BMW M 1000 RR for WorldSBK

Stagnation is regression, and so BMW Motorrad Motorsport continuously evolves the BMW M 1000 RR. For the 2024 WorldSBK season, there have once again been comprehensive updates in various areas, in accordance with the possibilities and requirements of the regulations. The new BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Test Team, which commenced its work last year, also contributes significantly to this development.

Through further development of the fairing, the aerodynamic efficiency has been further improved. The powerful WorldSBK engine has been enhanced for 2024 in terms of rideability and peak performance and adapted to the homologated fuel for the new 2024 season. The overall mass center and rider ergonomics have also been optimized, along with the weight of various performance components. A newly developed swingarm contributes to the improvement of grip and tyre durability. Additionally, the software and corresponding application have been further developed.

BMW Motorrad Motorsport collaborates with strong technical partners in the WorldSBK. Starting from the 2024 season, Outdo Battery is the new battery partner. The exhaust system, tailored to the extremely high demands of the Superbike World Championship, is developed in collaboration with the Slovenian experts from Akrapovič. The high-strength aluminium forged wheels of the bike are custom-made by partner Fuchsfelge PVM. All oils and lubricants for the BMW M 1000 RR come from the partner Ravenol. Starting from the 2024 season, 40% of the fuels in WorldSBK must consist of non-fossil components. In this area, BMW Motorrad Motorsport closely collaborates with Nordoel, a company with proven expertise in the use of alternative fuels in racing.
