding M handbrake lever. For racetrack use, the M remote adjuster for the front brake also allows the rider to adjust the lever travel while riding from the left-hand end of the handlebars. On the left-hand side of the handlebars the folding M clutch lever is the corresponding counterpart to the handbrake lever. The M handbrake lever protector and the M clutch lever protector are available for both levers. In addition, the standard handlebar version of the S1000RR can be replaced with the M fork clamp for stub handlebars left/right for making individual ergonomic adjustments.
Two different M Performance wheel sets optimise acceleration, deceleration, handling as well as suspension and damping response. While the M forged wheel made of high-strength forged aluminium already offers advantages in this respect both at the front and at the rear, the M Carbon front wheel and M Carbon rear wheel made of lightweight carbon fibre almost perfectly exploit every possibility for reducing unsprung and rotational masses. The parts range for the wheels also features the M axle protectors.
M Performance Parts also include further lightweight components such as the M chain tensioner and the M lightweight battery. The new range for the S1000RR is rounded off by the mounting stand adapter set and the M cover kit.
