BMW Motorrad has globally debuted the M 1000 XR, the third M motorcycle from the brand and also a high-performance version of the 2024 S 1000 XR which also makes its debut alongside. While both motorcycles are powered by a 999 cc engine, the M 1000 XR churns out more power as a result of the performance upgrades. The M also gets a range of cosmetic tweaks and additional equipment over the S 1000 XR. As of now, the motorcycles are only available in the international market.
For the year 2024, the S 1000 XR gets a few minor cosmetic tweaks over its predecessor such as the addition of new side panels towards the rear and a front fender, now painted in its body colour. The motorcycle now sits 10 mm higher than before and gets a new seat that is now more accommodating for longer saddle time. Other changes on the S 1000 XR include new colour options and updated graphics.
The M 1000 XR, on the other hand, looks like the S 1000 XR’s evil twin with its black colour scheme and M-specific livery. The motorcycle comes with lightweight aluminium wheels along with M winglets, that aid in producing more downforce. The motorcycle retains the same 6.5-inch digital instrument cluster as the S 1000 XR, but features different animations for the start up function and rev counter. Customers can also opt for the M Competition Package which makes the motorcycle three kilograms lighter, courtesy of additional M-Carbon parts such as the wheels, front fender, chain guard and side panels among others.
In terms of cycle parts, the motorcycles are suspended by an upside-down-fork setup up front and a double-sided swing arm at the rear, electrically adjustable on both ends. Additionally, the M 1000 XR also gets Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) wherein the suspension automatically adjusts to better suit the riding conditions. However, in terms of braking duties, the M 1000 XR gets M brakes with a radial hand brake pump and consists of a 320 mm twin disc setup at the front and a 265 mm single disc setup at the rear. The S 1000 XR on the other hand, gets a similar 320 mm twin disc brake setup up front and a smaller 220 mm single disc setup at the rear. Both motorcycles come with features such as lean-sensitive ABS and traction control, cruise control, and wheelie control as standard. The M 1000 XR also gets a brake slide assist function which allows the rider to brake drift into corners, along with launch control and pit lane limiter functions.
On the powertrain front, both motorcycles are powered by a 999 cc, inline-4 mill that is also featured in many other models from the brand. However, on the M 1000 XR it puts out 199 bhp, 31 bhp more than the S 1000 XR as a result of shorter gear ratios, an optimised air intake, a lighter exhaust system and a higher rev range of 14,600 rpm. Both motorcycles come mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a bi-directional quickshifter. The S 1000 XR gets four ride modes- Rain, Road, Dynamic and Dynamic Pro, while the M 1000 XR also gets additional Race Pro mode.
