BMW has previously released a package of updates and accessories for the BMW S1000RR superbike using its “M performance” brand. The Bavarians are going to expand their offer and the M-line of high-performance motorcycles, therefore, they have registered the corresponding trademarks: M1000RR, M1000XS, M1300GS.


Usually the first letter in BMW’s motorcycles indicates the engine type: “R” represented BMW’s boxer Twin models, “G” for Singles, “F” for parallel-Twins, and “K” (and eventually “S”) for inline engines of four or more cylinders.In the case of the M’s, the manufacturer may slightly bend this structure.

What can we expect from these M models? The S1000RR’s M package and optional M equipment provide the obvious examples.The package includes a special paint job,carbon fiber wheels, a lighter weight battery,a sportier seat, a chassis kit with adjustable rear ride height and adjustable swingarm pivot, and a Pro ride mode. Something similar will be with the M1000RR, M1000XS, M1300GS models.

Most questions are caused by the M1300GS. BMW hasn’t used 1300 in a motorcycle name since the K1300R and K1300GT, but there has never been a K1300GS adventure bike.The most obvious option is the R1250GS with the M-package with the number rounded up to a nice even 1300. It may also hint at a larger displacement upgrade due to the installation of the kit.

Registration of trademarks does not guarantee anything, so no one knows when the new M-motorcycles will be released and whether they will be released at all.
