THE BMW M 1000 XR
BORN TO LEADBook Test Drive
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.
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
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.
Leadership par excellence
Ready? Take a seat, start the engine and dive into the M world. Behind you is the slim, performance-oriented rear with short number plate carrier. It's from this point you leave everything behind. You lead. You hear the incomparable sound that comes from the steep Akrapovič slip-on rear silencer. Your passenger also has the full M experience thanks to the passenger seat contour, slim grab handles and rear footrest bracket.
