M 1000 XR



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.

The perfect start: the M start-up animation

When your M XR starts up, you are immersed in the full M Experience. The TFT display switches on with the unmistakable M start-up animation and shows itself ready for your personal challenges.

Carbon parts: lighter = more power

With the carbon parts of the M Competition package on the M 1000 XR Competition, the M XR is 3 kg lighter. These include M Carbon wheels, M Carbon mudguard, M Carbon side sections and M Carbon cockpit interior trim.

Designed for performance right down to the rear

The motorsport genes of the M XR are in every detail: from the M milled parts on the M 1000 XR Competition, such as the M clutch and brake lever, to the slim rear section with steep titanium rear silencer and short number plate carrier.

Powerful and direct: the engine

The M XR has everything you need for speed. The beating heart is its extremely powerful and high-revving ShiftCam engine with 148 kW (201 hp) and a maximum speed of 14,600 rpm.

Getting performance under control: the M brake

The optional M brake offers maximum performance and resistance point and fading stability as well as excellent dosing. Externally, it is recognisable by the blue eloxal coating and M logo.

Controlled force: with M winglets

The M winglets tame the brute power of the M XR. They generate downforces at high speeds and thus provide greater driving stability, a lower tendency to do wheelies, as well as a smoother ride.

Fast forward: the ultra-sporty front

The front has an "all-black" finish, including the milled, black, upper fork bridge and legs. The M colours create an unmistakable visual asymmetry and, together with the tinted Sport windscreen, emphasise the bike's performance-oriented character.

An upgrade for the handling: M Carbon wheels

The M Carbon wheels, available only on the M 1000 XR Competition, with sports tyres take the handling of your M XR to an unimaginable level by reducing rotational mass. This way you get full power on the road from first gear.
