The M 1000 XR from BMW Motorrad
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 maximizes everything: your riding experience, your endurance and, whenever you want, your adrenaline. Alternatively, you can confidently relax while traveling great distances. After all, you know you can leave almost everyone behind on a whim.

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 passion of motorsport with a lifestyle in the fast lane. The third M model completes our four-cylinder range.

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 with less fatigue, the M winglets provide increased contact pressure on the road through aerodynamic downforce. And the M brake also makes performance precisely controllable.
M + XR = long-distance performance.

The equation for an incomparable riding experience of M-like performance and XR-like long-distance capability. You won't want to get off the bike thanks to its sublime ergonomics or the available Pro and RACE riding modes. It's all there, and not just in terms of equipment. The M XR is highly versatile with its sport, touring and passenger suitability. Its weight can be minimized even further with the optional M Competition package, so that you are on the road with maximum dynamism.

Brute force in your hands

Climb on and you are constantly reminded: the M XR can move you at over 170 mph. From 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds; to 124 mph in 7.4. This is made possible by the BMW ShiftCam four-cylinder engine of the RR, adapted for the XR, with 201 hp 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 designed for performance-oriented long-distance journeys. This helps you take the lead whenever you feel like it.

Unmistakable M
Performance has three colors: light blue, dark blue and red. The characteristic M color 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 colors, but in many details.
Light White/M Motorsport
The standard bike in the color Light White solid paint with M graphics focuses on stark contrasts. The M XR is also recognizable as an M bike by the standard M brake in blue.

The measure of all things
Perfection is the sum of all details. No millimeter has been left to chance. With elaborate M paint 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 mold.
